Ok, there is this posting….
TMP link

But what if I wanted a clear fix as described and asked for in the above link, but I want one to simulate the fan blades of say a duct fan? Duct fans will have many blades. Like the fan ducts on the GW Promethium Refinery kit. Bottom right pic.

Is there away to accomplish this?

You can use the above technique, just with more hazy bands.

I prefer to make static fanblades for ducts. Just happen to be doing so on my table right now.

I draw them to the sizes I want. Scan them to word doc. Copy and paste in word as many as I need. Then print on clear overlay.
