I'm getting a big Gerry

I'm getting a big Gerry Anderson vibe off this one.

The little red ship and it's

The little red ship and it's larger version are called the "Grandis Tank" or "Grantan" depending on translation. The show this is from is a wonderful exploration of everything Jules Verne, through the eyes of Hideaki Anno (Neon Genesis Evangelion, Gunbuster, Shin Godzilla). The show starts off feeling like an American kids show with goofy jewel thief villains chasing a pair of young teens around the world in a Steampunk era. But then things change. The villains turn out to be not so villainous, all end up allied with Captain Nemo, and the fun really begins. The Grandis Tank is the Goofy Villains vehicle. The little plane is the kids. If you can make it past the first two episodes, where it is still a wacky american style chase cartoon, it suddenly becomes one of the best and deepest animes ever made. What NGE could have been of Anno hadn't gone off his meds for the last two episodes.

The new 20th Anniversary Soul of Chogokin book shows a picture of the Nautilus II from the second season of Nadia. It's a sleeker winged ship that can fly. Bandai might be considering one.
