1/100th Scale Cut and Fold Kit
In the late 19th Century, few of those who read Jules Verne’s exciting tale of the search for the Submarine Nautilus understood that it was more than just an entertaining fiction. Much of the true story was suppressed by the authorities. Professor Aronnax was in fact an agent of the French Government. By means of the secrets he carried away when the Professor and his party escaped from the Nautilus and from information found at Nemo’s mysterious island base, the French were able to construct an improved copy of the fantastic submarine. This submarine ram, launched in 1889, they named the Narwal. It was the first of several similar submarines launched by the major governments of the world. Their avowed purpose, to hunt down Nemo and his pirate submarine.
Reviresco’s card model kit of this Victorian Science Fiction Submarine is in 1/100 scale, 24.5 inches long by 2.5 inches wide.
This VSF submarine design was inspired by drawings of the Nautilus by Ian Williams. You can see more of his work at: http://www.lanceradvanced.com/Illustration/FanArt/Images/Nautilus.jpg
