The scale prop won't be adequate for any flying pics except to glide past with the prop turning as the aircraft glides.

Some modelers are capable of crafting a scale looking prop from various materials for the scale look on display, but add a proper rubber power prop for flying.   The trick would be to determine the scale of the Dumas model and find a plastic model of close scale for the prop.   I'm sure there are some fairly large plastic models of the Corsair around 1/48 or 1/32 scale or maybe a 1/24. 

Here's a link to accessories for plastic models and a Corsair prop: /0/] Click Here

I'm building a Dumas kit of the F-4U Corsair.  The more I build it the more ideas I have for adding authenticity to the model.  For instance, I already have plans for making the wings foldable and the land gear retractable.

So I'm looking for a prop that be appropriate for a model with a 17.5 inch wingspan.  I plan to get some photos of flying, but past that it will be an air-worthy static display.

I found this photo on a UK site advertising the Dumas kit, so clearly they are out there.
