Take a Fairchild A-10 "Warthog" as a basis (I have always been inspired by that marvelous machine), then graft a North American Bronco's cockpit and a Boeing YC-14's tail... and you get the Sea Skimmer!

However improbable the result (and downright impossible in terms of scales, for anyone who'd wish to commit it to plastic!), I find the result aesthetically rather pleasing nonetheless...

I haven't been able to retrace the exact same three profiles I used but I found three other ones which are similar. They appear below right.
