Centuri kit that used this nose cone:
Kit# 5353 Lil' Ivan

The Lil' Ivan was initially released in the 1982 Centuri catalog. Its Russian decor reflected the cold war period at the time. Produced near the end of Centuri's existence before Estes dropped most of the surviving Centuri line.
It was one of the first Centuri designs that used Estes parts. Instead of the ST-16, the Lil' Ivan used the BT-60 body tube and the PNC-60MS blow molded plastic nose cone that was shared with the Big Bertha & Baby Bertha.

19DEC2020: Two files added with truncated nose cones with 1.0mm and 1.5mm thick walls. They are for the Dynasoar Rocketry Colonial Viper RC rocket glider.
