Ok, using my rather inadequate photo reconnaissance skills, I pulled the following measurements off of the picture... Root= 1.125" Tip= 1" Span= 1.5"
Does that seem about right?

Upon further review (and having checked out some more pics) I think the fins are closer to:

Root= 1.375
Tip= 1.0625
Span= 1.625

Does this seem close?

Using a caliper on the Kadet below,:
Span: 1.583
LE/TE:1.593
Tip:0.99
Root:1.244

Two of the four fins have a tiny uptic at the tips, see the picture
The .99 was measured on those fins.

Glad to help, there has so much misinformation about these. You did get close. Beware when cloning,the fin can bulges in the middle so don't use the span if you are making a template to glue on a bt-50, just box it out with edges.
