How about a Typhoon or Tempest Floatplane fighter for the FAA.  Used for convoy escort as well as a replacement for some of the cruiser launched aircraft.  The thought of it being used against the Japanese in the Pacific by the RAAF also comes to mind  ;D

Its a big heavy very fast plane and would imaging a large central float and (possibly retractable) outrigger floats would not be as big an impediment for the big Hawkers as for smaller types.

Drag, drag, and more drag.  ;)

With the size of the Typhoon it may be better to go the Blackburn B.44 route:

Tah, I'll have three of those for my RAN Renown and KGV thankyou very much  :)

Sweet model and exactly what I was thinking.

I was also thinking of a Blackburn Firebrand floatplane fighter, don't have one of them hiding somewhere?

Like this Greg?  Kaiser Aircraft Industries TF2K-1 Wasp Trainer. Base kit is Academy Typhoon 1b with the cockpit from a PM Seafury T.61. Drop tanks from a Hurricane. Decal from F6F and spares.

Isn't that a Twinpest, instead?

The nose looks a little bulky on those. Maybe it could be a little more like the Whirlwind nose.

Tempted to use the same bits to make a production Tempest I, with the production tail, and use a serial from the Tempest I production contract that was shifted to Tempest V's.

I originally went for the Tempest on the basis of the Napier Sabre engine and radiator configuration giving a good basis for modification into a turboprop configuration similar to this:



Moreover, the larger wing of the Tempest vs the Fury family gave more potential for underwing pylons if one wanted to go for something with a predominately ground attack role.
