Estes Mini Max #2445 Build, Part 2, Nose Cone Prep
The inset shows the Mini Max nose cone. About 3 1/8" is exposed.
It turns out the Mini Max nose cone is not a true downscale. It should be closer to 4" long.
The nose cone shoulder is different.
The vertical friction fit bands give an adjustable fit allowing you to sand the ribs if needed.
On this nose cone shoulder the ribs are wider at the bottom.
The nose cone tip does need some cleaning up.
The after in shown in the inset picture. There were no side seams on the injection molded nose cone.
