This might help anyone building this kit, or a kit with this type of fins.

I was worried about getting fingerprints on the fins, so I added little “handles” to each half. I did this by forming little “Ts” with masking tape. The top of the “T” getting stuck to the fin surface, and the body of the “T” formed glue-side to glue-side of the tape, and standing out from the fin surface. Made it very easy to apply CA then pick up each fin half and press them together.
