    Yesterday I went to storage and just dumped everything from the hanging bins into boxes.
    I was sorting through my balsa scraps and came across these 3 pieces that look like a fin set.
    They are 3/32" and laser cut. I don't think they are from a kit, but I could be wrong.
    But I think they are scrap from a larger kit. Perhaps the Xarconian Cruiser or the Solar Warrior or maybe the Hi-Flyer XL builds I have going.
    So I thought I would ask.
    I have a BT-55 with a launch lug on it from a build I started years ago that damaged in the move.
    A reclaimed 18mm engine mount w/Kevlar attached from another damaged build.
    So I'm thinking on using these fins to put something together to make things fly.
    Unless...someone can identify that these fins actually are for a kit.
    But I've yet to find a match to a kit.
    Good Luck, and Thank You for the help.

    I'm surprised no one had an idea of what these fins might be a part of.
    I've created a rocket with parts listed in OP, below.
    I call it Scrappy-55, with a Halloween Themed Paint Scheme.
    It's a BT-55 11-7/8" long and had a 3" launch lug glued to it already.
    Using the 18mm engine mount salvaged from another rocket mishap from moving.
    It's basic, but RocSim isn't my thing, but I can get things to fly...most of the time.

    Can't help you Woody... The one rocket it made me think of used die crushed fins, and 4 of them at that. That said, it went OOP before Estes did laser cut.
