Cut the dome to its finish edges and tint all the cut edges:

Image

Roll it up tightly. This is best done by making an initial, very narrow fold and gluing it down, then, one by one, about three successive doublings of that fold, letting the glue dry between each doubling, to form a central core big enough to curl the rest of the dome around. The finished dome should look about like this:

Image

Finally, glue the dome into the front hub collar, taking care to align it parallel with the axis of rotation all around. It helps to twirl the prop slowly to detect subtle leaning away from perpendicular and true it up.

Image

When dry, you should have a nice little jewel to hang onto the front of the engine.

That is the best looking prop I have seen for a 3 bladed prop. I'm working with the FG C-47 an would like to apply it to that model but as the model in 1:160 scale and would be very tiny I don't think I have the level of brain power to pull it off. Very nice work Kid, very nice. You Da Man. Thank you very much for sharing. wc
