Gee, how did they do it before lasers were invented?
Old school kit, old school build.
Trace the templates onto balsa and cut out.
Patterns are at JimZ's.
Save yourself a few bucks.
Yeah, I know, I sometimes get lazy and buy laser cut fins for my clones too.
But doing it the old way develops CRAFTSMANSHIP.
Laters.

The parts were die-cut, do you have or can you find a scan of the parts with a ruler?

I've had the file, since, at least, 2011 . . . I can't recall the original source.

There is an article, where Jeff Vincent did a Mini-Dactyl upscale for "D" power.
