    I am working making a lamp that would be 1 blade of a prop from a ww2 plane. I was hoping for a B17, but I'll take whatever I can get at the moment. I'm trying to find cross sectional plans of these props, or at least their construction documents. Does anyone know where I could find this information? I will then model the prop in 3D then use my cnc machine to carve it out.

    Much appreciated!

    Not sure about such drawings but another option might be to get a 3D laser scan of a real blade if you have access to one. The technology is becoming fairly common and you might find a company that could do it for a reasonable price.
