This one is a hit! I wonder how it would look with the wing in a higher position? Might just have to try this. :thumbsup:

This is sick, but looks great!  :thumbsup: I'd just place the engines somewhat higher, and maybe the wings to a shoulder position? The single tail looks good on the A-10, too!

That looks VERY smart.  :thumbsup:
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! :)

Dear ericr,
As you are our what-if seaplane expert, what do you think of single-float seaplanes without external little stabilizing floats? It seems that "exists" even in the Real world:


But the model would not stand on the shelf and an amphibious way might be better visually:

Hi Tophe, thanks for the picture, they are inspiring indeed, could be done in plastic with just one float, and some wingsurface ...
