Are there any details available for the prop and rubber used on this lovely model?

Seeing the query regarding the prop size on the Pilatus PC-9, I realised examination of the accompanying photos indicate the prop diameter to be approx 8 inches, by comparing wingspan with the prop size. Cheers,

Any chance of submitting more of your dad's Andercraft masterpieces for posterity, Garth? His aeromodelling skill was indeed exceptional and it would be a fitting tribute to let his creations live on being built by others equally passionate. His designs are perfect for converting to modern electric UM machines.

* Credit field
The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.
This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
