SCIGS30 created a very nice .pdf of the decals, but didn't indicate any dimensions. He hasn't responded yet to my request for more info.

Of course, I'm in China, and nothing works the way it should around here (yes, I'm a tad grumpy today... I'm a little sick, I'm tired, and I'm broke, and I'm sick and tired of being broke). The instructions clearly state that the decals shouldn't reach the end of the body tube, but from what I was able to do with the .pdf file, not only does it reach the end, but it overlaps it as well.

If I can get a measurement of a decal, such as either the thickness of the decal with the stars, or the width of the Centuri Logo, I should be able to scale mine down to match the original.

Thanks!

Did you ever get what you needed here?
I have this one tucked in a box.
I can dig it out and get what you need tomorrow when I get up.
Don't know the time difference from MI to China.
BTW, do you scans with a rule of the Estes Scrambler fins?
Or know if JimZ's scan when printed is correct size?
I'm going to make them thru the wall mounting and want to get them into rocsim so I can print a template.
Thanks.

No, I didn't get the info needed. I'd appreciate it if you could find and measure that for me.

Right now I'm 13 hours ahead of you. If/when you go to daylight savings time, that will likely be 12 hours.

My .ork file for the Scrambler has accurate measurements for the fins. IIRC, I measured them from an eBay purchased kit.

Thanks.
If you download the .ork file, you can print them from there (as well as add the TTW fin tabs if you want).

I'll dig into it tonight, but I'd wake up the people in the next apartment.
So it will have to wait till morning. Silent time is from 10pm to 8am.
I've been turned in twice for my tv too loud already.
I'll get on it while I drink my tea first thing in the morning.
I don't have open rocket, but if you could post a pic, or post actual measurements that would be awesome.

Thanks Woody!

Got the images, and was able to get the info I needed. The .ork has been posted to my OpenRocket files thread.



Anyone who wants to download it, it's found in post #16. If you've downloaded the earlier version, I'd recommend deleting it and downloading the new version.
