That said, they will make parts that have been made before. Even custom ones.

I’m not sure what you mean by that. I was told by them that they didn’t do any custom work at all. I asked specifically about the Vincia. Can you clarify?

I have attached a RockSim file I made for the Vincia rocket. This was a very difficult one to simulate because of the shape of the fins. However, when I print out the fin template it is pretty close to the shape of the fin template in the original article. The simulation indicates that the 3oz of nose weight might not be necessary and that the altitude on a flight with an E30 motor might not be as high as the article in Sport Rocketry indicated.

Here are some pics I took at the NAR 60th Anniversary Rocketeer Reunion last August. This was a Len Fehskens tribute display that included an original Vincia and a kit.
