Hey Earl,

Didn't the Excalibur also use the same set of fins? There were a couple others also, IIRC.

I may be wrong, but I'm pretty sure the Excalibur's fins are not as wide and for sure, do not have rounded corners.

I like Semroc's fibre fins. The essence of easy.

The Excaliber fins are close, but no, they are not the same set.

As a follow-up, the kit Spirit of America, introduced by Centuri in the early 80s, also used the same fin set originally used by the Arrow 300.

Long time coming, but here it is finished. The original decals were worse shape than I thought and I screwed them up, so had to make new ones. I posted scans from another open kit here on YORF of original decals.
