I happen to know where there is a 28 cylinder Pratt & Whitney setting at just across the airport from my hangar.
Think it would have enough power? LOL!!!
In reality IT IS the spare engine for the Howard Hughes Flying boat.
It was donated to the airplane museum in Auburn.
I do admire your work Dag!
I'm one of those OLD CURMUDGEONS who still uses Exacto knives,Elmers glue. epoxy sometimes, and puts an airplane together piece by piece instead of pulling it out of a box already put together.
Sometimes I even scratch build, like I said I'm an ancient dinosaur type, who also uses scroll saws, band saws, radial sanders, for making my own parts, and pins and vises for assembling an airplane.

I will make some time this winter to get up there and see that engine. I too still used the caveman tools. Wish I had a CNC router. But most of my parts come from a bandsaw, jigsaw, and belt sander.
