@EricR - Great idea with the floats, looks like a back country bush plane delivery aircraft.  Give it DHL markings and it might fool some folks not in the know. ;)

Sizing of pontoons to Jetstream looks correct to non-engineer me.  Good eye for another good combo.  :smiley:

The Jetstream looks great as a float plane, well done  :smiley: 8) kinda like a Nomad or Twin Otter  8) 8) 8) 8) 8)
The engines' intakes would need to be flipped over to the top of the nacelle to prevent water ingestion  ;)
Although to the engineer in me the floats do seem too far forward for the CofG of the waterplane and the fuselage to align ::) I fear it would have a rather wet tail when taxiing or at rest  :icon_surprised:

Brilliant combo  8)      Looked at B-45 in stash couple days ago.   Never would thought of this.   Be USN B-45.

I like the look of this red beauty and how the floats compliment the nose and engines.

Paint it blue, slap some stars 'n bars on it and few would doubt it.

Great stuff, eric!

@EricR - The DC-130 Drone Launching Pylon really works as your main support pylon for the float.

Gladiator, red : primary seaplanes
« Reply #946 on: April 11, 2020, 03:19:48 PM »

yes, a Gladiator,
with an engine from a Ju188 (I guess the same engine as some FW190)
and a float from a Norseman
and two small floats from a Duck
and indeed a pylon from a DC130 : I am very surprised this one could be recognized ! ;D

Some things just jump out at you like that DC-130 Drone Pylon.  It also helps that I have two of the Italeri 1:48th scale DC-130 kits in protective custody.  :smiley:
