It shouldn't be too difficult to make one from the 3 bladed one you have in your kit. Cut the blades away from the hub, sand a piece of the sprue until it's got a nice circular cross section and cut a piece about 4 - 5 mm long. Glue 2 styrene disks on the ends, drill them out and glue on two of the blades. Glue on a hub boss made from 2 concentric styrene disks and then blend it all together with putty.
Be careful about the engine. Most Trojans with the 2 bladed prop were -As with a smaller engine and noticeably curving cowl instead of the -B's straight sided cowl.

Thaks Jessica! There's a catch! I do have three or four pictures of the one= s we had here at a moment in time some officers fron Venezuelan Air Force c= ame here to see our T 28s theoreticlly because ours had more powerful engin= es !!!??? Could it be we had ones with the 1820 engine instead of the 1300?= ?? !!!! The problem with our armed forces is they still have the "mentality= " of secrecy, heritage of Trujillo's times and on one hand there are no doc= uments and on the other you'd surprised that old pilots do not remember or = don't want to info about their aircraft!!! I have a T 28 A from monogram already built with the two bladed prop, I'll = follow you advice using that one as a model. Thanks again Jose
