Estes Constellation Build Part 13, Fin Prep
Before spraying a white coat to check for flaws, a small bit of the root edge was masked off.
This was to keep some of the fillet area clear for a stronger glue joint.
After a light coat of gloss white the tape was removed.
You can see the fillet area is clear of white paint.
The pencil fin lines were roughed up with 220 grit on a block.
After sanding off the lines they were drawn on again.
