Default Covering question. Bill Evan future Shock

Hi I need to cover the wings of a Bill Evans Future Shock. this is a tailless design.

The issue I have is the the vertical fins are going to be glued to the wings parallel to the fuse.

Not sure how I should go about covering this. Cover the wings and cut the holes then glue them on.

Glue them on and cover around them??

Any suggestions would be helpful.

Will be using Monokote.

TIA

For that one, I'd cover first, then attach the verticals

good luck

Cover first then cut the covering. If you have cut small slots and have matching tabs on the fins this makes finding where to cut a doddle.

TOP TIP Get some low tack masking tape and mask off the cut. leave a tiny piece of covering showing. 1/32 in. Epoxy, smooth the fillet off and remove the tape immediately pulling at 180 degrees.

MUST BE TOP QUALITY TAPE I used 3M.

If you want to be fancy color the epoxy. There are powder pigments available. Do not try food coloring.
