Centuri PNC-10-something... by Estes?

Okay, here goes.
According to the 2002 Estes catalog, the MK-109 Stingray (EST 2131),
Banshee (EST 2132), AGM-57X Heatseeker (EST 2158), and Bandit (EST
2060) are all 1.0" dia. -- the old Centuri ST-10, from all
appearances.
Additionally, the Super Shot in the "Super Shot" (EST 1449) starter
kit and the Army/Navy rockets in the "Missile Command" (EST 1818)
starter kit are also 1.0" dia.
If you have the instruction sheets for any of these kits, would you
please post the Estes part number for the nose cone? I'm guessing
it's a standard 5-digit number.
*Then* I can finally use my custom Centuri Javelin ~1.4X (ST-7 to
ST-10)upscale decals from Tango Papa... and the Totally Tubular
T-1.04" body tubes.
Thanks in advance,

Hi, Jay,
As best I can tell, whenever the catalog says 1.0" diameter, it is referring to the HBT-1090 tube of 1.09" diamter. I've already tried putting a PNC-1090 into a T-1.04, and it won't fit.
Now, why the catalog writers round 0.976 to 0.98 but 1.09 to 1.0 is beyond me.
Sorry, although I have a solitaire 1090 cone, I have no part number. It was the purple one with the transition/bulkhead thingy molded in with the cone.
HTH, Doug

They've started doing it on the other tubes too. For years a BT-60 has been 1.637". Now it is listed as 1.64". BT-55 was 1.325", now it's listed as 1.33".

The number for the bandit is 72634
I looked at a couple others that I have and they don't mention any number.

Jay, I can't remember which one used the purple cone. If you're looking for the HBT-1090, Zak suggested the other day New England Hobbies/Time Machine in Manchester, CT.
Fellow DARS member Dave Schaefer has said he's seen some 1090 tubes in an Oklahoma hobby store, and that he'd pick some up next time up there.
Of course, once I get a tube, I'll still need rings :)

So Doug, this just means you're incurable? (HUGE WINK) Actually, that *might* be the case if you were a superhero's sidekick: "Well, Epoxy Boy, you *did* 'stick it to' that criminal..."
