The Nautilus

1/144 The Nautilus (Pegasus)

Last year I read “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea” by Jules Verne.  I really enjoyed the book and its characters, but of course being a ship modeler, I had to build the submarine.  Pegasus has a relatively new kit of the Nautilus that is a lot closer to the book’s description than the more well known Disney version.  The kit is extremely well made and is very detailed.  It captures the boiler-plate feel of 19th century machines.  I added lights and finished it in a rusty metallic appearance.  It really was a pleasure to build.
