Hamilton Standard Propeller blade for Convair CV – 240
The Convair CV-240 was produced from 1947 to 1954 as a possible replacement to the ageing Douglas DC3 Dakota . Boasting a more modern design with cabin pressurisation, the 240 series was well suited to many types of civil and military roles. Although quite scarce these days the “Convairliners” in various forms still continue to fly well into the 21st century
As usual with propellers from Aeroart, this prop has been chemically stripped to remove all the paint and then painstakingly polished on both sides to a mirror finish, it has undergone 18 stages of sanding and five stages of polishing to achieve a perfect flawless finish.
