Just looked at the C50 wheels, the hub looks narrower than the ones I'm looking at, but the bearings are recessed less on the C50's. I might need about a 1" spacer to keep the suspension clear of the hub, that's a detail to be sorted, as long as the test blades are somewhere near they'll give worthwhile info. I'll play with polyester initially as it's what I've got, then probably move on to epoxy, for the final job.

Thanks for the dimensions Victor, at least I know I’m in the right region with my guesstimate. I'm going to do some trial blades, I can then clamp them at various lengths and do some load against deflection measurements. It'll give me a feel for what's needed when I do come to mould some springs.
