Northrop C-125C ''Sea Raider'' by Bispro Northrop C-125C ''Sea Raider'' by Bispro
When someone recently mentioned the Northrop C-125 Raider in a post, I realized how much I like that forgotten transport and what potential it held for "whiffing" (what-if-ing).

From that strict U.S. Air Force landplane I developed a seagoing floatplane for the U.S. Navy, the C-125C Sea Raider.

I also did a three-view arrangement of that version: [link]

In the Godzilla movie there was a twin-float Beech 18, I never realized that plane could be equipped with floats.

I believe that most prop aircraft COULD be equipped with floats. Of course it is a lot tougher with a high- or shoulder-wing design, but not impossible...

That would be an amazingly handy machine. They would get snapped up by private concerns after the Navies were done. Could picture them in markings for Cousteau Society, USGS, Forest Service, many others.
