Building the [scratch] Mega Sprite (part 3)

Here’s the body tube with cardboard mock fins taped on, and the ring fin around that. Fin size looks pretty near perfect. Could stand to cut them a bit more generous I guess. I trimmed the plywood to size, having initially cut it about a half inch wide before gluing it on. One end isn’t quite stuck down so I forced some glue under it and put it back under the clamp. I’ll want to treat the ring edges with glue and that’ll be it.

I realized I needed one more piece of 1/16″ x 4″ balsa, and I could run out to the hobby store I was just at yesterday or the nearer Michael’s, or I could do it another time. I’m doing it another time.
