Thanks Gino,

Congratulations on finding this wonderful prop.

I would be grateful if you could send me photographs. Do you have my email address? Please send the photographs at about 1mb (or bigger). This will enable me to put large photos in my book.

I advise not doing any more to the hub plate. German ones can be extremely difficult to remove. I know of a marvellous Fok D VII prop except for the hub, where it looks as though someone has used a crowbar or perhaps has hammered steel wedges between the wood and metal. Your prop is better left untouched. And I think the metal hub to be genuine. (If it came off easily it wouldn't be genuine!). I have photographs of similar hub plates, although not exactly so, on Garuda props.

With kind regards,
