    Not to be nitpicky, but I am interested in WWI aircraft so I've looked at quite a few propellers. The propeller itself is usually laminated from multiple pieces of wood, so you can see the seams and grain changes. There should be somewhat sharp edges where the prop goes from the flat front to the curved blades, not perfectly smooth. Also, since the propeller was put on from the front, instead of bolt heads as you are showing, it's usually the ends of the bolts with nuts that were screwed on, that you would see from the front. You could bolt it on either way but it'd be way easier for the ground crew to do it the reverse of what you modeled. Here's a closeup showing the stuff I mentioned. Sorry, I'm just a WWI aircraft fan. :)
