Extend Fin and Rudder to Meet Fuselage

When mounting the fin to the fuselage, it turned out that the fin spar was about 1/4 inch too short to meet the bottom of the fuselage. The rudder was even shorter. I extended them both so that they're now flush with the bottom of the fuselage. The fin was extended with a piece from the old fin, and the rudder was extended with some balsa wood.

Total Time: 5.0 hrs.
