This is a three-page kit for a 1/48 scale vintage sabre-shaped prop. The kit contains parts for two versions, one of them slightly thicker. Both are suitable for WWI and other vintage aircraft. This particular prop is appropriate for a Sopwith Camel or similar.

Original vintage props of this kind were laminated from either nine or seven layers, judging from photos and drawings. The scale prop is built up of alternating layers of two shades of wood-coloured paper. For the seven-layered version there is 14 layer parts, and for the nine-layered 18 layer parts. The nine-layered version therefore is slightly thicker. Judge from photos which version suits your aircraft best.

Each of the layer parts consists of a prop part and a rectangular jig. The jig is just what's left when the prop is cut out from the rectangular jig part of a layer. Jigs and prop parts are glued in order to form a stack, and at the end of the build the jig parts are peeled away.

Parts are printed at the top of two separate sheets, so you can cut off the rest of the sheets and use them for other things.
