To elaborate: If a full core can be made, either by cnc routing or hand sanding, then the tail is made by putting skins an spars into the mold (epoxy also), joining the mold around the core and applying pressure. Tom Siler has some great video of making tails in molds on the hlg forum. Well worth watching.

Tails can also be made by forming foam in each half and trimming to the surface of the mold. If the skins weren't applied to each side, then the rest of the process could be similar to the above process. I'd guess that applying the skin to each half core , trimming and then joining the halves might work better, but just don't know.
