I believe that "0310.025.-509" did not have a forced cooling fan for the radiator.
You can see rectangle shape four radiator outlet air nozzle at upper and under the fuselage.
Troublesome design. If this design had additional jet engine same as "P.1310251-13/II", no problem.
Use only jet engine at taxing to avoid engine over heat.

As the engine was to be relatively far aft, I'm wondering if chosing the swept wing
was purely for aerodynamic reasons, or maybe just for getting the CG in correct place ?
Good point Jemiba,
aBalance is a huge problem on single-engines pushers ... and I as we discussed over on the Japanese Shinden and Senden and Luke threads. Heavy engines need to be mounted near the centre of gravity, by propelllers need to be mounted aft of the trailing edge.

I could write an entire chapter about “Seabee” confi gyration flying boats.
