Estes Constellation Build Part 6 Fin Tip Pods
Both sides of the dowel pod were sanded flat to match the thickness of the three layer kit fins.
The flattened side edges were rounded again.
The dowel pod was set on the fin edge matching up the top, bottom and sides.
A fine pencil line was drawn around the side.
The fin pod was cut off just outside the line for shaping.
Sandpaper wrapped around a pen barrel to smooth the curve and fit the pod sides.
Here's a good fit of the dowel pod in the fin recess.
