If you're not opposed to a bit of work go to the hardware store and find the smallest wooden dowel you can (about 1/4"-3/8").  Cut it to length, sand along the length of the dowel so it's flat on one side and then use that.  Or use a product called "Friendly Plastic".  Basically it's a jug of plastic beads that you can head up, mold to the shape you want and then it cools into that shape.  I've never personally used it, but a few of my colleagues have and they love the stuff.  Here's a basic explanation and some instructions.  http://www.theframeworkshop.co.uk/friendly-plastic-instructions.html

World or wonder flex was going to be my suggestion. You can get a sample size pretty cheap if memory serves. That should be plenty for what you're wanting to do.

I honestly have no idea where you could get it. Other than costuming applications I don't know what it could be used for. Maybe Google it lol?

yeah, it might be a good idea to put a bit of bondo at the seam on both sides of the fin where the fin meets the helmet, just to give it a bit more structure to support it. but it's up to you, it's your bucket.

i was actually thinking about some liquid nails silicone so it can be sandable and paintable ...its less of a hassle than bondo ;D

you can paint and sand bondo, in fact that's one of the things it was designed to have done to it.
