The Nautilus
Captain Nemo's submarine from 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea
About this creation
This what happens when you come back from Brickfest, having seen Lindsay Frederick Braun's really big award-winning ship.....you want to do a big ship.

So I did. being a Disney-oriented person, I wanted to find an iconic shape, and the Nautilus was the first to come to mind.

The project took about two months to finish, from a slow beginning tryng to figure out the conning tower to the finishing, which was slowed down by the Bricklink orders I had to make.

I've always found the ship to be really, really creepy, and you've managed to keep it that way, even if it's in lego! Nice work!

Very impressive! I loved this film (and classic sci-fi and adventure in general) and can really appreciate the time and effort (not to mention money!) put into this; you've done a wonderful job; certainly deserving of being on the front page :) - Dan

Just like the real Nautilus but in lego! I like it! Can you come see my u-boat?
  October 28, 2010
Very good for the fake Nautilus from the Disney movie, but if you wanted to make a true, scaled version of the Nautilus, then your ship would have to be around 6' long using a scale of 2 bumps (and the space between) = 2 feet, around the same scale as the Lego people. Not being rude, just letting you know.

I am loving this, just to the point of erotic. Probably should have kept that to myself, but I am loving this. Spilled my chips all over the place when I first saw this... fantastic job with a hard model, and you stayed so true to form. AND, its minifig scale. Beautiful!

Loved that book, It's one of my childhood favorites. :) You could've made the one from 'League of Extraordinary Gentlemen' and then you wouldn't have had to deal with all that brown.

i had thought on building a nautilus. but i saw it way to complicated , but i must say its an excellent job, you had done there . but maybe you should make some pictures from the inner nautilus. but else, it looks just like it great job. keep it up

Exqusite! I am a massive Verne fan and 20'000 leagues under the sea happens to be one of my fave classics. Seriously, if you've got construction schematics, you sohuld contact LEGO, your Nautilus should inspire them to run a range of masterclass models......starting with this. It is truly AWSOME!

Very impressive. From the side it looks very close to the original. The saw tooth notches also look good. Did you pick brown for your color because you did not have enough black?

Very nice! I like how it's not all upright pieces where lots are done with SNOT building.
