This is my quick build of the Falcon 9 from SpaceX.
Not a perfect mock up, but good enough for basic usage.
I forgot to add the coupler for the main body tube, but that probably wouldn't effect much.
Other than that, measurements should be pretty close to exact.
I've been playing with using Aerotech motors rather than the recommended Estes.
The fins have been reenforced with epoxy fillets all the way down the root chord.
Again, I know it should be a mass object in OR if I was trying to be super precise, but for my needs, it works.
Hope it helps you out a little!

OR has the option for fin filets, pretty sure that is for mass...epoxy has a density of approx. 1.1g/cm^3, however the best way is to build the model then weigh it.

Good info!
I'll toss that on my file.
I see exactly where to add it now.
