--62r D.H. 'Albatross' Mail Liner, Four-Engined Liner (1939-1949)

Wondering once more about the 3-blade propellers on this Dinky Toys D.H. 'Albatross' Mail Liner, compared with the 2-blade propellers on the real one, and as pictured in Dinky Toys publicity, I suddenly remembered/rediscovered a contribution of mine to the Talk Model Toys forum (probably one of the final, of March 2013, before closing down) on this topic. I will avoid repeating all that on this place and confine myself to presenting a link:
