Mount Fin

Now that the fuselage sides are together and the rear gussets in place, I was able to
attach the fin. I think it came out pretty well, although even with all the careful planning
and measuring, the fin spar is about 1/4 inch too short at the bottom. I can fill that with
some scrap wood pretty easily, but it probably also means that the rudder is too short, too.

Total Time: 4.0 hrs.
