Sculpting Leading Edge Wing Tips

Building Seamaster Day 21: Wing Leading Edge Tips and Fin

On May 4th I worked on the wing and tail of the aircraft.

Seen above I worked on sanding the leading edge, specifically the wing tip corners to get the desired taper.

The fin of the aircraft is composed of two pieces, front and back.  I started by sanding off the ‘burnt’ finish from the laser cutting and then glued the two pieces together, pinned them to the board and placed weights on top to hold everything in place while the glue dried.  This is seen below, the wax paper is to ensure nothing gets stuck to any glue that oozes out that shouldn’t.
