I want to ordera bunch of packs of Estes BT-5 Body Tube couplers/Joiners (est302297 for the BT-5) So far I have not found them on any of the hobby sites I also need a bunch of BT-5 nose cones (the long pointed ones. The the ones 2.5 inches total length (anyone know the individual part number for the longer nose cone in the nose cone package) NC-5 Nose Cones EST303084. So far I have not gotten totaly tubular on the phone to see if he has the joiners. Estes wont sell them to me. One kind gentlemen was kind to get me 4 which I think will get my Gryphon done. Thank you! You know who you are!

You could try BMS.

They carry BT-5 body tubes and couplers. They also make balsa nose cones. Probably in the shape you want.

By all means, order from BMS and totally tubular. Also, I think Fliskits carries some of the components you are looking for.

I'm not sure if I can recommend Apogee.
