Clear BT-80 body tubes?

There's a project I'm thinking about that would be "improved" by having a clear payload section so the payload in visible. Is there such a thing out there in the diameter range of say an Estes BT-80, or there abouts?

they have some that are 2.610 " OD and 2.554" ID which is close enough for government work for a BT-80 that is 2.600"/ 2.558"... they come in 8.75"-24" in length ........ and you can even ask for a free sample !

I've seen some clear and colored "fluorescent tube protector" tubing at TAP Plastics, but I don't know if it corresponds to any "rocket tube" size. (It fits over a standard "F40T12" size fluorescent lamp which is 1-1/2 in. OD.)

It's close to BT60, at least the stuff I used once (lonnnng ago) for a see through rocket was.
