Welcome to the Prop Shop web site.
A SERIOUS FIRE ON 11 APRIL SEVERELY DAMAGED OUR PRODUCTION CAPABILITY, SO WE HAVE TEMPORARILY DISABLED OUR SHOPPING CART. WE ARE PURSUING AN INSURANCE CLAIM WHICH SHOULD ALLOW US TO BEGIN MANUFACTURING AGAIN AND GOOD PROGRESS IS BEING MADE TOWARD ACHEIVING THIS.
WE ARE SORRY THIS HAS TAKEN SO LONG TO RESOLVE BUT HOPE YOU WILL APPRECIATE THAT THE SPEED OF PROGRESS IS BEYOND OUR CONTROL. PLEASE KEEP CHECKING THIS WEBSITE FOR UPDATES.

Welcome to the Prop Shop web site where you will find a large selection of model boat propellers to suit your needs.
If you require details of the blade diameter, pitch or default thread sizes for our propellers, please click on "Documents and Downloads" in the bar above.
AS WE SUPPLY AROUND 1,000 DIFFERENT VARIATIONS OF PROPELLER MOST ARE MADE TO ORDER. CURRENT LEAD TIME FOR NON-STOCK ITEMS IS 4-6 WEEKS.
Our propeller ranges fall into one of two types: SCALE PROPS which comprise the Kort Nozzle, Modern Submarine, Modern CP, Steam, Standard , Vintage Scale Fine Pitch and WW2 ranges. SPEED PROPS which comprise Cleaver, Fast Electric, Fast Scale, General Purpose, Multi-Racing and Tethered Hydro ranges.
Most propellers are made to order, however we do keep a selection of popular scale props in metric threads, and speed props in metric threads or imperial bore dog drive. Special shaft sizes or BA/UNF/UNC threads can still be supplied if required. All of our propellers are supplied sharpened and balanced as standard.
The popular propellers and accessories that we have in stock can usually be shipped out in a matter of days. However, because most propellers and accessories are hand made to order, delivery is typically 4 - 6 weeks from date of order.
Please note that propeller rotation is based on the British and American standard (viewing the boat from the stern) which is the opposite to that in Germany.

Just wanted to let you know I received my props in the mail yesterday.... thank you very much they are beautiful props.
The prop was delivered today and your company is excellent on quality it was worth the wait. It is well built and should serve my purpose very well, thank you...
I have built a model tugboat called SEGUIN from an older, no longer available, kit by Mid West (USA). I did not like the supplied plastic prop in the kit....
