Default Buying Props Online in UK/EU

Adding to my long list of woes on my boat i was driving it today, only the third run since repairing it AGAIN and the prop fell off and i have no more, and i am currently in france so cant nip to the local model shop as there isnt one for at least an hour away. anyways question is does anyone know a site where i can buy props and get them sent to france (so UK/EU company). in terms of props its the Graupner subsurface 2 blade one to fit an MHZ Z-drive (the big one not the smaller blackhawk ones). Thanks for the help guys

These guys are in Holland and I'm sure someone can help you out. Power Pete on the forum runs a hobby shop there & is super to deal with.

Peace.

I found a rather good one called Westbourne Model Centre in BOurnemouth UK who will post to pretty much anywhere and seems to have the entire catalogue of parts for almost all manufacturers, seeing as i was short on time i ordered some props from there will let you know how they are

A quick list in no particular order
Prestwich (link above)
[link=http://www.modelmarinesupplies.co.uk/shop/]Model Marine[/link]
[link=http://www.mhz-engines.com]MHZ[/link]
[link=http://www.britnett.net/propshop/]Propshop[/link]
[link=http://www.gasolineracing.se/shop/]Gasoline Racing[/link]
[link=http://www.miniracingteknik.se/]Mini Racing[/link]
[link=http://www.nimrifmodels.co.uk/]Nimrif[/link]
That's what I can think of right now, I know of some others but they do not take CC. I am not sure if Mini Racing will deliver outside Sweden.
I have dealt successfully with Prestwich, MHZ, Propshop and Mini Racing and have heard good things about Model Marine.
This is all assuming that you know the size of prop and are not limited just to the Graupner prop. An Octura, Prather, ABC or Propshop, in metal, of similar size and pitch will probably give you a performance boost.
Sharpened and balanced I know you can get from Prestwich and Nimrif say so on their site.

Hope this helps.............
