I'll jump in the deep end of the pond.  1/48  Modelcraft 172 Cessna floatplane.  Since it is pretty much basic, might actually have a chance of completion.

I have never finished a GB yet Embarrassed, but something is coming in the mail that checks off all the boxes (it's floaty, boaty, and super-weird).  OK, OK, no suspense - it's Takom's "Lun" Ekraonoplan:

Ok BK, I'll have a crack at this with the Eduard Sopwith Baby float plane. Don't know how it will go as aircraft are not my best subjects, plus it's a biplane and its got lots of pesky PE. But nothing ventured, nothing gained.

I long to live in a world where chickens can cross the road without having their motives questioned

Thanks BK. From what I was reading it quickly was nicknamed Seacow by the crews due to its poor performance. An interesting aircraft to build even though it saw very limited service.

Hi , I would like to join in with the Mach 2 , 1/72 Martin P6M Seamaster

I've built a few Mach 2 kits in the past , so I'm aware of the fit challengers that come with the kit . I bought the kit online back in 2012 , 10 years sitting on the shelf is long enough .
