Semroc (Estes) Starship Excalibur Build, Part 22, Fin Gluing
The fin root edges were sanded down removing most all of the grey primer filler.
The first fit required some of the inside tab to be sanded off until the fin sat flat on the crew module and BT-5 tubing slots.
Here's one of the fins after fitting.
Be sure to check the centering of the forward fin vane as shown in the inset picture.
Here's the moment every builder waits for, the finished assembly.
An impressive model.
