I found this 1/60 ready-built figurine (NewRay) and added floats (from a 1/72 Twin Otter);
I nearly painted it blue, but its original colors only required a red complement

Nice call on the colors, eric. The floats look like they were made for it.

Indeed!  In this scale-o-rama, are the Twotter pontoons proportionately bigger than the usual Air Tractor float gear? If so, perfect for a Fire Boss upgrade  :smiley:

They don't appear to be bigger.

Concur but yours would no doubt be in USN blue!

Another fantastic flying boat, eric! Most excellent!

Very nice.  I would posit, though, that flipping the engines to over the top of the wing would reduce spray ingestion.

Always loved C-130 seaplane conversions, and this one is well done. I remember one being in the Resident Evil: Code Veronica game, and seeing the idea in other places too. Always felt like a 'should have been' rather than a 'what if'.
I much prefer the 'flying boat' style like this than the 'floatplane' ones.
