    Here is a option to make turn fin for sport40 or scale hydros, hard to get any one to make a good fin.
    Get a JAE 45 turn fin from ZIPP it is a good size with the curve on the bottom. Cut off top .5 inch for the scale and 1 inch for sport40 size.

    I would like to see ZIPP make up some fins to use on sport20, 40, and scale hydros.
    i have make up the L mount shown.

    Funny Phil. I am building a JAE and held my sport fin up against the JAE fin yesterday and thought the same thing. Mike Hughes and Dick Tyndal both make great fins.

    Yes IMO Tyndall is the best fin just abit slow to produce. Mike Hughes can make good fin too.

    Looking for a Virginia craftsman sport 40 turn fin or something close it sounds like I might have to do what phil suggests but I thought I would put a shout out for one first. Thanks Jeff
