Building the (scratch) B3S2 (part 2)

Fins — paper glued, trimmed, thin CA on the edges, ready.IMG_7884 I decided, sure, let’s cant them. I kludged up a modification to the Estes fin thing.IMG_7887 It’s the first time I’ve done canted fins, deliberately anyway, so I took it slow. One at a time, lots of time for the yellow glue to set before moving on to the next. I’m not in a hurry.

I may have gone a bit overboard on the “looks don’t matter, weight doesn’t matter, drag doesn’t matter, just build it strong” with these big unsmoothed nasty fin fillets. I was a little less crude with the fillets on the big fat launch lug.IMG_7893
