So in the images, the propellers are forward of their mounting and sometimes to the rear. Does the prop rotate 180 to protect itself when not in use, rotation putting further under the vehicle.

Link at 10 seconds shows prop pointing forward.

Can't tell you.

For a waterline model, it won't matter…… ;-)

Thresher. It matters I somtimes do models both in and out! Miht be hard with this one as the trim vane is the only bit visible for a bit of the bow. Hard to connect it invisibly without a base, I hate bases!

I get that.

You could do a thin base the same size as the width of the vehicle though, and perhaps a little water texture between it and the rest of the hull.

Sorry I can't help on the props. I suggest a Google images search for the Luchs details you seek.

Alternatively, ask over on the Lead Adventure site. Might find someone there who actually served in one.
