I built the prop in parallel to the other activities. Rather than posting one oicture here, one picture there I am going to put them together so as to have a complete process in a logical arrangement. I will post the pictures in the next few days

Wow Marco, what a superb model, all the lumps and bumps( scoops and radiators) make it look just right. Great photos, Mr Mc Hard would be proud. Kudos

Ciao
Thanks for the kind comments. The model turned out really nice and the customer is very happy. Now, it is just a matter to see if it is going to fly !
As promised, here are some shots taken during the prop build.
I like carving props, expecially for smaller models. Over 6-7" I start feeling guilty for the wood that is wasted so I turn on laminations.
This prop is 8 inches (I hope it is not going to be too much), P/D about 1.2, lamination of two sheets 1mm thick each.
I built a small jig to assemble the two sheets, after boiling them for some time in water

This is the 'blede' the day after.
There some marks on the border left by the rubber but I do not care, the actual blade is smaller and the marks will be cut away.
The blades are finished cutting a triangular slit at the root and glueing a 3mm bamboo dowel that will plug into paper tubes in the spinner

...and I guess it's all, for the time being. I hope to be able to give it a first toss soon, perhaps one of this evenings, if winds calms down and heat gives us a breathe ! Problem is that when the sun goes down, mosquitos wake up....
