Well, it took a while, but I finally finished the Manta Bomber Nose cone out of cardstock - I think it looks pretty good and is pretty close. The only thing I didn't put in was the gun ports - I may try a later version that has those, but this gets us started.

Whatcha think?

I think it looks cool.
Is it just two meshes, one for the "cockpit" and one for the "canopy"?

Basically - the parts are the nose cone body, the canopy, the base, which is 3/4" BT-50, and a shoulder. I've designed it so you can either make a foamcore plug to go in the shoulder (and attach the shock cord with a screw eye just as a balsa cone), or use an Estes style shock cord mount inside the shoulder. That's pretty much it.
