Vintage Flying Boat

Did it again, found another vintage bird! Not really a fan of powered flight, but I do have a soft spot for old flying boats! This unknown ship was scratch build from a plan. I'm not sure of its name or designer although I do have a hunch. Please, let me know what you think!

Grunau Baby IIb Krick 1/4 kit
