German Schmalturn on T-34 hull is a good choice IMO.

It needs some under wing hard points  added to carry an adequate supply of beer.  Drop tanks converted to coolers.
No, no, too high up and over the water.

You build a cooler into the top surface of each float, silly man. Then you can land, open the top of a float and just reach down and grab a beer.

The top-of-the-line version has removable deck chairs and a fold-out BBQ built into the floats as well...

Very cool.

I was going to suggest, given that this is a WHIF, that you might adopt the solution the Yanks used on the M113 for it's fuel tanks, put them outside the hull and or use the Russian BMP solution, make the rear doors out of them. Or both.

There really is no bloody room inside with the tanks in there is there? Even the picture of the real thing makes it look like you'd absolutely have to be no older than 15 to fit with even just your rifle and webbing.

Just seemed a natural progression ---
Yep, certainly does.

Producing a TF-33 -like turbofan version of the Canuck's Orenda engine could easily have seen the thrust increase from the 7400 lbf of the Orenda-9, dry, to something like 11,000 lbf, dry, an exceptionally healthy increase, along with an increase in range as well.

Perfect for a recce version, as you show, and also useful if the wings were strengthened and the aircraft turned into a single-seater bomb truck. Actually, if the second seat was retained and precision bombing aids added, it could have been a precision strike aircraft along the lines of the A-6 or Buccaneer. That would have been cool to see in Europe in the early 60s in the grey/green camo pattern, no?

I think I've got a Clunk in the stash somewhere...
