Wow, now that is nice! I don't see much difference between this Nautilus and the Goff one when it comes to the tail and stern. I really do like to hear from someone who knows more about this version. Leelan, do you have the artist's e-mail? :)

Uck!

Very ugly IMHO.

None of the grace of Goff's version, or the rugged charm of the ABC boat.

That saloon window wouldn't withstand water pressure too well- looks like a greenhouse!

I would really like to speak to the creator of this virtual..... model, looks like more surfing to do! :)

P.S.: Andy, I do have to agree with you on one point, I don't think that ram is going to last after a ramming, you will either find snaped metal bars in the front, or broken glass for one thing. We wouldn't want that to happen would we? :D

I like it (sorry Andy), perhaps only because of the extensive details that have gone into it.

Be a heck of a scratchbuild.

Hmmmm.......

You bet! I think that the strange looking half cylinder shaped structure on the deck is the longboat compartement. I still have no idea how they can steer the sub, the front glass windows are pointed towards the side, how can they see the front?

Sorry Captain!

I don't even know the artist's name. It was posted to the NAUTILUS Fans Group on Yahoo. I thought it was neat enough to share here as well.
