Estes Solar Warrior (#3225) Build, Part 10, Fin Alignmment

A wrap of paper was used to make sure the base of the upper fins were in line around the tube.

The aluminum angle was used to be sure the upper and lower fins were in line. Just don't set the edge of the angle into any glue along the root edges.

The single 3/16" launch lug is centered between two fins, 6" from the end of the body tube.

Here's how the model looks with the tail cone slipped in place and before fin fillets were applied.
