I could use a little help with this. I'm seeing the MRI Lambda 8 as a four fin rocket, but I can also see it as a three fin. Anyone have an opinion?

At least 3!

The longer I looked at it, the more undecided I became. It first appeared that the angles looked more like 90, and maybe the artist just decided not to try to draw that 4th fin, with so little to realistically show.

Some special sentimental value ?
All of their supposed "designs" are about as exciting as an Estes Kadet.
Meh..
