Nice build, looks believable :) :)

I like this one a lot! Putting it up on floats was inspired and the ventral fin is a great addition as is that striking red scheme!

this build was first devoid of hull and floats, but was subsequently improved, and consequently moved from
http://beyondthesprues.com/Forum/index.php?topic=4100.msg117194#msg117194
to here, where it now belongs :

1/28 Camel, wooden kit of da Vinci designed wings, hull from an old three masted "Hamphitrite", side floats are fuel barrels from two 1/48 P-61 :

I've found its pilot!  :)

Good red and blue seaplanes.  Enjoyed them both. :)
Suspect barrels as wing floats to be problematic.  Maybe, thatz a guess.

A very crisp, clean build!

I especially like how the red float plane is complimented by the blue & yellow beaching bits.

I got hold of a (cheap) Italeri 1/48 Skyraider, as well as of a pair of Airfix Ju-52 floats, and their size did fit
(the profiled struts are optional wings end from a (very cheap) 1/24 Harrier for I have ongoing activity ...) :
the color can be thought of as a firefighting floatplane exercise, a role for which some Skuraiders were equipped I think,
and the floatplane relevance was convincingly established by e.g. movies like Planes 2.

I have a 1/72nd Skyraider on the shelf that needs to be remodeled. I think I have the floats for one too......
Cool idea!

In the 60's a lone pilot "acquires" a surplus Skyraider and mounts it on floats He makes a questionably legal living flying people and cargo around the South Pacific, no questions asked.....
