The CG of the balsa chuckie is on the line of the twin motors, just behind the cockpit.

My old friend Merlyn Graves had a video of his Beach Starship that looks close to that but it’s a different canard and it was 30 mph winds when Merlyn had the maiden flight . Sadly Merlyn is no longer with us and missed by many . Joe

Per scale-only, it does have a resemblance to Laddie's Aquabird design, but it has a number of differences as well.

Nice looking little model and I too would like to know more about it.

This looks to me as if someone cut-up an FMS Fox and built what you see.
