FlisKits Mercury Redstone Build Part 18, Fin Gluing, Fillets and Launch Lug

The rear of the fins overhang the rear end of the body tube.
The center low air rudder in the inset picture will have to be adjusted. It's leaning to the left.

Fillets were applied and smoothed wider at the bottom.
The real Redstone had a tapered fairing that was thin at the top and wide at the rear.
I might add some pull away plugs.

The launch lug and standoff seem too big for the model.
I'll probably do some sort of removable lug or a pop lug. I haven't made pop off lug in years.
