I know I've got Swordfish floats somewhere, I just need a cheap Frog/spawn Barracuda.

Actually, I need 2 as I'd like to do a post war Centaurus powered one, using a Matchbox Tempest nose.

Wowee, biggie is right! :thumbsup:

I'm already imagining the other 'half'...………….  ;D
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! :)

I don't know if "big" is always synonym to "great", but this one is great too! :thumbsup: ;D

I have found an incredible seaplane at https://www.artstation.com/artwork/e0oVZY
with hydrofoil and like submarine tailed weight, will that inspire you Ericr? :unsure: <_<

impressive

looks a bit like a BV138 fuselage hull, but then equipped differently

(btw I do have a BV138 in my stash but ... too late)

Your BUFF and BV222 combination looks like it’s meant to be! Something I’m going to try one of these days. There just has to be a cool way to mount those engines above the wing. Maybe blended in like a Seamaster........
