Looks...ungainly. Glad to see the engines have so much support. IF they fell, they'd crush that cabin!

It does look 'wrong', doesn't it?

From Wiki:

The Consolidated Commodore was an American flying boat built by Consolidated Aircraft and used for passenger travel in the 1930s, mostly in the Caribbean, operated by companies like Pan American Airways. With a first flight in 1929, a total of 14 Commodore boats were built. Starting February 18, 1930 Commodores were flown by the New York, Rio, Buenos Aires Line from the United States to South America where routes extended as far south as Buenos Aires, a distance of 9000 miles from Miami.

Apparently it had a passenger capacity of up to 30 passengers in the later models.
