Administrators Clunkmeister Posted May 7, 2021 Administrators Share Posted May 7, 2021 And what a package it was! In certain niche areas of our hobby, there are names that are spoken with almost mythical reverence. Aviattic’s Richard Andrews is one, and another one is a gentleman named Alexey Belov WW1 and golden age aircraft lovers like myself look at him as an almost mythical figure, the force behind what we know as Proper Plane. Alexey IS Proper Plane, a small aftermarket supplier of some of the most unique, niche, and singular products on the market today: laminated, hand carved and finished wooden propellers for early aircraft. These propellers are absolutely some of the most amazing works of art I’ve ever seen. Ever. There have been plenty of reviews here on LSM and other places on Proper Plane, and until now, with the possible exception of the IBG PZL P.11c, I have not only never been so ready for a product I’ve heard all about, the quality of the product actually took my breath away when I first saw it Pictures will follow over the weekend, but if you’ve never seen these props and manifolds, be prepared to have your mind blown. No pictures do these things justice. None. Whatever these guys are doing in Kyiv, if most definitely involves a time machine and a shrinking machine. This work is breathtaking to see. I give you a few pictures to look at, and I’ll show you some resin wheels a d woodgrain this weekend. 14 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
