None of the P-51 blade is hidden in the spinner. The blade foil (cuff) starts at the spinners edge. Perhaps someone who has both aircraft can post a picture of the individual blades side by side for comparison.

Well I was just thinking that because the F4U doesn't have a spinner cone, perhaps it has more effective blade area (longer foil length) than the P-51. After all they both have a 17"diameter propeller.

I may stand corrected here (I don't have my reading glasses on ) but I think the key words are *foil length*

Have a look at the attached pics, not real clear (pilfered from HobbyParadise site) but looks to me the blade differences between P51 & F4U are significantly different...
