The wrap around of the fascia would be 90 degrees if the rafter tails are cut plumb. The corners should be 45 degrees.

The rafters are not plumb cut,they're square cut so the corners require a compound miter on a hip roof. Dont know the angles for a 6/12 pitch hip for the fascias

Don't know if this will help but when I have complicated cuts, I work it out on scrap boards first to get the pattern, then cut my good board when I am positive it is correct. In my experience, it is highly likely that none of the corners will be the same and you will have to tweak your pattern a little at every corner. Good luck!

Mike,
6/12 pitch should be 26.5 degrees. Like Guest said, try some scrap pieces first.
