Brass propellers
Posted by Don Stauffer on Tuesday, August 07, 2018 9:41 AM

In the latest FSM there are two places where people show how to brighten up brass paints for propellers for large warships.  When are kit mfgs going to realize that very few large warships use brass to make propellers.  Brass is not just another name for bronze!

Because the kit manufacturers think it'll look cool on a kit. Sad really....

Can you point me to those places?  Can't seem to find them.

Thanks

Dave,

 

I think Don was making the point of what NOT to do.
