I named my 55 prop project, the BIG BOY and in celebration of its creation and inspiration, I now post the official UP Big Boy announcement.
(there is a link to the prop project in my signature)
I do not know anything about details, (like will it run entirely on its own power, or pushed by diesel, will there be access to engine, etc)
Stoke the oil, stoak the coal! This girl runs on OIL!
