depending on how far you want it to be from the wall,
“if it were my project”. I would build a wood base to fit behind
the yellow bracket that would have bolts epoxied in place so they
wouldn’t turn, mount that to the wall on a stud, mount the prop,
screw the nose cap in place and call it a day.
37 pounds is not that heavy for a single stud mount, IMO.
or, if you want to cross two or more studs, you could build a nice
varnished backboard to sort of frame behind it.
and since it will always be a wall hanger, option “B” would be to weld
two aluminum brackets on the back of the prop that will span two studs and hang
like a picture frame with key slots.
