Trying to find a very specific spinner ...

I'm building a AW609 and need a spinner to closely match the full scale aircraft. It has a rounded look like this

I need one that is about 2" in diameter...

Any help will be much appreciated.

Thanks!

Looks like a Fw190, Me109, Zero shape.

I tried this Google Images search -- https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=RC...190+Me109+Zero

The search doesn't help much, may be worth asking in some of the Fw190, Me109, Zero ARF/RTF threads what size the spinner is, as although they are often shown in the spares list, they don't quote the diameter.

Have a look in this forum for the warbird models and possible spinners --

Electric Warbirds forum

Also the ---

VTOLs forum

will be well worth a look, as a few Bell V22 Ospreys have been built, (couldn't find any AW609 models).

Look up one of the 3D printer suppliers. Some of them can help with a scratch project.

Been there.. Too many times.
Few Premade spinners ever suit/resemble what I need.
Turn a Plug...
then either Vacuform a Styrene sheet over it
Or Shrink a water bottle onto it (Oven at ~300 ) Both give surprisingly decent result.
Mounting it Is the skill testing question.. but No biggie.
G'luck
