Yes Sir, I have noticed the same regarding the engine mounts. I do have the wing mounts engine centerline below the wings' leading edge. If pointed pointed downward, I cannot verify that. It is hard to assess without knowing the wing NACA and the degrees of incidence. That looks pretty strong to me.
Yes, I have observed the intake for some time now; I just haven't gotten to it yet. There is also a very strange exhaust port on the far sides of the nacelles, shaped about like a whiskey flask for toting, very wide and narrow, almost flat.
The wing fairings are huge and quite unlike the typical one seen on the DC3 or Connie. But without better pictures, I will be somewhat reserved in that depiction.
I am curious if there are guidelines/rules of thumb for wing mounted engines, especially in these configurations, just how far from the fuselage they should be mounted. What are the deciding factors?
Also looking for input on cabin appointments.
