Nautile

NAUTILE

Scale: 1:? (estimated about 1:50)
Author: L.Jakubčo
Source: Book "PAPIEROVÉ MODELY"

Nautile is a manned submersible owned by Ifremer, the French Research Institute for Exploitation of the Sea. Commissioned in 1984, the submersible can be operated at depths of up to 6 km (3.7 mi).Nautile is capable of housing three people. She has a length of 8 m, still imaging cameras, two colour video cameras, and a number of flood lights. She is fitted with two robotic arms to allow remote manipulation. Nautile can stay under water for up to eight hours at a time. Two ships can act as mothership to Nautile: Pourquoi Pas? and Atalante. In its early days Nautile was launched from RV Nadir.
The vessel has been used to examine the wreck of the RMS Titanic and to search for the black boxes from Air France Flight 447 (source:wikipedia.org)

Not that it was a bad model, but your detail really adds to it.

Thanx
The submarine is finished, I added some details. I made the protective frame around the radar, the hanging eye, the antenna...On a functional beacon with frame I used a LED from a tombstone candle that blinks red...now I'm going to make a pad.
