Other twin-engined projects with intermeshing propellers (not built, even if some could have been):

EDIT: the second one was not Burnelli, sorry, I have changed it!

I have completed my finished entry but on the other forum Wuzak directed me to a peculiar Spitfire

and I needed to design Burnelli-Lightnings this way too...

As the push-pull Spitfire mentionned above had tandem wings, I should add still new Burnelli-Lightnings:

And related to the Bv-138: the UB-138A, B, C:


And related to the Savoia S.55, 66 and 77: the UB-38SM-1, 2, 3:

aah yes,,, With high mounted engines on that novel configuration, you are onto flying boat designs  :)
Very interesting.  The plot thickens......

Thanks finsrin for that new idea! ;)
Do you mean Burnelli lifting fuselage acting as Dornier sponsons? or supporting floats?

Pictured you headed toward designs like one on left.  But they both look doable as kitbashes waiting to happen.

Thanks!
And as there were some Burnellis being single-boom, there could be designed such a Burnelli-sea-Lightning: UB-38DO (built under licence by Dornier, expert about sponsons):

To build this hmmm:
> P-38 kit for engines and outer wings   1/48
> Tail boom from any number of kits
> Nose from Banshee or your pick   1/48
> Center wing from OV-10 outer wings ?   1/48
> Main body from 1/72 XB-35/49 or scratch build or ?

Other ideas..... ?

Great building project, thanks for the analysis!
But before deciding, let us consider that a Lightning flying boat shoulda be twin-hull, because this is a Lightning!:
