1/72 Grumman S-2 Tracker props

Recommended Posts

Hi team,

A friend gave me a couple of his Dad’s old kits and one of them was an unopened Idea 1/72 Tracker. I’m having a lot of fun with it but the propellers are just awful:

Are there any types which could donate props? Are the Hasegawa S-2 ones actually right? I was going to use a set from my B-26K but they’re rather different.

 

All advice greatly appreciated, and then I’ll be off to the Swap Shop to beg/borrow!

the Hasegawa ones are usable, are yours the HobbyCraft re-pop ?

@Snowbird3a that's gorgeous! Mine's an Idea, pre-Hobbycraft! For the most part it's a nice kit but the props, as you can see, are just awful.

You might try Joe's Models and see if he still has any of the Aeroclub white metal props in stock. You need P079. I've got a set of these, and they're quite good. I'd show a pic or 2, but they're in storage right now.

Yeah, the hubs on the Hasegawa kit props are too small.  Those white metal props are the way to go if you can find a set.

Thanks, those are perfect! Unfortunately I’m broke, hopefully they’ll be in stock when I’m working again or have some spare change. Thanks again for the heads-up!
