Her Majesty's Submersible Atlantica

The first submersible vessel to cross the Atlantic without recourse to surface passage, the Atlantica became a potent symbol of Imperial naval power.

    I've been a huge 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea fan since I was a kid who grew up with the classic Disney movies and always wanted to build a Nautilus. I tried a few times and never got a design that even came close, scrapping most of my work. This creation; however, is a beautiful rendition or "Nautilus-like" creation that has a style of its own with the shorter design. The size works well for the minifigs and I really like the use of the upside down hull pieces - very clever. The combination of dark grey and brown adds to the more classic look of the ship and I esp. like the forward bubble window design. The brown arches/curved pieces are a nice touch to create additional detail. Your image/presentation compliments this beautiful creation nicely and inspires me to try building one again. While not a "scary creation", for the mystery surrounding the movie Nautilus and belief that it was a sea creature, I invited this to the LEGO Halloween group - thanks for adding. Excellent build!

    ^ Cheers mate. Thanks for the detailed comment - much appreciated. I too am a massive fan of the movie. I'm seriously considering building a full scale Nautilus. We'll see.
