I was going thru a link that was in one of the other threads below and seen this. It looks like someone's creation for island transportation created from a wing float or tank?? Yes...no???

Looks like a fuel tank and that is what the caption said.

June 12,1945"

Is the "single cylinder engine" an APU from a B-29, perhaps?
