    Refer to my first post -- it shows how to lay-out the propeller blade blank.

    I am pouring over your postings. I think I will begin hacking away. Post and ask more questions.

    @Bart - Less than you. No one is more hated than you (although I have had my moments)! LOL
    If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.

        Still a coward on the prop.
        Built an upgrade for the walrus. The Walrus' got an upgrade in real life, it was a diffuser for the exhaust. The model as sold was a prior version. This began as a paper model pattern and I cut it out of plastic. and am at this point. I have to do several landings and fillings to go.

          Geeeez Tom. That looks like you drilled 400 tiny holes in that thing?

            There is a story to that. I knew I could not drill accurately enough to make it neat. Earlier, I was asking about photo-etching because of these holes. When I was transferring the pattern onto the brass, it was not looking great. So, I played with using a 3D printer just for the hole pattern area. It came out ok, but still ran a drill bit by hand to clean up the holes. The 3D pieces were installed like etched brass.
            A little more fixing, then I will mold this up. Why? Because I know myself. I will wack this sail and destroy this and not have a backup. I need a backup!
