    Hi guys ! :)

    Sorry I did not post for a while on the forum !
    ( Ps : to moderators, quick search on the forum, is not working on any computer I am connecting from).

    Okay so here is my (big classical) question for you as my "late war" (as I suppose) german propeller blade documentation is not so complete ( seems hard to get complete ETL on this subject.).

    I just got a wooden propeller blade (will post pictures asap ) that I suspect to be from a Ju188 ; marking is 9-41227-16 but as far as I know Ju188 series were in the 9-41211-15, 9-41211-16, 9-41211-17 and 941211-18 range....

    Does any one of you can help me with the correct corresponding aircraft for this blade ?
    If not Ju188, I'll look up for Ju87 or late war He111, what do you guys think ?

    Thank you for your help ( as always :) )

    Hi guys !
    Sorry I couldn't post for a while !

    So about the propeller blade.
    I manage to find out that this one goes on the VS11 propeller hub ; and according to pictures I found could go both on Ju87 or Ju88.
    The closest aircraft I found according to pictures was a Ju88G6 captured by US Troops.
    ( I do not own credits of the picture, found it in a French magasine about the nachjag ).

    Can anyone of you confirm the matching numbers between the Ju88 and the propeller blade ?
    Might be tricky as I also read that the junker propeller blades were assigned by production numbers not a proper ref ; can anyone confirm this info ?

    Anyway this is a great find ; so here are the pictures I wanted to share with you.
    If you look closely you will notice a little scratch on the top but this is really small.
