P-38 Spinners with MAS CR props

I have been reading this thread quite closely I have a V2 P-38 that I am putting together. I bought the MAS CR Props. Was wondering if you used different spinners or just filed down the stock spinners to fit the props. Thanks Larry

I used a Dremel and a fine file on mine to fit the MAS. Just go slow - test fit - grind - repeat.

I used dremel tool to sand the backplate. Then, added 5x11x4 plastic bushings behind the prop washer.

Well my V1 sans landing gear belly lander retrofitted with B-25 motors and B-25 counter rotating props and reduced wing dihedral flies great....although flight times are now reduced to around 5 minutes.....belly landings have proven to be hard on the plane as the tail feather bottom sections have been severed off twice now.....I guess a taller grass landing zone is better fitting for belly landings....the props suffer no damages at all.
