Any good sites offer a selection of elipsoid nose cones in the 3-6" range? I have several models on my planning desk that call for them, but it seems all the vendors like to sell 4:1 to 5:1 ogive or conical styles. I can always go the Python route.

Performance Hobbies has 3, 4, 6, and 7.5 inch elliptical.

I recently asked Python about a custom 5" elliptical, he only does 6" and up.
Looks like performance also has a 5.5"

I snagged a 5.5" elliptical from Madcow for my planned L2. It was a unique item they got from Rocketry Warehouse during The Acquisition. Someone at my club said it reminded them of a Perf. Rocketry cone. Fit's 5.5" Loc tubing perfectly.
