I'm not a fantasy or sci-fi gamer, but Jules Verne has a special place in my heart, and I love seeing such lovely results of other people's work in the craft of making miniatures.

Found during a Google search that landed me on this page:

YA, thanks for posting this. Followed the link and there are some great modeling links. Really impressive work.

What a whale of a tale….

Very nice. It also just reminded me of a wonderful painting I saw in the art show at the recent PhilCon SF convention. It shows the Nautilus lining up to ram…. the Titanic!

Saw 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea twice in the theatres in the 70's when I was a kid and just loved it.

Thanks for bringing back memories!

And people complain about the "Holden Maneuver" in Last Jedi…

I can't find a waterline Nautilus anywhere on line. I'd love to have one in 1/1200 or 1/1000 scale (though I'd also take one in 1/600 if I could find one). Anyone else?

I'm guessing the one in this diorama was handmade, since it's based on the Disney version, and Disney keeps all of its copyrights in deepest perdition.

The ship is a Pyro/Lifelike USS Constitution which is roughly 1/600.

I have a Christmas Ornament of the Disney Nautilus it's 5 inches long and it came out in 2011.

I think it's the Nautilus made by Comet Miniatures. OOP.

Might be the Hallmark Nautilus; I'd have to dig mine out to try to compare, though difficult as the focus on the image is a bit challenging to me.
