      It was hard to find more than lengt and diameter. I gess you have to stipelate the rest...
      Here is my first shot. the body dimensions are good. The fins are guesstimated from photos.

      I haven't split it up into easily printable parts yet. Let me know if you think it OK and i'll work on the printing.

      • Just a quick question: Is it pronounced: "grippin" or "gripe'n"?

              The latter. At least that will be far closer.

              G + reap (what you sow) + en (as in the last two letters of an egg-laying hen)

              In general pronounced far slower than most Americans by instinct would.

                Great job!

                Would propose the following changes:

                - Lose the aft fins on the nose part. They should not be there.
                - The body diameter should probably be increased a tiny tad. The diameter should be almost exactly the same as each of the large vanes.

                    There aren't any fins on the nose part. If you read the comments you would know what they are.

                            Changed the diameter too.

                            • Tomato, tomaato ..................... Let's put this thing to rest. It's a ridiculous debate. Pronounce it however you want. It's like that whole crap about "tail heavy", "tail heavier", "nose heavy", "nose heavier". EVERYBODY knows what you're talking about. (Where's that FACEPALM emoji?)

                                  No, it's not! :)
                                  And I couldn't care less about what you think is or isn't crap, tbh.

                                  You can keep those comments to yourself and spare the readers of actual useless 'crap'.

                                  Best regards,
                                  Jandro.

                                        Awesome!

                                        Sure you uploaded the changed version on thingi? Re-downloaded now and seems unchanged.

                                          What's wrong with those who DO speak the language in question trying to teach those who don't?

                                          Well, I guess if it is a life goal of yours to avoid pronouncing every foreign word incorrectly, then sure.
