Default Scale Seaplane plans to build UAV

I having been talking to a guy that does enviromental sampling from a boat and he knew I flew model planes and asked if I could build a sampling plane.

My plan is to find a plan for a scale PUSHER seaplane that I could scale up to at least 150". It needs to be a pusher because I need fresh air in the front for instruments.

Initially it will be radio control with an on board data logger, which will log sample data and GPS location. Eventually it will be GPS auto piloted.

Can anyone point me to a decent set of plans like an LA-4 Buccaneer or similar. I want plans because I will need to make some huge alterations so a kit doesn't suit.
