Default SPINNER FOR 1/4 SCALE CUB

Not sure if 1/4 scale constitutes "giant scale" or not but I will ask my question. I'm building a 1/4 scale J-3 Cub and will be using an OS FT-160 twin-cylinder four-stroke engine. Does anyone know where I might get a scale spinner for this engine? I will probably be using 17X5 wood prop. Below is a picture of a full scale J-3 spinner.

How much will your model weigh? I built a 1/4 scale Bud Nosen kit that came in at 16lbs. Used a 16x8" prop on a OS Gemini 120 2 cylinder 4 stroke sweet sound but crashed it.
Didnt use a spinner as I had to use the OS shaft lock nuts..

I have used the front cone of 2-part glow spinners. The prop washer machined just the right size to fit into the spinner cone, then the central holding screw domed to follow spinner shape. The spinner could be turned on by hand on the adapter nut and stays put very well, so no screw driver slot is needed in the holding screw.

From TruTurn's website: "This HUB can ONLY be used on internally threaded engine drive hubs like Zenoah- Quadra- Us Engines- Cheetah- Air Hobbies." Would have to talk with them to see if OS engines would fit.
