In this post I will detail the idea of making the propeller look more realistic. The propeller I have modified to date {P40, P47 & P51) are in the TayMaking Detail Plans a four blade propeller, w hard square edges.  Actual propellers are sloped to create thrust . The following steps I use to create a bladed propeller.
1. Begin with the propeller in the plan (Pic 1 & 2)
2. Using a dremmel tool with a sanding barrel round from one edge down across the trailing edge to its rear (Pic 3)
3. Do th opposite to the rear face (Pic 4). This concludes a the sculpting of a single prop blade, repeat for blades 2 thru 4. Finished prop (Pic 5).
4. Hand sand all eight edges. Apply paint, finish, add to plane fuselage.
