Default Heine replica

I'm a novice at propeller making but thought that I would show a few photos of my 3rd under way.

Each of these has been an airworthy copy of an original Heine prop for the high compression Daimler-Mercedes DIIIau motor as used in the Fokker D VII. While there are drawings around for a D VII prop made by Axial, apparently this propeller is preferred by 2 out of 3 Mercedes engine D VII owners.

The prop is 2.8m in length (110 inches) with a pitch of 2.1m.

The first propeller was all mahogany in 8 laminations as is my original. The current one has (back to front) 4 layers of mahogany, ash, mahogany and two layers of ash.
