Default Mobilis in mobili

Its been a while since I posted anything of interest, my interests have diverted from from Star Trek and modern Sci-fi to the older era, The Jules Verne stories in particular, specifically in this case 20000 Leagues Under the Sea and the Nautilus, as a child I first encounter the story from Disney´s excellent and entertaining film in the 1954 film of the same name.

If you have not seen or read it, I highly recommend it.

Mobilis in mobili is the motto used to describe the Nautilus by Captain Nemo or Prince Dakkar as he reveals himself to be in a follow up book by Verne called The Mysterious Island.

Its described as been 70meter long and 8meters wide and I have been building the model to that scale or as close as I can get….. no height is given so I have a free had there…. The Nautilus is also meant to have Hydroplanes to the side somewhere to rise and lower the sub as needed like modern subs.

Its hard to move away from the fantastic design used in the Disney film, designed by Harper Goff who was inspired by the Shark and Crocodile for his approach and very Victorian in feel, I think it worked very very well.


Non the less, This is my design so far. where my only real Harper Goff ref is the curved spar used to ram any ships, serving the need to protect the control room from directly hitting the bottom of a ships keel. I also built a small platform which i slightly curved and in the center of that a small boat position. my problem is making a simple cylinder interesting ….. not that easy …..

At Last an update.

I modeled the hull plating and the Porthole are also in, I will decide later how much more I want to do on them.

The color is temporary, I don´t know if that rusty Iron look is what I want to do.... so doing a little research on the USS Monitor used in the American Civil war.

20.000 Leagues is set in the year 1866
The USS Monitor fought CSS Virginia (Confederate Navy) in the year, 1862.

so I will possibly go for that look more.... but I will see where inspiration takes me

I actually like the one without the cartoon effect better. But they both look good.
