Fin Fillet Drying - TIP

Here's one way to hold the fins horizontally while the fillets dry.
Glue fillets will run, you'll want your model to dry horizontally.

TIP: Roll up a magazine just a bit larger than the body tube. Tape the magazine closed.
After the fillets are applied, slide the body tube into the magazine.
You can tape the magazine down to your work area just to be sure it won't roll. The fins should hang over the edge of your work table.
The weight of the rolled magazine will hold the lighter front end of the model down.
