    Hi everybody, could you help me to find prop's aircraft, i don't know it's warbird.

    Blades are 110 cms and number is 1972-4 N°F272 B
    (1972 isn't date?)

    Thanks.

    Sure looks to be WWII, not sure which type yet.
    Where was it found?

    Looks like it 'could' be a VDM of some type - if it didn't have the pointy tip, I would have said possibly Bf 110 or Fw 190A. Will check those numbers.

    110 cm blade length, it is much to small for Bf110 or Fw190.

    The origin is north of France, near Amiens.

    Looks a similar shape to a De Havilland prop, similar to the Spitfire MkI and II, although the hubs were not exposed on the Spit prop.

    110cm is quite small. Wondering if its a sport plane.

    Ah, didn't notice the comment on length under the ad. Yep, that is quite small.

    I didn't spot that either. Could be something like a DH Dove, or a smaller aircraft.

    Aren't the "rings" on the backing plate are conductors for electric anti-icing? If so I don't think this is a WW2 era prop.

    Another reason to suggest 1972 is the date of manufacture.

    Thats what I was thinking, but there don't seem to be any anti-ice heating pads on the blades.

    Maxbren, can you post some pictures of the blade tips, and any numbers off the hub?
