Float Planes And Sea Planes

Nice bird!  Looking at the nose section, it appears that the P-2 Marlin lives on.  Is this aircraft amphibious, or are the wheels simply for self-beaching?  I was also impressed at how uncluttered the instrument panels are.

Only a few of them though (^^)

It looks like a P-2 (P-5?) Merlin but seems unrelated as it seems like its leneage goes back to an HU-16 (UF-1) that the US handed over in the early 1960s. Yeah, US-2 is amphibious. Here's it taking off from a runway at 3:30.
