Default exhaust stacks for a CMP P-40 .50 size?

I'm just finishing up a CMP P-40 .50 size and the exhaust stacks provided are just butt ugly. Has anyone come up with a replacement to use instead?? I may look through my pile of stuff and see if I have some old Top Flite plastic stacks if I can't get something else. That would be better than what CMP provides.

I ended up using fuel tubing with CA to hold in place. Works well so far.

I used copper tubing and then burnt the ends with a propane torch to look used. mounted them to a sheet of ply and stuck them in from the back side with some epoxy. Worked great and looks pretty real too.
