The name of the plastic one--Fin Alignment Guide--if it had been used as an acronym, would have been charmingly un-PC (although British and Australian folks often use that term for kindling sticks and cigarettes, even today). :-) I have an unopened one in a desk drawer next to me; maybe one day it will be collectible, as an "Edsel" product from Estes? :-)
