Default 3-Blade on 3W150 Golden Age Racer

I am going to ARF bash a 95" Laird-Turner LTR-14. The plane will have an old 3W-150 with stock mufflers on her. Scale is a 3-blade prop. It looks like a Biele 28x12x3 or 30x12x3 are pretty much my only options. Does anyone have any idea which of these two props would probably work best for what I'm planning, or if it will even matter. I'm a little worried about that 30x12x3 being too much prop for the 150. Thanks

The biela would be OK I think.
The 30x12x3 as well, if you pike the blades back to 29" diameter.

I ran a DA 150 with a 28 X 12 3 blade prop for a couple years and it was a great match. I would think the same would hold true for your 3W.
