Looking for a different Nautilus

Postby RavenVV » Mon Jun 29, 2009 7:28 pm

I along time ago, lets say 4 to 5 years, I came a cross on the web a model of the Nautilus. I was for a TV miniseries, I think. This one was different form all other that I have see, it was shaped like stingray, wide round bow with a long tale stern. Has any one seen this or know what I am talking about? Dose any one know were I can find more pics of it or what the 2,000 Leagues under the sea movie/ show was and/or were I can find it?

Thanks
Chris

Could you be talking about the movie "League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" ?

I think you're referring to the ABC Nautilus,with Michael Caine as Captain Nemo.

Thanks Andrew that is the one that I was thinking of. I will do some web searches for it, but do you know of any good web sites that have any good construction pic or layout drawings of her?

Thanks

No websites I'm afraid.

You can try asking over at this forum for information (you need to register, but it's free).

All of my reference material was provided by Will Babington, who frequents NautilusSubmarine.com quite often. I can't release it without his permission, so you might want to talk to him there.

Good luck!

Yes, Will is the guy to talk to. Some years ago he posted a series of detailed photos on his scratch build of that monster. I can't recall if it was here or elsewhere. There is a reference to it in our photo section, but the link does not work. There are a few pixs of it over on the CultTVman site. A Google on it comes up pretty much nil.
