    That can't be the Sea Duck! The port-side pontoon isn't loose!

    ItA’s a good start, but the catamarans looks to much "thin". :)

    They are, but it matches how they were seen in the cartoon very well. :)

    I think you mean the pontoon's that are under the wings instead of catamarans. to be correct would this plane fall under the name trimaran since it has three parts that lays in the water and not two as the catamarans have.

    anyway the pontoons is just there for stabilitation of the aircraft the major flote part is the airplane body so the pontoon's don't have to be that big in size so i think that the airplane is into scale on them but that is only a guess. I am more thought in aircraft designs that don't land on water

    still thank you all for the kind respons on the airplane

    List of things yet missing:
    1) Head lights
    2) Hood ornament
    3) the two round windows on both sides just behind the side windows.
