Hasegawa 1/32 109's question:

The Hasegawa F and G kits have different spinners and props.  Comparing the two, I can see a slight shape difference.

Here's the F spinner which is on a dedicated sprue:

And here it is compared to the G-6 one. The F spinner is on the right.

The F spinner was re-done with that kit, and is the more accurate of the two. The shape and size is a better representation; as are the prop openings, which pinch slightly at the base.

In that case you should be able to point out the "inaccuracy"?

If it is just a feeling, ignore it then, perhaps it's based on earlier reviews. When the Hasegawa kit was first released the spinner was the weak point. If they have retooled it with the F, then what's the problem?

And there is always the aftermarket.

Unfortunately parabola's and other advanced math are beyond me....  but I can't say that this:

Looks like this:

Obviously, such pieces were made on and English wheel, or with a metal shaping power hammer.  so there may have been variations.
