Now the fins are made with a 1x 1/16 balsa wood strip. I covered the balsa strip with self adhesive paper and wrapped it over the edge of the strip.
I cut the fin covers out and placed them one at a time on either side of the strip.
The last thing to do was to cut the fin from the balsa sheet using a new sharp #11 blade.
The only painting I did on the fins was the bottom edge and the end of the fins.
