    I bet the paint job is worth more than the aircraft.

    I've gotta say I'm not usually a fan of this sort of paint but the shark on that sea plane is the doggies. If anything ever looked like it belonged.. that paint does

    Looking at the engine mounting (above the wing) and main gear location, it's more likely a Chaika L-44

    Thanks. Good-looking plane. Probably some "interesting" flight characteristics, though. I'll have to do a little research on that one.
