Not bad but I still like Disney's version better. It was such a beautiful combination of Victorian engineering and sea monster.

I have this kit in my stash.

I like Disney's version too!

Although the big puppy from "The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen" looked cool too.

Hmm. I guess the only part of that 1/144 Pegasus Hobbies Nautilus I'd need for gaming would be whatever sticks out of the water (topside) when surfacing. And I'm not sure if the hatches would look right for 15-18mm figures.

I would also hate to chop up a perfectly good model just to toss out the rest. But maybe the rest could be put to use on other vehicles.

PS. Those rivets are a bit huge for 1/144 figures.

The Disney version was the work of art director David Hoff:

Simple but effective paint work. I like either version …

I must agree… the Disney's version is still better.

As for "The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen"…I liked the car…but Wilhelmina "Mina" Harker…is very hot ;-)

Best Regards

As I recall the book version had a triangular steel spike ram, which they used to punch a hole in a US navy frigate Nemo was annoyed with.

Nice model, though the immovable tail fin/rudder assembly doesn't make much sense. Rudders have been around forever, and are easier to do than angling a shafted screw!

But like others, I still prefer the Disney Nautilus. Unfortunately, there don't seem to be any reasonably priced model kits (or even scale pre-made models) available at all. frown
