mine is a Tru turn standard spinner...pretty close to scale look

Any 5" spinner that's not pointy will look OK. The Tru-Turn Spitfire cut looks actually pretty close. I think they only make it in 5 1/2" though. My best scale one is 5 1/4, but I think 5 1/2 would look good. Not Cheap at $200.

Now that you mention it Todd I may have bought the spitfire spinner. A quick comparison between the spit and the std spinners from Tru turn will reveal cause it will be the shorter of the two

Thanks, that Tru Turn Spitfire spinner does look good. I saw a smaller Spitfire spinner from Top RC that looked right but too small. 5 1/2" is good size too but I'll probably be cutting the cowling back a bit then for scale fidelity and cooling. They are pricey though! And they are selling a part for using it with the Moki which will add even more. Unless I can find someone to machine a transition from 4mm to the Tru Turn bolt size. I think its 10/32. I like that the Tru Turn blade cutouts can be done for my prop no extra charge, it is a German SEP prop, wood, with a very wide blade. N8622t your cowl/spinner looks terrific!

just a tip on the cowl opening...before you cut at your mark, glue in your reinforcement support because the cowl turns into a bowl of jello after cutting the nose ring out. Itíll save you a lot of work
