Hi All,

Here's a neat piece, 3 1/2" India made ATC flight engineer.   Unmarked, cast.   Possibly a one off piece.   Great example of these artisans ability to replicate badges with some artistic license thrown in - in this case, even has gilt finish.   It'll be in the for sale section soon.

I’ve never seen anything like it.

Is the propeller pinned through?

Thanks for looking guys.   The prop may be pinned through and the ends covered with a line of brass, hard to tell even in hand.
