It's the one you emailed us under lol! All I did was click on "reply". Admittedly don't counter-check profiles, as all communications go to email inbox on our devices, from which we then reply.

Those pins (upper-right) look to be "split-pins".. which are usually used to achieve a press-fit for retention.

Below; the 2-blade (bottom-2nd from the right) looks to have a similar hub-design to the two props that came with my "Cox" Cosmic-Wind RTF.



The spinner clamps (snaps) onto the prop. Mine are "marked" 5 x 2 and 5 x 4 on the tab.. but have no Cox or Thimble-Drome markings on them. I'm wondering if my props were sourced from Testors by Cox.. when they acquired the Cosmic-Wind molds from Testors?

Were there any Testors spinners in that lot, designed to fit that two-blade prop Bernie? My spinner broke when my Rare-Bear's engine threw the prop when it backfired on a flight-attempt.





Spinner lined-up..



Spinner "snapped-on"..



The "tabs" look slightly different on mine.. but I'd be interested in a few of those props.. if you had the spinners to fit.. or replacement spinners that would fit "my" props.

The spinners we received are different and don't have the "tabs"

Allrighty then! That didn't take too long. I got my needle valves,spinners and props a few days back. I've got one old beater engine with a spray bar with a broken NV stuck inside. I'm gonna see how easy it is to press out the old and insert the new with the parts from Bernie. Hey, I also bought the correct crank from PeterParisi on eBay, so maybe I'll have two more "runners" when I get round toit

The prop on the top upper right which I believe states 4001. Is this a prop that's available for sale? I believe that's the prop on my Testors Fly Em Zero. I have 2 Zero planes which are both in flyable condition but the prop even though sanded has some pretty bad dings and scrapes. They fly terrible but I do enjoy them.

Ken.
I can't say if the 4001 suits the Zero, but it is definitely the same as my Fly'em P-40. Of the 3 shown, two have the spinner mount lugs. Depends on your spinner I guess.

Bernie,
I wanted to give a public Thank You to You and Teresa for the very fast shipment of the Testors parts I had ordered a couple of weeks ago. The shipment only took a few days and I think that Customs on both sides must have been in a good mood !!
I left feedback on your system with Teresa at the time.
Also, if it helps, as I was going thru my Testors spare parts, I found that I still have a receipt from Henry Werner/Virginia Hobby Sports, where I had bought Testors 4001 and Testors 4003 three blade props 8 or 9 years ago.
He listed the 4001 for Testors RTF P-40 and Zero, and 4003 for Testors RTF Me-109. He's long since retired and moved to AZ I think but he had it all at one time.
Maybe it helps ID the props.

Thanks Again,
Steve...

Steve, Henry and his brother were aces. They had it all and they were very knowledgeable. I helped Henry a few times at Brodak's. He built a twin of the Howard Hughes XF-11 that was just too cool. Virginia Hobbysport shop was a one stop shop no doubt. I hope he's doing well and enjoying retirement. Ken

Here's Henry with his profile P-38.  I dealt with him quite a bit before retirement.  Got me started on Gilberts.  I second Ken's thoughts.  Great guy.
