The NM1B2 Pelican is an Iosian flying boat produced in the 1930s and 1940s as a Maritime Patrol Bomber and anti-Submarine amphibious aircraft. It was the most widely used Seaplane of the Second Global war with almost every one of Iosia's allied nations utilizing the aircraft.
The NM1B2 Pelican served in every branch of Iosia's forces during the Second Global War. and even still to this day has limited military use as a search and rescue aircraft for distances far from helicopter range- 82 years after it's introduction in 1936.
The Naming Designation of the NM1B2 stands for Naval Model One, Bomber variation 2 as the second variation of the aircraft featured landing gear for ground operations and a nose gunner with more visibility, The nickname Pelican was adopted by Nordenvokian Forces as the front of the aircraft bears a striking resemblance of the said bird, the nickname eventually stuck with Iosian troops as it was easier to call out.

Maximum speed: 205 mph at sea 8,200 ft Cruise speed: 187 mph at sea level Range: 2,520 mi (4,030 km) Service ceiling: 15,800 ft (4,815 m) Rate of climb: 1,000 ft/min (5.1 m/s)
This is by far my largest build.
Side note, be VERY careful when landing on land with this aircraft, the landing gear are super finicky and there's nothing I can do about it.
Need votes on my next build it will be a Staple fighter plane (BF-109, Zero, Mustang like) from WWII era like most my aircraft have been the past few months.
