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.

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
