Is it just me, or does this look more like an oversize Dolphin than an Aircraft.... To me, it does not look Proportional!.... IMHO

You are right at least partially. It looks like a beluga, a white whale that lives in the Arctic Ocean and around. That’s where it got its name. Of course the proportions are dictated by its job, ferrying around large aircraft parts. I think the designers did a great job, underlining the beluga look with just a couple of gallons of black paint to make it look like a smiling whale.

It does look interesting... I hope those engines are a lot bigger than they look... LOL!

They do look small, I agree, in proportion to the huge cargo hold, but they are perfectly up to the job it seems. From what I found they are Rolls-Royce Trent 700 turbofan, with 316 kN (71,000 lbf) thrust.
