I admire how your color scheme accents every cooling fin detail!

I never enjoyed algebra, but geometry made sense to me. Especially on the pool table.

What is amazing is that all the parts lined up when I assembled it. Thanks to Nile Smith for teaching me Geometery-:)

I think that I'm done with this thing. Probably about 60 hours invested in it now.

Gary...in case you missed this

Ray - thanks. That prop looks just like this guy's prop - stainless steel laser welded http://i-am-modelist.com/2014/04/21/macchi-m-c-72/

Richard: Yes, Reynolds Wrap. Used some old Krasel foil adhesive that's been in my stash for 20(+) years. Covered just like a wing; bottom side first, trimmed then cover the top. I have found that using a piece of soft balsa is the best way to burnish down the foil.

Love those hexagons rayl - amazing detail.

A chrome prop!! Is that Reynold's wrap kitchen tin foil? What glue did you use? Two pieces of foil for each blade - one upper and one lower?
jgood, Comment for image # 3752315 Dec 16 12:37
That's amazing!

Yowza!

Did you mold the hub? The blades look like factory.

WIP: the prop hub.

Basswood blades covered with Reynolds foil. [Four coats of dope followed by numerous coats of rattle-can sandable primer. Sanded them down with 600 grit beteween coats to get the smooth surface that the foil demands.]

I resized a picture of the Hamilton Standard prop and used copies to make templates for the blades.
