The spinners are hard to get. Troy built says they paid for an order over two years ago and haven't gotten it. I ended up getting one from Australia, guy's website is: http://www.tag-model-spinners.com/ma...-spinners.html

I got a two blader for my Jim Pepino P-39. He did the cannon, too, which is removable for AMA sanctioned events. They mount a little differently than what you're used to, so you'll have to plan ahead. I found that mine wobbled a little bit, some grinding on the back of the mounting pad cured that. It was $180 including the shipping.

Thanks for the info Bob. That spinner looks good. I think I might be placing an order from that site.
I haven't called Troybuilt yet, but I would hope if after 2 years they can't get the order shipment that they would at least remove them from their site.

Previously, I think my spinner was a topflite Mustang spinner. It was "good enough", but I'd like to get something more accurate.

Nice detail on your kit build.

Yeah, he's slow, but he's good. I think it took him about 60 days from the time I ordered it. He also painted it for me at no extra charge.

I built mine from Jim Pepino's plans-all my parts were cut on a bandsaw. I'm pretty sure the ESM version was done from those plans, as all the dimensions are the same.

I can second the quality of the spinners from Tag Models. I put a pair of them on my CMP Mosquito, and they are very good! He did mine in about 15 days and they do fit a little different than normal, so you need to make sure to follow his requests for dimensions of prop etc.
