Estes Solar Warrior (#3225) Build, Part 9, Fin Gluing
A strip a little wider than the 3/32" thick fins is sanded through the remaining primer exposing the bare tube.
This picture shows the small upper fins ready to glue onto their baseline.
TIP: On a four fin model you can sight over the end of the body tube to line up the opposite fins.
A fin jig alignment piece is provided.
On this kit it really comes in handy. You can check the angle of the tip plates, the fin angle and the spacing between two adjacent fins.
