Default Construction

I am really struggling on the construction of these. I do them off mandrel boro, but I have a hell of a time getting the fins evenly placed. I normally put a hot gob of glass on the side, mush it and then pull it out with a glass rod to a fin shape. Yesterday I tried the technique of making th fins first and then adding them later. I think I left too much glass to join them on, since there was quite a bit of finessing to get the shape back to acceptable. So what is your technique in adding fins?
