Decorative Fillets For HPRs
I built one of Giant Leap Rocketry's kits last year (the Vertical Assault). During the construction, the fin area was left a bit messy. There aren't really any fillets and the over-wide fin slots were just filled in with a high-strength Loctite epoxy.
Anyways, the rocket made a (relatively) good flight without paint and with that messy fin epoxy arrangment. Now I'm thinking of giving it a nice coat of paint and I've been trying to find something to make the fin-fillets.
I'm looking for something plastic-y and easy (like, really easy) to sand. Rugged-ness isn't too much of a factor since it doesn't need to add any strength to the fins and I'm thinking I could apply a thin coat of epoxy after it has been shaped to hold it all together.
Does anyone know a product that can do this?
