Cherokee Goon Build, Part 2, Pieced Fins

My Cherokee Goon fins will be the same size as the BT-55 original kit fins.

I've only got 3" wide balsa on hand, the root edge is a bit longer.
I'll piece it together from scraps.

This old, shelf worn balsa was picked up cheap at the local hobby store. Both the edges were a little banged up.

The edges that are to be glued were sanded square with a block and 220 grit.

Be sure the balsa is on a flat surface, the gluing area covered with some waxed paper.
While pressing the edges together some medium CA was dropped on the seam. Let the glue drop run down the joint.
