Default Four bladed electric prop needed.

Hey all. I am building an old Ryan Dark Shark C/L kit into an electric full r/c aircraft. For aesthetic reasons (real plane has a huge four bladed turboprop), I am trying to find a four bladed propeller for a size 480 motor. I have been unable to find anything that might suit my needs. I am unsure of the exact motor size as it is still under construction and as a C/L kit, weight was not much of a factor. Any help with where to look would be appreciated. I have been told various ways of making one out of two 2-bladed props, but seeing as how this kit is 46 years old, I want to leave as little to chance as possible. Thanks.
