Has anyone any ideas what I could use for a lamp-cap for an NST model?  The scale I work at, I've previously used plastic screw-covers for lamp caps for everything, including my Bad Wolf and 2010 TARDIS models, because I could never figure out a way of making that little peak on top.

Carve it out of balsa wood?  Or is there some kind of acrylic "putty" I could mould it with that would set solid?  Anyone got any tips?

Cheers

what about the screw cover with the little domed cap from the bottom of a Bic Biro glued on next with the nib of said Biro cut down as the nipple sort of bit at the top?

Might work?  ???

Some dollar stores used to sell small spin tops that had this shape. They weren't more than maybe an inch in diameter, unless that's too large.
