A purely landbased derivative was proposed, too:
(from AviatonWeek 8/1970)

I wonder if it's just poor detailing in the landing gear area or if it indeed fixed gear.

Poor detailing, pretty sure. The amphibian would have had a retractable
landing gear, too, with the nose gear retracting forward and the main gear
probably inwards and the sameI would expect for the STOL version.
