    That’s something they screwed up on when they built this Franklin Mint model of mine. If you can spread the photo so it pops up bigger, when they moulded the two kingfishers on the catapults, you will see that they gave them four propeller blades instead of two. I only ever saw pictures of them with two blades. (Or you might say one complete)

    As the old adage goes.
    It's a feature not a bug.

    They have 4 propeller blades because they are Curtiss SC-1 Seahawks.
