I saw the recent Avro post, and thought I would show off my own. I will be selling another German prop, but will post that separately today. I acquired both props from Bob Gardner, and am quite pleased with them. They have been sitting on my floor for several years now, and I just bought an apartment and have room for only one on the wall.

The photos of the Avro 504A prop are Bob's. This prop was made by Avro and carries their decals. There is also a rare calibration table painted by hand to record the results of the prop and engine test at the Royal Aircraft Factory in June 1917.

Diameter: 2744 mm
Pitch: 1840 mm
Engine: 80hp Gnome

Enjoy, Mickey

Gorgeous. I always liked the clean look of the A.V. Roe design as well as the elegance of their decal.
