Default Refinishing

I am refinishing a Flotthorp prop that goes on an A-65 Continental engine.
What finish should be used? and where can I obtain decals. It was made by Univair but as you know they are not in the business anymore.
Any help will be appreciated. jon


Thanks to all for the info...

If it's for display only, the choice of finish is yours. You might get decals through Nostalgic Reflections. If they don't have them they can custom make them.

Default Decals

Most hobby stores carry decal stock that can be printed on by a lazer printer. You can normally apply decals over any finish, but you need to be cautious with any finish applied over the decal. Spray Polyurethane (waterbased) seems pretty foolproof. I think that's what fender used on their headstocks, which is why the front of the headstocks yellowed more than the rest of the neck/headstock finish.
