Ray Mason's Nautilus

Postby Captain Nemo » Fri Mar 21, 2008 9:19 pm

Back when there were pictures of Ray Mason's Nautilus here at SC, the text mentioned that it was cast from a wood and cardboard model.

Does anyone know who made the original model? Was it Ray or someone else; and if someone else, who?

It was Ray who made the original. Fantastic piece of work.

Thanks Andy. That's what I always thought, but wasn't quite sure.

She's an oldie...back in the early 1980's I believe, right? Still, one of the best ever, IMOHO.

Thanks for the info. Hope all's going well for you.

VBR,

Pat

Hi,

I still have my Ray Mason Nautilus hull, would never ever part from it. I purchased it from Ray when I was on a business trip in NY years ago.

I refurbished the WTC slightly this spring...so maybe...just maybe she'll get wet again this summer :-)
