Quick and dirty saucer mod

Yesterday, I posted on the 29mm upgrade to a small Art Applewhite saucer. I thought I'd outline my unconventional approach to the mod:
  1. Reinforce fin attachments to the body with 5-minute epoxy.
  2. Measure and mark the fins for the larger tube.
  3. The fins are thin basswood so I cut them off with kitchen scissors (in situ).
  4. Adjust to fit with a Dremel.
  5. Attach fins and lugs with more epoxy.
  6. Done!
