The kit is designed to fit 3 tube sizes so you can create your preferred scale model.

We’ve created additional support in the satellite with a hardwood dowel within the hollow tip. Don’t forget to complete your kit with paint and decals (not included).
Boyce Aerospace Hobbies recommends hobbyists under the age of 13 be supervised by an adult at all times.
I ordered the one that fits the ST-20 size body tube and I can honestly tell you it is the finest such item ever made available to build a Juno 1 or Jupiter C from. It is near break proof and has great detail. You can even add nose weight by unscrewing the bottom section from the main nose cone section. I Highly recommend it if you want to build a juno1/ Jupiter C for your collection. In my case, got a great price on a Estes Mercury Redstone kit, so converted it with this cone set.
