I am currently building a 1/24th scale (49 inch) perkasa and am having difficulty obtaining realistic looking propellers for the torpedos.
Any suggestions please?
Thank you.

Hi Steve
How about getting someone with a 3D printer to make you some? They are small and fiddly but would be relatively easy to make.

I am now recovered so intend to visit the supplier this morning to get some Fastcast. I will then cast the parts you require and hopefully be ready to send in a couple of days.


Live long and prosper

Hi Dave

Glad to hear you are up and running again. These virus things are not pleasant.
Superb idea about the 3D printer. A model boater colleague of mine has access.
I will let you know how I get on and I look forward to the new parts.

Hi Steve, an alternative would be some of the suppliers to the plastic kit boys, the do a lot of detailing parts, might be worth a look
