Default Centuri Screaming Eagle / Spartan fin can

I've designed a 3D model of the fin can/fin unit used in the Centuri model rocket kits Screaming Eagle and Spartan. You can download it for free from Thingiverse and print it on your 3D printer.

Very nice.

Not to be too picky but the original Spartan used balsa fins.

...and not to be picky, part 2.

The Stellar Spartan fin is just a bit different than the Screaming Eagle fin. The 'bottom inside cut', that is, the cut of the fin from the trailing inside edge back to the root edge (I hope that description makes some sense) is a bit shorter than that same section on the Screaming Eagle fin.

A jpg of the Spartan fin sheet is attached with ruler.

I didn't know that.
From the photos of the finished kits they look exactly the same!

It shouldn't stop someone from wanting to make a Spartan model with this fin can.
