FWIW... I did a search on the photo that I posted and it was listed as a prop from a 190A at the National Technical Museum in Prague.  I could find no other information on it.  And also... the photo Mike posted of the D-9 seems to indicate some sort of "something" along the leading edges of the two visible prop blades, if my eyes are not deceiving me.  The brownish color could be rusted metal... just saying.

I'm not sure that was a metal reinforcement. Also not sure it was on all D-9s

John, Mike , thank you for the photos!

 

is there any chance that the reinforcement could be doped linen like many propellers during ww1?

 

or i could always use the metal one ..

Hey Spyros, the VS111-9 blades were laminated wood (duh) covered in an oil cloth material and painted RLM70.

I've also read (somewhere) that 'some' late D9s were paint black or dark blue.

Most photos of wartime D9s show nothing on the leading edge of the blade. Jerry Crandall's books say nothing

about the leading edge so I wouldn't assume there was anything metal on the blades.

Your progress is looking quite nice.

I also checked JaPo's Dora books and they didn't mention anything about the prop blade materials other than they were wood.  There were a couple of photos of broken props that didn't show any indication of metal reinforcement so I am now in agreement with Mike.  I guess I jumped to conclusions when I saw the photo that I posted and assumed that the strip on the leading edge was metal.
