Default Centuri Bandito fin pattern

While I am on a roll here, anyone have a scan of the Centuri Bandito cardboard fins?

Here is a scan of the three paper fins with ruler. I see that when I did this scan a couple years ago, I layed bottom fin up so the pre-made 'crease' down the center could be seen. Fins are a thin pre-cut card stock paper but is decently stiff. Once folded into that wedge shape they are pretty strong.

As I recall my vintage build back in the day, the fins are a bit trickier to attach evenly spaced around the body tube than it might first appear. Unique design though for its day.
