The "Science" and the workings have been done and there is a million beetle chassis out there.
It is then not rocket science to take the beetle body off and bolt the Swimbug body on. Propulsion kit on and away you go.
As far as molds and build run. That is a big YES. Amphibians Cars are the Future.
