Number 1: nice design. Nice new take on a classic. Number B - yes, they were called "screws" but that was just the old name for "propeller" - they never used helical "screws" like wood screws! But, "The League of Extraordinary Gentleman (and one dead lady)" got it wrong, too. =( Number III: the text describes a retractable conning tower and a powerful electric searchlight. Numbre quartre : Good placement of the ram. The text's description of the Nautilus as "spindle-shaped" put the ram too low to match the wound made in the Abraham Lincoln. Finally, good placement of the salon viewport - she could cruise the surface but Nemo'd still have a swell view of his underwater realm.

Thank you. :) I tried for a new design with animalistic styling, while keeping the submarine feel to it.

Very nice. While it invokes the feel of the Disney version, which I feel is much more classic than the one in LOEG, it has a unique feel to it.

I really like the design of the screw.

Neat! I like the swordfishy aspect of this. It does a great job of evoking Harper Goff's details while taking the shape in a new direction. What's you plan once the design is completed? Are you going to model it?

I wish I could, but I'm not a good 3D modeler. Plus I don't have the program, lol.

it looks like a mixture of other nautilus designs i've seen - there is a definite hint of organic sea monster - its streamlined and sleek.

i love it
