Hi Peter,
You need to search your spinner for it's data plate(s). These will probably be as small as 1cm x 2cm, alloy riveted on. It would be usual for there to be one on the baseplate and one on the dome, but near the join with the base. You have to look very carefully as they can be hidden. The info on them would help alot! Cheers

This is what we would expect to see in a FW 190A/G/F spinner.

The FW 190A/G/F spinner attaches to a solid, robust base plate.

Look at your spinner. Notice the metal band under the prop blade cutouts that the FW 190A/G/F spinner does not have? What is that?

Please submit additional photos.

Bronc,
That "metal band" is the spinner backplate. It is the strong plate that mounts to the rear of the prophub and carries the latching mechanism for the spinner itself. Cheers

Re: Fw190 Spinner
 
BRONC,

Firstly congratulations for the piece itself. It is beautiful.

For some of us who were or still are modelists, what "made my day" was the visual information of so many rivets on the outside (and that they could be silver instead of painted, due to wearing, etc.); and the most amazing INTERNAL picture which shows us (at least this was unknown to me...maybe very very poor knowledge or technical books about this topic)...that internally it seems there were two hubs...a small one where the protuberance of the cannon seems to stand, and the second or first piece much larger...In my thoughts, it was just one conical shape and piece, not two like you showed on the picture.

Thank you for enlighting me with this knowledge and for sharing those photographs and most beautiful item.

Thanks to you I learned another thing today about LW and Aviation (WW2).

Very grateful,
Adriano

The spinners on the Fw 190A/F/G, Fw 190D and Ta 152H were of different sizes: in height, diameter and ogive.

Once again, knowing the dimensions of the item would help...
