What Part Is This?

Can anybody identify this rocket kit part?

No prize, I'm just curious if anyone knows what it is.
I usually keep small pieces in zip-lock bags and was surprised when I couldn't find it during assembly. I found it on the bathroom floor, of all places!

  1. Looks like the tip off a glue bottle that you snip to open the glue like the tacky craft glue in the brown bottle ect

    1. No, but it does look like a nozzle.
      It's more obscure than that.

  4. How about 20 questions...?

    Is it a model rocket part (from a kit)?

  5. Is it from a scale kit of a real rocket, or a rocket someone made up to kit?

    1. Hi Mushtang,
      It's not from a "scale" model of a real rocket, but a downscale of a movie character.
