Francesco Fondi, of HobbyMedia, sent us news of this awesome USS Enterprise NCC-1701-A “submarine,” and holiday wishes, from Tokyo. Happy holidays to you and everybody at HobbyMedia, Fra!

The Japanese modeler Starfleet Yokosuka has built a radio-controlled 1/350 scale replica of the USS Enterprise NCC-1701-A from the Star Trek series. What makes this model unique is the fact that it “flies” in water! Yes, in Japan there’s a new underground hobby of geeks who transform static kits into radio-controlled underwater spaceships!
