That is a fantastic model of the Nautilus!

It is amazing to me how the design in that 1954 film remains so influential and inspiring half of a century after its premier.

That said, I defiantly had other influences in designing and building this dollhouse version of the Nautilus, most especially the prints by Alphonse-Marie-Adolphe de Neuville in the original French editions. The engine room for my Nautilus comes right from his lithographs.

I love that it is a doll house, I love the figures you made for it too. Supper cool!! I was just reading how you have 4-5 thousand brads in it! I had around 5 thousand in mine own...and that was just tedious ...never ending work!
