first, i adressed the prop blades. i know there are Harolds wonderful resin replacements, but funds are tight at the moment, so i will do some old-fashionned scratchbuilding

the trumpy blades are too skinny


so i made a strategic cut down the middle


and inserted a sheet wedge


some putty


and after some sanding, primer and black, voilá
