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:
