It appears to be the same as the spinner on my black Stuka. But I'll have to check the dimensions in case there's some minor difference that I cant see from the photo.

Late model P-40 Warhawk also has a yellow spinner with a 3-blade prop. However, the prop is mounted with a short standard prop screw, and the prop has a recess where the spinner mounts. That is, it does not have the stud nor the cylindrical nut to mount the spinner. I believe many rtf models have a similar prop and spinner mount.

Edit: A couple of pics with my Spitfire engine ("Silver Bee")When I took a closer look it seems that there are also props without the recess, that would require the cylindical nut. The same spinners fit both Huh...

Did some more research and the spinner is Cox item # 8416 and the following aircraft have that part # as spinner (could not verify colour) and may fit more aircraft:

Combat Mustang
Spitfire
Stuka
Stunt Trainer
Crusader
P-40 Warhawk
P-51D Mustang

Good point with the mounting mechanism. Except for Spitfire, the mounting was with a screw. Spitfire is with hub but now we don't know if the spinner is the right one in shape and size. Will have to see if it snaps onto a prop and stays put.

OK, these are definitely meant to be mounted with a hub; which not a problem, as we package them with a hub & stud.

The bigger concern would be if they are identical otherwise to Stuka version, etc because, if we market them that way, they better look the same.

Bernie, I added a couple of photos and some more info to my earlier post.

Regarding the suitability or correctness of these spinners to various different models, I have the two yellow ones and the blue one pictured, and a red one. Their shape and size seem identical to me, I would assume they are all made with same molds, only difference being the colour.

But I am no expert, and all these spinners have come to me separately, none of them with a plane attached Smile I am sure one of our resident true experts will have the knowledge Thumbs Up

Thanks and those are definitely our spinners. This time I shed harder and they snapped onto the prop so, basically, they can be used with a hub and with the correct prop.

The question arose as a yellow Stuka spinner went for over $20 recently on eBay (auction) lol!
