I made some real progress tonight, it's starting to come together. I'm basically following the Estes plans. I epoxied all 6 fins on. I took my time I did them one at a time to make sure they went on straight, which was easy, as Leo did an excellent job on getting the curvature to match the body tube. I made sure to work the epoxy into the holes I drilled and I roughed up the back of the fin pads with sandpaper to further help with adhesion. I also tried to keep the amount of epoxy I used low making sure to get a nice even thin coat that wouldn't ooze out.
