FlisKits Mercury Redstone Build Part 19, Primer and Sanding
The fins were shot with primer/filler.
The air rudder joint had some fuzz that showed up when the primer dried.
The low end of the fin fillet (fairing) was sanded round with 400 grit wrapped around a Q-tip.
The upper half of the fillet was sanded with a sharp fold of 400 grit.
The first white coat followed. (Inset picture)
The square corner of a razor blade was dragged over the fin tip and air rudder joint to sharpen the inside corner. I'm not cutting here, just scraping a little filler and defining the joint.
