Yeah, I was going to ask you bout the Nautilus. It says some outrageous speed under water and another outrageous speed surface. The range is in lightyear's Confused. So question G, if it stays on the water and underwater then what's the deal with the lightyear distances? Does it go in space? And if so, why water?

 

For once Steve, I have no answer!  Surprise  I never really watched Nadia, so I'm just as much in the dark as you.  I just thought the mecha in the show was kinda neat, especially the bad guys' fish-like submarines.

A lot of fiction writers forget that water is unforgivably "draggy", and so they give their creations unrealistic performance figures.  That being said, the Soviet-era Alpha Class subs could allegedly reach something like 50+ knots underwater.  But they were as loud as a Disater Area concert going at that speed.  (See Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy - the BBC TV series, not the terrible movie, for the Disater Area reference.)

My last two pick-ups:

I picked up the Tony despite having the older Hasegawa kit in the stash.  Will build both at the same time eventually.  While I'd prefer to have a 1/48 Short Stirling, I'd always wanted to build one.  Looks to be a pretty good kit.
