Jules Verne Nautilus
« on: December 15, 2010, 06:56:21 PM »

Okay, I will admit to being a bit of a Nautilus anorak from the start, ask any of our members!! I have obtained an Engel Akula and, upon looking about on the old internet thingy, have decided that there are a number of really nice representations of this sub out there.why compete, therefore I have decided to butcher it..

I have been sketching Nautilus designs for the last five years, this has resulted in a design I am happy with and intend to build soon. However, the Akula offered me an oportunity to get a Nautilus on the water a bit quicker ( and it only took two days to pin down the design!! ). I have christened it 'The Streamliner' while the other design is 'The Beast'! You will have to wait to see The Beast, its a BEAST...
What do you guys think??
 For those with a taste for big brass submarines, check out the link below, its an inspiration.

As some inspiration, here's a Nautilus produced by some one here in southern Ontario, some years ago.

Love it, I am a bit of a Steampunk, and one day I will get my head around building a steamboat of some type in a steampunk style.

what about this one?



The first time I saw the 'leagues' nautilus I nearly threw my popcorn at the screen, then it proceeded to plane across the ocean at 50 knots and squeeze into a canal in venice.... I hated it, however, now all is forgiven, I love it. Still a bit big though.

Giovanni .....the image of the submarine in the enclosed sub-pen is mirror reversed to the other two images.......so does this mean it is not a real vessel?  {-) {-) {-) {-) {-) {-) {-) %% Derek  :-))

This sub is a fantastic design, although it isnt specifically a Nautilus. I notice it is referred to as 'Discovery' in this image. Is that a german Imperial Eagle logo on the wall of the adjacent Pen? If so, is this a screen grab from either'Raiders' or Das Boot, with a really cool submarine design 'photoshopped' into the image??

Don't forget the Nautilus from film "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen"

I love "steam punk"....... I heard of a book / novel about that the Victorians had perfected the computer, the mechanical computer, 'The Probability Engine', or something like that but I've never found it even after extensive searches...
