Basically the simplest amphibious vehicle I could think of. Not exactly impressive since Dluders has taken LEGO up in the sky, but... :)

Nope Tim, I had to make the wheels detachable for easy transportation. The main goal while building was to make this whole thing fit in my backpack.

I like the nimble "Paddlewheel" effect of the Lego Exo-force wheels:

The effect was much better with 1:1 gearing, but it was too weak for driving on ground. A gearbox would be perfect here, but its added weight would probably make the whole thing sink.
