Semroc IRIS Build Part 15 Fin Tabs

After spraying the fins a white undercoat, I noticed the laser cut sides of the fin tabs weren't accepting the paint. They still looked brown.
I hit the sides with a light coating of white glue. After the glue dried, it was lightly sanded.

White paint was sprayed into the spray can cap and brushed onto the sides of the fin tabs. Again, a little sanding and another coat. This gave me an even coverage of white.

I still had some dips in the fin tab seam.

I applied a little wood filler and sanded.

The fins were lightly sprayed and sanded again.

The reflected light in the picture shows the sanded area around the tab.
