Next I used a scrap of 1×3 to make a jig for gluing the main fins together.
I penciled in the alignment lines that had mostly been obliterated on the transverse fins.
And here’s the gluing jig in action. Or in static. Or something. I added fillets with Titebond NDNR.It’s getting abnormal, isn’t it? And more so next: I’d chosen to prime and sand the pieces before doing any more gluing.
So once those fins dried I masked the root edges. I also marked up the body tube and put 1/4″ wide strips of masking tape where the fins and launch lug will go, and I masked off the part of the rear tube that will go inside the forward tube.(Forward tube not shown.)
I’ve shot the first coat of primer on these parts. Will sand next.
