    what you want to determine is the pitch of the prop......the twist. the leading edge of the prop is thicker than the trailing edge......just like a wing. as L.H. said the root of the prop is thicker that the tip.

  9. What have you received today?

    the admiral was browsing 'round some of the local yard sales on her phone today, and she saw that someone was offering a Revell 1:96 Constitution for $15.00. I asked if they were crazy, so she showed it to me. I {of course} flipped! she contacted the person and asked about it........after finding out that .....yes, this ain't no typo.........she was told that they had a couple of other models for $5.00 each. making the deal of the century, we met the lady at a local bowling alley. I have wanted a Revell Connie to accompany the United States, once I got back to working on her........I want to scratch built the galley parts for the United States, since the part are omitted. now I have the parts to get the proper measurements so....I got the Connie, and two plane kits I haven't had the chance to look for the mold date on the Connie yet.......from what the lady told me, it sounds like the second production. I'll be tickled to find that the date is 1959........second production was 1975. the plane kits are from the mid to late 90's.
