How to end the turtle deck

Post by PoconoJohn »

Just wondering how you ended your turtle deck. I'm using foam board to get the basic set up. I now have the boards in place still using foam supports. Keep them all straight? Bunch them together?

Thank you,

John C

Earl, that's beautiful work, and an elegant way to fair the turtledeck into the tail feathers!
