Hi, Haven't built a Bug yet, but here is what I use on my SAL HLG. Cut a piece of 1/32 plywood the thickness of the fin and long enough to go from the boom to the hinge line. Glue to the fin, before shaping, with white glue. After shaping, run some thin CA along both sides to make certain it stays on. Remember, per Drella, you don't want a knife edge on the front of the fin. A narrow piece of .007 or thinner carbon fibre running vertically might also help, depending on the balsa. Regards, Gary
