LF 1/72 aeroclub five bladed propeller for Spitfire
« on: January 30, 2021, 01:26:04 am »
As the lid says, looking for a 1/72 aeroclub five bladed propeller.  Prefer one or more, if possible.  Am willing to pay postage downunder.

Does it have to be the Aeroclub prop? https://www.scalemates.com/kits/aeroclub-p037-5-blade-griffon-spitfire-propeller-r-h--154958

Others have been produced as seperate items over the years, such as https://www.scalemates.com/kits/resin-art-7311-spitfire-mkxiv-simple-set--323686
https://www.scalemates.com/kits/freightdog-models-spitfire-mk-24-conversion-set--187674
and https://www.scalemates.com/kits/resin-art-7311-spitfire-mkxiv-simple-set--323686

I may have a Fuimi prop or something else available but I would have to check, Lee may be able to help as well

The plus point about the Aeroclub props was they were made of metal, and as strong as that implies.  :thumbsup:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

No longer necessary.  I have found two five bladed Spitfire propellers from another source.
