A couple years ago, we bought a large box of chopsticks from Costco. It's almost time to buy another box. I also use them for applying glue for the MM in the BT.

Admittedly, I haven't done much reloading this year, but the ammo press makes an excellent holder for rockets.

For supporting rocket parts and small rockets for painting, I really like the big bag of bamboo skewers you can get for a buck at the grocery store. I don't eat enough Chinese food to collect a useful amount of chopsticks.

For small nose cones- in a pinch I have just used a sheet of newspaper- roll it into a tube around the shoulder of the nose cone along with some tape and then use it like a handle.

I will give them a try.
I think a nicely painted nosecone makes the model.
