Default Interceptor fin guide

I'm looking for a scan or drawing of the K50 fin marking guide. A search of YORF didn't turn up anything, and I didn't see a template on JimZ either. Thanks!

Sure there is. It's in the PDF file.

I've used it to make a standard size, two smaller sizes and a BT-80 sized monster.

I have a lot of the patterns already scaled.

I have a redrawn marking template for this kit if you are interested. I drew it in Illustrator and the angles are all symetrical and should be a little better than the Estes one. Let me know if you would be interested in this template.

We think alike, Sandman. I turned a practice cone for the Interceptor out of some scrap pine the other day. I'll do one out of balsa soon.

Can I take you up on the Illustrator files for K-50, Kurt? I'm having a devil of a time in my redraw.

Bob,

Here is the marking guide. To explain about this guide though, it is an evenly spaced recreation of what I thought the original Estes one should be. It looked pretty good on my clone.

If you want or need the decal files, I think those are on Scott's site or I will send them to you too. Let me know.

Kurt

FWIW, here is a (relatively poor) picture of my recent Interceptor clone next to its 30+ year-old brother.

Nice pic Kurt. I hope to have a 'matching' set soon. Do you still fly them both?

*LOL* I have that 30+ year old brother's twin. I'm working a clone as well. Thanks for that fin guide Kurt!

Well, no. I flew the old one about 6-7 years ago at one of our launches, and I've flown the new one once at the sod farm. The plastic parts on the new one (and the old one too) are real Estes parts, and I think it got brittle from age because the shock cord loop on the nose cone cracked on the first flight. That caused a separation but the body came in very slowly and in a horizontal attitude, almost a glide. It settled undamaged on the tall grass which was fortunate. Anyway, I haven't done anything to fix that and it just sits on the shelf now.
