I believe you can get kit of the sci-fi ferry by some Japanese manufacturer.

EDIT: 1/150 by Fujimi (LINK!)

It's a waterline model, available through HLJ for quite cheap! https://www.hlj.com/1-150-scale-water-bus-himiko-fuj91006

Converted to 1/350? Hmmmm! Ideas! ;)

Hovercraft!  8)
Or something with hydrofoils.

Or chop up some 8x8 APC hull, add Himiko upper parts and you've got yourself a really nice sci-fi planetary exploration vehicle. Somewhere between Tintin's moon exploration tank and the Star Wars clone turbo tank.  :icon_jedi: :icon_vader:

Has possibilities :smiley:  Have to check size of the kit vs size of various 8x8 APC kits.

Another Japanese ferry ...

Had to Google that!

Wiki mentions "ハッピードッグクルーズ, Happī Doggu Kurūzu ... A daily event cruise for dog people." And why not?
