The Delanne 10 C has a superb shape.

I thought it deserved to be tried out with a float equipment.

I susally paint my models in blue, yellow or red, so that just their aerodynamics and shape are highlighted ;
this time, as an exception, i used orange  ;)

I also made the Delanne)Lysander in blue, but just natural this time (except for the color  ;) ), no floats.

It is so beautiful that it looks like a What Ih, whereas it is jst plainly true  :D

Love the hydravion Delanne 10 C2   :-*
You better stock up on water, canned goods off the shelves
And loot some for the old folks who can't loot for themselves
The doorbell's ringing, could be the elves
But it's probably the werewolf, it's quarter to twelve
And when it's midnight, ... the wolf bites

Last night, Ericr, you made me dream of tandem wings... :-*
I needed to reveal (to the whole World) that the Delanne 10C2 was a derivative of the Lockheed P-38, yes! Here are the missing links: :-\ ;)

Maybe there is too much scratchbuilding to build them though... More easy tandem-winged Mustangs could be like this:

Amusing thought:  this begs to be set up in a diorama, sitting on the water somewhere with the pilot having opened the rear canopy and sitting fishing... ;D

Hmmm...can I get a kit in 1/48?

Nice idea!  :D
I remember the Hasegawa 1/72 kit for the Zero floatplane with a water-diorama (a kind of clear resin base with the main float and a secondary float in water) : it also has a figure of a pilot in swimming suit, hold a ... fishing cane !  ;)
So your idea seems doable, provided you find the ingerdients  :o
I know only of a 1/72 kit for the Delanne, but not 1/48.

Nice idea, that's my opinion too. :-*

The Delanne 10 seems to be available in both 1/72 and 1/144:

Maybe you could try someday a 3-surface tandew-wing layout...

I asked Google pictures "Lysander Delanne model" and got almost nothing, is your one full scratchbuilding? It seems it would be the third Delanne-Lysander model ever made in the World... (and the very first one with civilian colours)
