Very nice!  I have this one in my stash for 'some day'.  I have many aftermarket bits, but was shying away from the lighting kit, but after seeing this one, I may just have to get that, too!  

 

 

 

Thank you. I don't know what the lighting kit is like but by all means get it. Just know that the lighting I did was custom and probably different from the kit.

Thanks again!

WOW!  This looks amazing!  The submarine has that "Steam Punk" look to it and the base/setting just makes it POP and brings it to the WOW Factor.  You've got to take this to the 2023 Regionals in Eagle River and the 2024 Nationals in Madison!

Hey thanks, Tom.

I was hoping to attend the 2024 Nationals in Madison. I have not experienced one yet and since it was close, I thought it a good opportunity to go. But I was going as a spectator. Interesting thought to enter this build. I dont know anything about doing so, so I would have to research it. We will see what 2024 looks like when we get there.

Thanks again for your thoughts and enthusiasm for this build! Much appreciate...

Greetings, Rob.  I had done some research and if I had not mounted it to the columns, I could have fit the boat in an enclosure as such.  Once I mounted it to the columns, not so much. The overall height of the piece is about 10" but the length is 16". The football helmet enclosure appears to have a max width of 14.5" and the height is about 11". So close! Next time I go to HL I will measure theirs. Maybe it would fit diagonally? 

I have two other diorama builds with large footprints and those sit in tubs too. That is too bad because I really like them. I am not sure those would fit a floor case even. I'd have to research more.

For me it's the journy of the build but it would be nice to display them too.

"It may be time to get a display case."

 

I found that Michaels and Lobby hobbies hqve many display cases for baskeballs, football helmets that are inexpensive and work well. My Nautilus fits easly in a football helmet display case that set me back about $20 with the Muchaels coupon.

Turned out spectacular.

Minimalist is an aesthetic that's very hard to achieve.

Only reason I'd second Tanker's notion of an aquariium would be to make dusting easier.  Mind, 5 bits of plexiglass would suffice to the end.

And, photos are ehemeral--the best ones just happen.  A person can plan, and prepare, and havign the fundamentals sorted improves the odds, but serendipity is just part of the magic.

 

Thanks Capn.

Yeah dust is a problem, especially in my house. I like to keep windows open in the summer and man, dust gets bad. And that is why it will probably sit in a storage container.

It may be time to get a display case. I am starting to get a collection of builds that may warrant getting one.

I hear you about the serindipity. It is a must to have the mechanicals down right but it is the magic that you can't plan for.

Hey. It is time for you to migrate over to the Bullion Express. Dr Doom is expecting your participation there. Indifferent

Awesome job , as always !!

Wonder what she would look like in an aquarium ???

 

 

Thanks Tim..

Regarding the aquarium. Tanker Builder "floated" that idea a ways back. I think I'd rather just put it on a shelve as is.

Otherwise, there is that feeding fish and water changes stuff. It's a whole ta do. Stick out tongue Just kidding ya.

Fantastic! 

 

The best shot was the one with the lights out on the Nautilus and the overheads beaming down. Amazing!

 

Thanks Rob!  And I like that shot too. Like Dodgy said, it gives a mood. Too bad I can't say I planned it that way. That was my goal, but fate stepped in turning off the lights on me. Had that not happened--we would not be talking about this. Them gremlins. Sometimes--things backfire on them. Wink

This is true. When I first started reviewing the shots on my camera I came across that one and thought--"holy moly-- what is this? I like it!"

This build is magnificent.  I've followed from start to finish.  Love your display; much more than the cracken.  I now have to wait until I fininsh mine to say, "Release the Cracken".  I've learned so much from watching your build.  I still consider myself a beginner.  Thanks for sharing your build.

Hey thanks, Dave and you are welcome. But don't sell your cracken short. It should look cool!

Of course now that Cap'n Nemo has lots of treasure, he can afford the work on the Bullion Express!

 

Dang it! I thought I was out of the woods. Then you set a hook and yanked it. Wink

I guess that settles it. It is time to finish the BE. 

Btw. I have to correct you on one small thing. In this Nemo timeline, the BE precedes Nautilus. BE is the cash cow of funds to build the Nautilus. Now that Nemo has more treasure than sence, he decommissions the BE. BEs output  is a pitance compared to what Nemo finds with Nautilus.

That said, the chapter of Bullion Express remains to be written and must be written or Nautilus can't happen.

And that is that.

Thanks Ferg.Devil

 

 

 

I stand corrected. Whipped, beaten and repentant....... Oh, is this the slave dungeon site, or have I made a mistake.????? DevilDevil

 

Uh-oh. Um yeah. I think you are on the wrong website.  I am not into whipping either. LOL.

The final reveal was superb.  It's a work of art worthy of being the centerpiece of any collection.  You should consider submitting it as an article for the magazine!

Enjoyed following this build from start to finish.  Thanks for letting us join you on the journey!!Smile

Simply superb my friend. All the photos are wonderful, but the 'stealth' shot is so wonderfully moody. An astounding example of model building and a wonderful, informative and fun filled journey along the way. Going to try and save the stealth shot as my screen saver.

Of course now that Cap'n Nemo has lots of treasure, he can afford the work on the Bullion Express!

Excellent!  Excellent!  Excellent!  Your display idea came out perfectly.   Great pics and love the model lighting.  Thanks for the great build thread as always.

 

Thanks, John! Your input is always appreciated. And thanks for following and participating in this build!

Steve,

Commenting on this is difficult.....becuase it is so crazy good.

I'm amazed at what you did with the Nautilus. And before I forget, the pics are awesome too, especially the 'stealth' underwater one, as folks have commented on.

The display is brilliant and adds so much. I somehow missed how you came up with the ruins and how you accomplished bulding them, so when I have time I look forward to back-tracking a bit and checking.

YesYesYesYes

 

Hey thanks, Greg! I survived another one! Phew.  Wink
