North American T-28 Trojan Propeller Blade - Hamilton Standard DWG no. 6915A-7

 Manufactured in the 1940s by Hamilton Standard, this propeller blade has been taken from a 1950s/60s era North American T-28 Trojan. 

    As a replacement to the T-6 Texan, the T-28A entered service in 1950 and was initially used as an advanced trainer. Later on in the 1960s they were extensively used in the Vietnam war as well as the Secret War in Laos.      

   The T-28 Trojan was the first US fixed wing attack aircraft that was lost in South Vietnam during the Vietnam war.

     As always this propeller has been chemically stripped to remove all the paint and painstakingly polished on both sides to a mirror finish.  It has undergone 18 stages of sanding and 5 stages of polishing to achieve a perfect flawless finish. Mounted on a custom-made base powdercoated in "Pastel Green"
