I just had an Air Force retiree who is a contractor now inform me that the P-47 had a 4-bladed prop, not three.

I looked it up at the Air and Space Museum. He's right.

I had been using q-tips for the Jugs and Corsairs. I like the Dell prop shafts, though, and may give them a whack.

Of course, most of my props are clear plastic presentation covers, which look like spinning props. I like to hang my birds from ceilings!

Hi, just got the p-47 and found that it's only got three blades, I also noticed that the front face of the copit canopy is flat white and not textured like the sides, also still no side insignia. I can fix the prop as I’m going to buy a bearcat model so I’ll grab it from that model, the canopy I can also texture, but I have no idea about the side insignia or what goes there, Anyway just thought let you know.

there is a US insignia--you can see the aft bar in the tail checkerboarding. Forward of that--above the wing root, aft, there was originally the number '710', approx 5/8 inch tall.

For my jug I used Dell's prop from the p-51, but had to make a hub

I haven't really looked closely at the prop hub for the P-47, but would the prop hub from John Dell's B-24 work? I've used on many other models and it looks nice.

That's a great idea. I think it would work well :)

Hi, I just made from the P-47 3x blade prop and converted it to 4x blade prop, I'll pass it up to chip ASAP.
