I was curious about that. I didn't see any identifying stamps on the prop at the SD museum so that's why I assume it is a replica. I'm also assuming that Integral must have made a whole line of props with varying design specifics to suit different engines -- but perhaps kept a kind of "signature style" such as the straight trailing edge.

On the Integral propeller I modeled, the striations in the wood layers were more curved on the forward face. However on the museum prop the striations where more or less straight (as on the back side of my prop). This obviouisly shows that the surfaces were carved differently.

BTW, the museum staff told me that the difference between a replica and a reproduction is that officially to be a "reproduction" there has to be at least one builder with experience working on the original aircraft.
