FlisKits Mercury Redstone Build Part 6 Fin Air Rudders
Here the pencil lines are drawn down the taper line using the extended lines already drawn on the instruction sheet.
Cut the basswood edge off down to the leading edge on both sides of the Air Rudders.
I used a four sided fingernail file to taper the Air Rudders first.
The Air Rudder squares were a little loose on the basswood.
I added strips off packing tape to both sides to help hold them onto the sheet.
Use the pencil line as a taper reference.
The leading edge tip is a knife edge.
Sand the tapers on opposite sides. The kit included six air rudders. Four will be used in construction, two are extras.
