Curious about power plants. Maybe R-4360, 28-cylinder "corncobs." Toward the end of the war they were getting considerable use, though not wonderfully reliable. The F-11's nacelles appear to be long enough to accommodate the 4360, which comprised four rows of seven-cylinder radial pistons. Notable later use was in the B-36 and of course the Spruce Goose, and I think the B-50 as well. Some writers seem to think that the B-29 had 4360's, but I believe all of the service-use B-29's had 3350's, a mere 18 cylinders each. (PS I have logged over a thousand hours behind 3350's, but have never piloted a 4360.
