NAUTILUS SSN - 571 First Nuclear Submarine
« on: April 20, 2015, 11:40:52 AM »

HELLO , :)

I'm thinking very seriously for some time on the first Nuclear submarine , Nautilus SSN 571 ....

I started looking on the INTERNET and stored in the computer all I could found ....
Unfortunately I saw that , although there is been so many years , sense was launched / decommissioned , shapes plan and / or crossed sections of the submarine are not made public or at least declassified ( or did not know where to look :wink: ) ....

Therefore I thought to open a new thread with this Subject with the hope in my heart that there are something somewhere available ....
Many Thanks in advance to All for any information regarding this submarine .....

As to be understood about how I would like to do this project - if I have gathered enough information :
- mainly all I need are some decent external drawings and cross sections plan ,
- I'd like to build this submarine in old fashion way - the keel / ribs / casing , etc like the sail ships where don ,
- then I need to know where was the position of the ballast tank and how they looks like , or some fuel tanks situated ,
- I intend to unite couple spaces , seal them and using some “syringe / piston” system to control the trimming .

For the moment I'm not concern about the scale .
Maybe no more than 1Meter long and 8-10 cm wide .
As a referince I post some pictures :
