Not sure if this is the right place to post but here goes.
I am upscaling a big bertha 2 and a half times larger.
Actually 2.458 to be exact.
I am using a PML 3.9" tube.
I have all the materials needed except the nosecone.
I have found one production nosecone that is close but it is shorter and more blunt.
Anyone know where I can find one?

Thanks
Jim:)

Our own friendly Sandman will probably be able to turn you a nosecone for your rocket! He does great work, and it is worth EVERY penny you'd pay for it!

missileman,

I can make that for you.

Email or PM me and we can talk material and price.

I just finished a similar 6" one in balsa for an upscale Astron Scrambler.

Sandman!!

From first post to completed nosecone in under 16 hours!

If you get any faster, you'll be a mind reader!!

The cone looks great!

All I can say is WOW.
Looks great.
Hope the rest of the rocket will live up to the grade A nosecone.
:D

Jim,

If you're in a real hurry for it, drive up to my house and pick it up!

I just checked the map you're less than an hour away...a nice Sunday drive.

Bring something to fly!!...Oh, yea...wear some boots...the fields are a little muddy!

go up to BT-80-sized body tube, and use a Fat Boy nose cone
Then it would be a Super Big Bertha clone!

I have had the Great honor of meeting Sandman in person today when he hand delivered the excellent upscale BB nosecone.
Thank You Sandman and I look forward to seeing you again.
Now its time to build this thing.
I will post a new thread in a couple of days complete with PICs :D
What a wonderfull world the Rocketry comunity is.
