Default Scale Spinner for the ESM LA-7 Lavochkin

I have just bought one of those planes and after trolling through numerous threads on this site and others, I haven't been able to locate a spinner for it.
Does anyone have suggestions where you can find a spinner. Even if you know if anyone who custom makes spinners (preferably in Australia)?

That's a tough item to find...I have an extra cone I could let you have but not the backplate

The spinner for the ESM Stuka is nearly identical if you can find one of those somewhere. Looks like Troy Built is out of stock, maybe one of the other suppliers has one.

I think TBM is supposed to be getting a container at the end of the month. Hopefully there will be a huge collection of parts on it. A lot of us have been waiting a long time to get what we need. You might want to call and get on the backorder list.

Thanks for that. I also noticed Top-Flite have a new FW190 out and the spinner isn't too dissimilar. Not sure of the size though. I might keep looking for someone who can custom make me a spinner.

PM Prekin here on RCU. I believe he made a mold, and produced quite a nice (scale accurate) spinner for his.

or try Roy Vaillincourt of Vailly Aviation, he gets spinners spun up. I got one done for my seafury through him a couple of years back.

I was told of a company in Brisbane that makes scale spinners:
http://www.tag-model-spinners.com

I e-mailed them and received a good constructive response back on the same day
Looking good so far
