Sunbeam’s Giant Blades


Recommended Posts

Blades are solid, there is a slight hollow in the round bit at the root. Some numbers, mostly indexing marks for setting up in the hub and some other numbers that are meaningless without the right book probably. I’m 99% sure they’re off one of these:

Which makes them old school.

The museum at Omaka airfield should be able to tell you straight away if you send them pics, as they've got a ground-running condition Bristol Freighter in their possession.
