This 3D-printed plastic spinner is the correct scale shape and size for the Rabid Models 48″ UHU (Eagle Owl) and JU-88, and the 50″ J1N1 Gekko planes. This spinner is designed specifically for the 9×7 3-bladed propeller that we sell. The spinner’s backplate is installed behind the propeller with a prop adapter (available separately), then the spinner cone snaps on – so no other hardware is needed.
This spinner is nearly identical in size to the rubber GWS spinner seen in the picture below, which is no longer available.
The 3D-printed product is not perfectly smooth due to the nature of the printing process, but it can be sanded smooth and it can also be painted. The backplate has a centering hole which needs to be drilled out to match your application.
This item is sold as a set of 2 spinners (2 cones and 2 backplates). You will need two propellers and two prop adapters, these are NOT included but are available separately from Rabid Models.
There are two sizes of this spinner available to match the two sizes of two kits. This one is the larger one.
This picture shows the original GWS rubber spinner but the 3D version is the same shape and size, This picture of the He-219 installation shows what can be done with paint, a sharpie, and a simple 1L soda bottle to make a realistic cowling.
