Etched Brass Props

Postby edkinsel » Thu Dec 13, 2012 11:24 pm

I'm new to submarine modelling. Is there a best way to bend and shape etched brass propellers to a proper look? I'm working in 1/350.

Thanks,

Did you read this months SCR, there's a piece in there showing jig to bend the blades on an etched prop in one hit.

Yes, thanks, but the prop I have is a seven bladed prop. The jig appears to be for a five bladed prop. I'm building the Mikro Mir Thresher.

Copy the design but make one for a five-blader.
