This is a Heinkel He-115 twin-engine 3-place seaplane in German Luftwaffe service. During World War II this aircraft operated as a patrol bomber and aerial minelayer, as well as a torpedo bomber and general reconaissance craft. Initially, power was from twin BMW radial piston engines, although there were eventually several variants in German, as well as other countries service, using differing powerplants and sometimes having 4 crewmembers.

I presume that this is a kit? If so, nice work mate, especially on the canopy. Masking off greenhouse-style canopies drives me insane

I reckon it would have been an amazing sight to see one of these big aircraft flying low over the water in the Mediterranean.
