I was thinking the same thing. Asteroid Explorer and Alien Space Probe would be my guesses.

First thought when I saw the catalog image was those trailing tips of the fins are going to break off along the grain line even with the end of the airframe.

That's how I would approach it too ..... remove that small area and cut a small piece from fin stock for that tip section and turn it so the grain faces the other direction.
