    In case you are unfamiliar with them, Incat produce the fast caterman ferries seen world wide and now coming into military service.

    For example there is the HMAS Jervis Bay in service with the Royal Australian Navy and being considered for service by the USN. It formed the basis for the stealth ship seen in the Bond movie Tomorrow Never Dies...

    This is the US Navy test variant.

    Would love one of these in, say 1/700 or 1/350th

    WOW! I'm not a builder of boats or ships. But I think Catamarans are cool. That one ROCKS!!!

    Fast Ferry

    I have some photos which I hope illustrate the power and speed of these vessels. I took the pics from the Stena Line "sea-Cat" out of Belfast which is, I believe, a Finish built ship and much bigger than the Incat. They are both very fast and comfortable ferries.

    I live just down the river from where they make these, and I have to say that they are indeed incredibly beautiful boats. Wouldn't mind seeing a paper kit of them at all :)
