Maybe its the overall blue but the single-float Seafox looks rather American to me. Nice  :smiley:

Wow ... that looks sharp! And the KOR-1 is highly plausible float source. Lavochkin-Beriev LaBe-5?  :smiley:

That definitely looks the part of dispersed operational asset.  Out of curiosity, what is that center strut made from?  It looks to be a vertical fin from some aircraft.

Mmmm....... looking at the size I can't help but suggest a future idea, a Skyhawk seaplane  ;)

Skyhawk high mount intakes do give it seaplane potential.

Spaced and cleanly strutted so that the struts pick up the main landing gear trunnions and actuator mounts in the wing; you might as well take advantage of existing structure.

the center strut is the fin of a Tornado, left over from a kitbash with wings and twin-booms of a Go242

« Reply #1173 on: April 05, 2021, 01:40:02 AM »

in the style of the Blackburn B.20

I left the Martin parts unpainted because I so like the original sprues colors in yellow and blue  :rolleyes:

the float parts are from a Beriev 4
