Wow! I first interpreted that to be "Model Missiles"! Maybe I did spend too
much at the Cannon auction at NARAM-47 :-)
Actually, I've found a CHAD way to make Micro Maxx nose cones. I've got a
sharpened brass tube that I manually push through a 1" cube of balsa to cut
the blanks. A second one the next size smaller indents the shoulder. Then
you can use a pencil sharpener, or just sand until it's cone-like.
If someone were to make MM nose cones, I'd recommend pine or basswood or
spruce over balsa. It's hard to work balsa that small without making a fuzzy
mess. Plus most MM models seem to need nose weight any way. WHen they were
new, and I was in a MM frenzy for a while, most of my obvious scale-downs

I can't speak for "companies", but I would think that many individuals
(myself especially) would like to see some BT-70-sized nosecones, as this
size seems to be pretty much ignored by the companies, except for a few
exceptions (except...exceptions...Is that a redundancy?...lol)
