Little Green Man Prototype Build, Part 5, Fin and Feet Gluing
The fins are even with the rear of the tube.
To make positioning easier, the pencil line was extended around the end of the tube. A line was also drawn down the middle of the leading and trailing ledges.
The middle fin lines were simply matched up to the line on the body tube.
To be sure the fin height was the same, a wrap of masking tape was rolled around the tube after the first fin was glued on.
The feet were glued onto the outside edge of the main fin leg.
The "toes" were turned out from the heel end.
The inset picture shows the angle of the glue line.
The launch lug is glued to the root edge of the back third leg.
