Wondering if anyone in your modeling community can make a resin cast of a prop blade for you. The Airfix Hurricane II has a short shot blade in which I made about a dozen and shipped around to folks on this site.


Jeff mention that someone could do a resin cast of the prop for this 1969 Revell p-51b 1:32 prop?

It has 3 1/2 blades, I am new to this can anyone help cast this part or a blade which is better or easier?

....Or in the off chance you have this part in spare parts bin? Doubtful.....I am looking for a 1969 Revell p-51b prop 1:32 scale

Why cast a blade, or even look for another prop ?

It appears that the cuff on the short-shot blade is intact, so all you need is the outer 2/3 of a blade.

All the sprue on that kit is just begging to be made into a blade -- maybe a couple pieces slightly longer than you need melted together, maybe a sprue somewhere is big enough by itself. Then a bit of work with a knife and sanding stick and there's your replacement blade. A bit of clean-up on the cuff, maybe a small hole in the cuff and blade for a brass pin and there it is.

Good news is you have 3 full blades to use as a model and there is enough sprue that you can practice on.
