Was there ever a kit of that delightful little German boat-mobile the Amphicar?

I think even with my substandard modeling skills I could scratchbuild a halfway decent curbside replica of one, but I'd really like to save the effort, if possible!

Thanks!

A bit O.T. but when I was a kid somebody on our block had one! It was red with a white interior, and it would be parked out on the street with all the other "regular" cars. I guess the owner commuted to work in it M-F and took it out to the lake on the weekend?

Off topic, yes, but a cool story nonetheless!

Hey Chuck:

You mean like the one in my avatar?? :) Actually, it's a prototype for a resin kit I'm working on in 1/25th. There was a 1/43 kit of white metal from somewhere in Europe(Germany??), but long discontinued.
