Here is the hull completely assembled. The white section you see in the center is the 17cm I had to add to bring her up to 70 meters in 72 scale. I guess the paper kit is not quite accurate.
you see behind my NAUTILUS
is supposed to be in the same scale. But the SKIP
model at 105cm long only comes out to 75.6 meters. The real SKIP
was 77. My N
measures at 70.5cm. She is .5cm too long while the SKIP
is about 2cm too short. Oh well. Nobody's perfect.
It's a bit crazy when you think it --- just how close Jules Verne came in his design! They are very nearly the same submarine.
