World War I started an aerial arms race. The first great innovation was an interrupter mechanism fitted so that the machine gun would not fire as the propeller passed in front of it. However it was the development of ever more powerful engines that had the greatest impact on aviation. But how best to capitalize on having more power? One method that was tried was the four bladed propeller.
The four blade wood propeller is a beautifully crafted miniature version of the genuine article. Made of solid wood with an antiqued finish that gives it the look of acquired age.
Propeller measures 47.25" and mounting hardware is provided.
