Harpoon build status #4
Here's a photo showing the progress to date. The lower fins are in and have trim pieces attached. These are not very scale-like but should look OK once painted the same color as the body. They should also help strengthen the fins.
I also cut a trim piece from a section of the inside part of a telescoping mailing tube. (The tan part that looks like a necktie.) This was pre-drilled for the rail buttons (using the handy-dandy drill guide from Dog House Rocketry) and will have to be extended through the body tube.
Next up: more filling and attaching the forward fin set. (The green tape is to mark their position.)
