Question
Need to make a nose cone for an F16

I have all the typical ideas but was curious about any sure-fire easy methods. The diameter is about 3/4 the size of a pop can (at the base) and then obviously goes to a point...

Thanks!

Cut a piece of roughly shaped foam insert a bolt ( bit of hot glue to keep it in place ) put the bolt into the end of a drill , start the drill and then use sandpaper as it rotates to define the shape.
