Submarines, etc.

if you have your heart set on brass props from rivabo or raboesch, these are much more accurate for the type VII:

the first two on the page, 20mm, "D" type:

http://cornwallmodelboats.co.uk/acatalog/R162-M2.html

you will need one of each RH and LH rotation.


the listing on ebay is the "A" type, which do not have the pointed "bullet" hub, and 25mm is too large for a 1:72 scale u-boat, and the m4 shaft is gigantic for a 1:72 scale type VII.

"D" type, 20mm, with an m2 shaft is much more appropriate.

The blade area on the Type D prop looks too big compared to the Type A prop.

I believe I saw some 20mm Type A with M2 tthreads.
Just a matter of turning the dunce cap to a point.

it appears that engel only allows paypal payments now for overseas orders, and does not list shipping charges until you have posted an order.

wrong.

i will never place an order with any website if i do not have exact pricing on shipping prior to placing that order. there is no way i would EVER place an order not knowing how or how much shipping is going to be. I would hate to be in a position where i have $10 worth of parts, and $30 worth of shipping.

I understand that one, when I order from McMaster-Carr, it is the same thing - I do not know the final amount. I don't like it, but I like them as a company. I do know Caswell does have the props, check this out:

Hope this helps.

Engel shipping


So far, the shipping cost for both of my Lafayette and Akula from them has been on an average from 180 to 230 dollars. However, he ships it really fast and secured. Both of mine shows up at the door in 4 days from the moment it was shipped. Yes, the charge is quite high, but in this hobby, as long as it arrives in one piece and fast, I can overlook it a little.
