I'm about to get started on a Madcow Sea Wolf missile. I'm looking to keep this fun and sport scale, not interested in detailing it out, but I'm having trouble finding some scale references. Specifically, I'm trying to find out if the real Sea Wolf's main fins are squared, rounded, or tapered. Does anyone have a link to some decent drawings I could refer to when working on my new project?

Thanks! Looks like way too much work for me on this one, plus I want to keep the aft fins crunch-resistant by not tapering the trailing edge. Since this build is a sport scale anyway, I may just taper the front of the main and aft fins and leave it at that. Even that will be a lot of sanding on these ply fins.
