You freed this bird from ingame slot/nation prison to it's own Slot.
How cool is that.  :)

@ LameHawk,
Yeah,...  :(
to be precise it's long ago I did the research, don't remember all, it's 4 up to 5 years since I was
working at this.



showing early british Martlets II's before delivery...
note different hubbed versions of Hamiltons, at a time USN
Wildcats 99% went unhubbed.
This Prop Type looks similar to that used at P-36s.
There also hubbed caps and unhubbed Props existed.


Look how large the IV's hub cap is referenced to a head, the diameter of blades
is questionable, but best I could find. I couldn't find a smaller working of this type.
Although it must be shrinked in 3-D software at parts of blades which I can't.
The Mk.IVs prop looks similar to that of the Hellcat.



USN FM-2s appeared late in war with the hubbed type the Brits went earlier...

Early USN elongated hubbed are very rare in pics, but exists.
