So did you ever source any floats?  Project still a go?

I thought about Curtiss Seahawk floats, but I don't know if they are large enough :/

Could always just make some out of some square stock and some needle files/sanding sticks.  You'd be surprised how easy and relatively quick it would be.  Looking at the design you have, you're not going to find anything close I don't think.  Scratching might be the best route.

Trying to find aftermarket floats is like looking for a needle in a stack of needles....

Senor Fern has a magnificent design sense and you will bring it to life in 3D magnificently Slerski!

I will be keeping my glass on this one!
