And a new word enters the modelling lexicon - "Ericr'd". Definition: To forcibly kitbash two irreconcilably different models into two, distinct, gorgeous, new ones.

This adds to "Tophe'd". Definition: To take any kit, drawing, or concept and make it asymmetric, in clear violation of, and nose-thumbing to, reality.

also featuring one float from a Frog Swordfish, for asymetric stability
(how are these boats from the Pacific called, with a main hull and one side-float?)

 My recollection is that they are called outriggers, at least the side float is -outrigger canoes. I lived on Kwajalein island as a child,
and the form was a popular form of folk art as well. Ideally, though, the outrigger should be braced to the hull. Bracing it to the wing
is the equivalent of bracing it to the mast or sail. ;) Good lookin' ship, regardless!

You’ve been taking lessons from Tophe I see!
That’s a wild combo, I love it! And oh yeah, I’d call it outrigger!
