Interestingly, there was a real world Seafox landplane, the second prototype, K4305, was built as a landplane, then later converted to a seaplane . . .

Would be the 1/131 kit.   Fuselage-wing proportion works out well.  Good eye for another combo.  Step up in speed from stock Constellation  :smiley:
Be a treat to see one fly out of local SeaTac airport  :smiley:

Very nice ... and plausible. Reminds me very much of the one-off Bloch MB 135 B4.
