Question New Scans Of The Quest Icarus (2006) Fins, Decals (along with a ruler)

Yes, I've seen the instructions and scans on plans.rocketshoppe/ problem is, those fins are clearly not unmodified scans of the originals (if they are, then they're the worst lasercut fins ever. Also the decals don't have a ruler to assure scaling.

If you have a built Icarus, a measurement of the width of the black wrap would also work to allow me to scale the decals.

I'm hoping to get scans of originals along with a ruler for a new sim I'm working up.


Dreaming of making the rockets I dreamed of as a kid (and then some).

"The Guide says there is an art to flying", said Ford, "or rather a knack."
"The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss."

Launching is Optional... Landing? That Depends on Trees.

The fins on Quest kits in that era were die cut, not laser cut. I don't have that particular kit, but other Quest kits of the same vintage (early 1990s) did not have very good die cutting of the balsa parts.
