  A longer central support - like that sported by the E15K1 Shiun - would've helped. 


Any longer and the pilot would have had to be on oxygen before take-off!  :o
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

The floats from a Curtiss SC-1 (there's a Smer kit) would IMHO be a good match, too.

The Monogram Kingfisher float is undersized for the Kingfisher, they screwed up when
they made the kit, so itís even more off for this use.

In terms of size and weight itís in a range similar to the Kawanishi N1K1 Kyofu/Rex,
so the Tamiya Kyofu float would be a better choice, and yes, like all of the real world
centre float aircraft that were worth a damn, it has more than one float attachment.
