“The involvement of what the press reported as ‘magnificent craft’, first in the War of the Pacific, then in the subsequent Spanish Reclamation and then again in the Invasion of 1899, has long been a mystery to all observers, including Peruvian Command themselves. These enigmatic machines appeared and involved themselves unaccountably, showing themselves to be of superior science and design to anything else known to the world, constantly harassing shipping and even being present at major engagements. The only accountable theory for their presence is that these men of magnificent scientific ability, whomever they should be: dissidents or anarchists, were working outside of the scientific circles of the world, and had logically then chosen to take up residence previously undisturbed areas of South America or the remote islands of the Pacific.”
Having made a model of The Albatross from ‘Robur the Conquer’ it felt only right to make a model of Nemo’s Nautilus. I’ve gone with something closer to the description from the book rather than the Disney interpretation of the machine. It’s a 1:1200 British Great War submarine with some very light converting. I cut the hull into a slightly different shape and added a small fin made of some card. It took less than an hour in the end. Its painted green because grey is just so...grey. Hope you all like it, C&C always welcome.
