Anyway, I suspect it disassembles similarly. Remove whatever is in those recessed slots at the rear of the prop. It should allow a cap to come off that is holding the blades on. Then, those nuts must be keeping the case halves held together around the shaft.
The nuts secure the pitch adjustment screws and have nothing to do with the removal of the prop.
