Deepsea Challenger (1:35)

Scale : 1:35
Author : Julius Perdana (free model)
Source : paper-replika.com

A few words about the original:

Deepsea Challenger (DCV 1) is a 7.3-metre (24 ft) deep-diving submersible designed to reach the bottom of the Challenger Deep, the deepest-known point on Earth. On 26 March 2012, Canadian film director James Cameron piloted the craft to accomplish this goal in the second crewed dive reaching the Challenger Deep. Built in Sydney, Australia, by the research and design company Acheron Project Pty Ltd, Deepsea Challenger includes scientific sampling equipment and high-definition 3-D cameras; it reached the ocean's deepest point after two hours and 36 minutes of descent from the surface.

The model can be downloaded from paper-replika.com. The hull is quite nicely designed, but the details are missing, so I completed them according to the available photos... I modified the following things:
- ship screws added to vertical engines
- 3D camera added above the visor
- 4 reflectors added above the visor
- added arms, on the right another 3D camera and reflector, on the left reflector, added cables
-completed robotic arm under the visor, added reflector and cables
- added details and load on both sides of the hull
-added rivets and frames that protect vertical motors and reflectors (wire) and that's about it...
...a few photos:

Fine work on a model of a very unique prototype! Especially with the thrusters and arms.

Very nice work.
It was interesting reading about this vehicle going to the deepest part of the ocean.

...thank you, the model came out nicely and the details took it to a higher level...

the construction itself was not difficult, you just have to be careful when gluing the foil in the central part... in the end I didn't use instant glue, but double-sided tape to stick the foil so as not to dirty it...

...as for the finished details, the arms are made of toothpicks, I drew the lights in photoshop, I made the robotic arm from paper according to the photos...

This is a fantastic model! Nice details and very
special. Reminds me of Guillaume Néry and his
film "One Breath Around the World'.
Thanks for sharing.
