    hiya its my first time on here,
    i used to be quite into planes when i was younger, (model aircraft, airfix kits, flight simulators etc, plus i love ww2 planes... DH.98 Mosquito being my favourite

    anyway recently i saw this in a skip and just had to resque it but my question is does any of you guys know from what plane this belongs too?

    cheers in advance, barry

    Possibly from a Viscount, or Argosy, but can't be certain.

    With the part number we can likely look up the propeller and maybe deduce the airplane. Or at least narrow the models down.

    I'm just taking a guess here from some of the books I have it has about the same shape as the prop cones used on the Lockheed Constalations but this is just a guess. And it may be off of a DC-6. I see that it is marked with a 3 and am assuming that it is the third cone off the third engine. :dontknow:
