Default My Real Hurricane Propeller.

This is from a Mk II Hurricane. Relic condition but a beauty to behold!

(Note the Cliffs of Dover box alongside).

Best Regards,
MB_Avro

That's fascinating Avro. Cool to see in such detail how it was made too. Is there a story behind the propellor and the plane/s it might have been used on?

No history I'm in the process of preserving it. It obviously can't be restored to it's original condition.

It was found in a barn some time ago.

Well, with no known history, the sky (and your imagination) is the limit in terms of the service the prop might have seen.

Congrats on the nice relic anyway, is good to know it's ended up with someone who can appreciate it.

Do you know what kind of wood its made from Avro? and whats the outer covering, some sort of shellac material?

Intriguing thing to have. Since its got some serial numbers on it, is it possible that there's some history for it to be found in some dingy basement in the Public Records Office? Seems unlikely but you never know.

Unfortunately, the numbers don't help with any history. They are similar to model numbers.

It was made from some form of hardwood. (WW1 props were mahogany). The process involved pressed laminations. The covering was some sort of nitro cellulose. It's highly combustible and it's not advised to apply a naked flame!
