Well, too busy lately so work on this project has stalled for a while.
However, I will finish it.
Here is a shot of the finished propeller.  I has been sprayed with a mixture of Future and Tamiya Flat Base.
I used too much flat base so it is a little "chalky" but it looks nice and weathered that way, eh?

Thanks!
I just "eyeballed" the blade pitch angle...and it is a little too flat.
I think minimum was 22 degrees and I won't miss it on the next kit I build!

I don't know about the angle, Vince, but everything about the prop and spinner look good to me!

Here I have used my drill press to create holes for the nice brass gun barrels from Master:



Perhaps more important that the holes were the backstops that need to be there or else you lose your parts later at installation!
