I was browsing EBay and happened to notice two ads for the Disney Nautilus, one built and the other a kit. Both are by the same fellow. The model works out to 31 inches. Has anyone any knowledge of this seller and his products?

If the seller is GoddessLaksmi, run, DON'T WALK, from that sale. He does substandard work and delivery is long, if you get his product at all.

I'm sure he means well, but he's in way over his head.

If you want a Disney Nautilus model, I can hook you up in a few different scales at

Thanks for the information. If you look at the responses it lists on the eBay listing, you would think he is the best producer and seller.

To Obi-Bob, you listen. The Custom Replicas (Jim Key/Scott Brodeen)-produced Nautili are the best available ANYwhere. I know this. I own (and am building) the 66" kit; close buddies also own these kits now built-up in both the 66" and 31" sizes so I've seen them up close and running. Jaw-dropping reproductions. You can't go wrong. Also, specific build advice is available right here on these SubCommittee forums. And Nauti-Bob can help you with gold-standard advice and answers to any questions. I know this too.
