Hello fellow modellers,
I wonder if any of you could help. I am about to start 'muddling' a 1/72 Revell Airco DH2 of 29 Sqn circa November 1916. It is going to be a challenge but, as the Eduard version is either unavailable or going for silly money on that well-known auction site, it is all I have. The Revell model, notwithstanding the many shortcomings, is supplied with a 2-blade airscrew, whereas the 'Front-line' DH2's of mid-late '16 had been fitted with the 4-blade airscrew.
I guess you will know my question: does anyone have a spare, surplus etc 4-bladed prop suitable for the DH2? Obviously an Eduard DH2 prop would be fantastic but a 4 blade prop from a SE5a is very close in diameter and that of a BE2c could be shortened (as a guide the prop diameter is approx. 34mm in diameter).

Many thanks if you have a 'spares box' that might throw up such an item.

For those of you who frequent the Airfix 'sister forum', I apologise for cutting and pasting the exact same request - but at the speed I type .........
