Kinda looks like the Seaduck

Blohm & Voss BV 138

The Blohm & Voss BV 138 Seedrache (Sea Dragon, but nicknamed Der Fliegende Holzschuh (flying clog)) was a World War II German flying boat that functioned as the Luftwaffe's main long-range maritime reconnaissance aircraft.

...Unusual were the aircraft's twin boom tail unit, and gun turrets at the bow and the stern of the fuselage, as well as behind the central engine. These features together produced the aircraft's ungainly appearance.
