And for those of us not into 70 years of being a nut ... 40 years + reference library + a job years while at Uni watching hundreds of hours of film and building an index to the archive - getting paid

Fleet 50 Freighter on floats. You could have them with wheels, if that was your preference. Only 5 were built, by Canadian company, Fleet Aircraft.

Originally powered by 2 x Jacobs 7cyl radials (L-5MB) at 285HP each, the engines were later upgraded to 330HP each (L-6MB). But even at that, they couldn't maintain altitude on one engine, so the aircraft was a flop.

MiG-9E. Reportedly, 10 were built, and went into service. Other reports state only 1 became operational. The design had poor manoeuvrability, and no major performance improvements on other current designs, so the project was abandoned.

Close enough, PapaFox, it's the later model, GX. The G3 was introduced in 1997, and the production GX in 2006 with mods to improve handling and turbulence penetration.

 

Here is what looks like another Cub derivative.
