Carded Red Max Build, Part 5, Fin Skin Gluing
The upper picture shows the three layers viewed from the root edge.
Use your burnisher to round off the cut side edges. This won't be a full round like the folded leading edge. The burnishing just takes the squared edges down a bit.
Don't burnish over the root edge, leave that square and sharp!
Run a small bead of white glue down the outside and trailing edges of the fins. Let dry and sand lightly with 400 grit.
Repeat the glue bead again, let dry and lightly sand.
This seals the open edges and rounds them over a bit.
