Default TMRK Pegasus Fin Guide

So I have come to discover the fin guide is off on my TMRK Pegasus. I already have the tube slotted . What to do now? I caught it when I tried to center the engine mount and noticed the fins would not line up. I then double checked the wrap around fin guide and made sure I marked everything correctly and I did. Next I downloaded one from payload bay and sure enough it is off Any Ideas?

So after scratching my head on this for a little bit I decide to do some online research on the Pegasus launch vehicle. I actually found a principle dimensions print on line and the rear fins are not on 0, 120 and 240 degrees. The top fin is on 0 and the two bottom fins are 23 degrees below 90 and 270 degrees. The fin guide is right.

Brent,

If you have questions about the TMRK Pegasus contact John Brohm here. He did a detailed build/report on this that he sent me. Unfortunately, it's on the computer that died. I didn't get it posted before it croaked.

Scott, this build report: http://www.rocketshoppe.com/info/Pe...uild_Report.pdf ?

Brent, I recently built this, so let me know if you have any questions; The details are still reasonably fresh in my head.
