Being a newbie to model boat making and having made a VERY slow start trying to read between the lines of given build instructions with my Calderwood Clyde Puffer kit 🤔, I'm realising just how uniformed i am in regards to skill requirements, experience and model engineering skills.
I'm struggling to get my head around scale of parts. I want to replace the white metal Prop provided with the kit for a brass alternative.
Having had a look on line, i have found similar 3 bladed props, but i am unclear what it means by left / right threaded, I'm guessing for screwing on to the prop shaft and nothing to do with the motor? and I'm unsure how to measure the prop to ensure i get the right size for the scale of the model. I've tried measuring across the blades but that doesn't appear to correlate to what I have found in ads, Any advice / words of wisdom would be Very much appreciated. Thank you in anticipation..
