Please forgive me if noted before (I searched and didn't see anything) but the DR.I and D.VII Axial propeller logos are backwards. The proper orientation should be:

1. The peaks of the large "A" should point toward the hub.

2. Thus, if the prop is vertical, the logo on the topmost blade will be upside down.

Here’s an example on an F.I:

There may be exceptions that I've overlooked but the overwhelming majority of Axial propellers had their logos oriented in this fashion.

Please regard these comments as constructive. Overall, the props look nice. (Btw, it would be great to have a logo-less Axial or even a Heine prop for the D.VII).
