Looks 747 to my eyes. Very neat.

Thanks everyone!

Yes, Ericr described it perfectly: it's a 747 with a hull and "ekranoplanized" :)

 Nicely done! A great concept ( I can think of nobody who would put such a craft to better use than the USCG) and a terrific execution.

Looks great , though an alternative could be one of those Miniwings 1/200 Spruce Goose kits would probably work quite well with some filler etc ;-)
