not knowing the diameter or thickness of the wood, I would use 3 or 4
5/16” or 3/8” x 5 or 6” lags with flat washers to hold the wood to the wall.
(assuming the block of wood might be 3 or 4” thick, the bolts will be recessed).
alternating the pattern so not to run exactly in the same line.
predrill with the appropriate size bit.
then the six bolts protruding out that holds the prop.
then the yellow bracket onto that to hold the nose cone.
if you need a drawing, I can sketch one up for you.
a neat addition would be to find the red pennant that says
REMOVE BEFORE FLIGHT – - – and attach it behind the prop – readily available on ebay.

[of course this piece of historical art would have to be way out of reach
of any youngsters that may want to hang off of it]
