To seal-up the ends of the foot steps, I used the following plastic end-plugs:
-- Hillman Round Cap Plugs (Black) 3/4"
I found these plugs at LOWE's. Granted, they are not "bullet-shaped" so you may lose 0.000001 knots due to flat-plate drag.
If you want to fill those somewhat unsightly tooling holes on your RV-12's wing tip bows, stab end ribs, and turnover bow, you might want to use the following finishing caps:
-- Hillman Arrow Clips - Nylon (White) #394150-C (for the 3/16" holes)
-- Hillman Arrow Clips - Nylon (White) #394148-A (for the 1/8" holes)
I found these caps at my local ACE Hardware store.
