Default A.S.P. fin thickness?

Hello All,

(Before I ask my question about the Estes A.S.P. Semi-Scale kit below, take a gander at Chris Timm's "UK missile pics" thread on this forum section!)

Now to my question: I was just looking at the mini-motor powered Estes A.S.P. Semi-Scale kit (Cat. No. #0862, see: ). The plans are online here: ( and ).

What thickness of sheet balsa (1/16", 1/8", or 3/32") did it use for its fins? (John Brohm's Body Tube/Kit Index says that it used an 18" length of BT-20 for its body tube, and it had a BNC-20N balsa nose cone, for which the PNC-20A nose cone in the Wizard and Viking kits is a plastic direct replacement.) The Estes A.S.P. would make a nice "fun scale" kitbashing project.

Many thanks in advance to anyone who can help.
