Anyone know a source for 3 inch plastic spinners?

I'm looking for a source for 3.5 inch "all plastic" spinners. I have a 1/7th scale mustang and I want a black spinner, but need a 3.5 inch (89 mm) one for the cowl to look right. The problem is that I can only find spinners designed primarily for gas operation at this size (at least locally). They are either a plastic or nylon fiber reinforced cone with a thick aluminum backplate. These are heavier than I care for, and I don't need that with electric (no power stroke to deal with) and I don't need "flywheel effect."

Anyone know a source (or even if they might exist) for large (above 3 inches) plastic spinners, please post a link or contact info.

Thanks!

Hi Cash

Radio-Active spinners are distributed to most UK model shops and have a fairly wide range of large plastic spinners- including a rather evilly extended nice fighter-ish one at about 3.5 inch diameter that I wish I could get in a smaller size.

A quick google search revealed

as a supplier - but their website unfortunately has no pictures of the spinners themselves apparently.

The Flair website does however have some pictures - including their 3.5" spinner at
http://www.flairproducts.co.uk/

Carl Goldberg used to do nice plastic spinners with plastic backplates in moderate sizes - at least 2.5" if not bigger so they are worth a look as well.

Good luck with the spinner hunt

cheers

Brian
