The Blackburn company in England built a retractable hull flying boat(B-20) and also had a fighter with a similar configuration. I like your design with the balance floats as part of the hull.

Cool. Wonder how it would look and perform as a jet.

I actually do know of several real life aircraft with the retractable float as a design feature but I rarely see it used in fictional designs.

I like the idea of the extendable float - is it just to keep the prop out of the water, or does it also provide shock absorbtion?

I think only about prop. But shock absorption idea very good - I like it too =)

I'm guessing the pilot would like it too XD IIRC that was the big problem with the Sea Dart - the landings were incredibly bumpy in anything other than flat calm waters

Why? Does splitting the body improve aerodynamics? Does it allow a single engine like a floatplane with a seaplane's stability?

If you want to land on water you generally want to keep the engine away from the mist.
It let's it rust faster than you can look at.
