Default 3 bladed giant scale props

I am currently building a Skyshark P40-N 1/5th scale. I'm using a Zenoah G-62 and I need a 22X10 or 24X8 3 blade scale flying prop. I already have a 5.5" aluminum spinner and I don't want to throw away a $100 custom cut spinner or pay another $100 for a 2 blade spinner. Does anyone have any suggestions? I'v found some in carbon fibre but they are not scale in shape. Help

Post some pics, because that is the one that I want. How much was the shipping for it?

Sorry, I don't have any pics available to post right now. I will post some when I'm finished witht the bird. I've done a lot of customizing on it and to be honest, it makes the one featured on Skyshark's website look sad. By the way, my pilot is a modified GI Joe and he not only looks left/right with the rudder, but when he looks to the right I hit a toggle on my transm and he saluted with his right hand.

Here's a pic of one 18" 3 blade. They are NICE props and work well but pricey.

That's what I meant also. I don't have any good pics of the plane right now. At least none that show the plane at its best. I'll post some when I finish the aircraft. Thanks for asking.

Who makes these props? Do you know if they are made in a 22" or 24"? Are these flying props or display props. I need flying props. Also, do you know about what they go for?
Finaly, how can I contact the manufacturer?

I've had good luck with Graupner, Master Airscrew, and Zinger. Joe (Zinger) is a heck of a guy to do business with and custom made me a large 3-blade to fit my 4" Tru-turn spinner. Good luck!

Just have to ask, do you mean a clockwise and counterclockwise spinners???? The Mosquito I have been researching for my 200" plane shows they both spin the same direction.

Just wondering.

Thanks,

DAG

Yes, I don't know why I didn't think of Zinger before! I've been using Zinger props for years but I didn't think of them in terms of multi bladed props. Joe does have all of the sizes I need and as a bonus, I can replace individual blades instead of being forced to purchase a whole new prop if I goof on up. Thanks, I'll try to use my feeble brain a little better next time. By the way, I'm going to attach a photo with this post of my P-40 under construction. It is not finished yet and I will post more pics when it's is more presentable. I have not attempted to attach a photo before, so I hope I did it correctly.

Here is one pic. It will look better when I've finished it. and yes, the N varient of the P-40 did have two pylons and could carry 2 1,000 lb bombs.

How'd you get a G62 into that bird and not cut out the cowl for the carb?

This is an early pic. When it was taken I had not yet installed the G62. I'll send updated pics when the plane is finished.
