The problem with skyshark is that it is only a 2-blade spinner. They used to do a 3-blade, but no more. That, and the lack of a scale paddle prop, are obstacles.
cool I didn't realize they had the canopy as well I have several of there parts for other planes

yea I was bummed when they stopped offering the 3 blade version I have the 2 blade D-9 for my ESM A-8 its a good fit for the larger A version I also have a couple of there smaller A sized spinners for my own Royal scratch build I am doing matter of fact I am heading down to the shop to do some painting now

Merry Christmas was wondering if this one had died, I just picked up my second one of these and I am thinking I will just build it out of the box instead of making a clone like I had originally intended, last year was a disaster for me and I didn't get any RC stuff going, but I am getting back on the horse again clearing the bench of projects 3 currently nearing the finish line, it would be nice to see some projects for this plane being built keep posting guys!

Just FYI, for these smaller models it is possible to 3d print a spinner cone if nothing available will work. Just need a ready made back plate of the correct diameter or get a machinist to make one for you. Won't be the cheapest spinner but offers the opportunity for exact scale.
