well if you don't like paper shrouds, given the dimensions, I'm sure the Sandman could and would turn you really nice ones out of balsa.....

If it's like some of the other TLP kits, you may have to make a paper "hat" for a round nose cone to get a pointed shape. Carl did an excellent review of the Standard ARM for EMRR, in which he described his technique for making those "hats."
