Nautilus Crew Figures

Just finished up these converted resin 1/32nd Nautilus crew figures for an in-progress 66″ Nautilus. The figures are painted in Vallejo acrylics and sealed — the start of an ongoing project for my friend and client Jeff Porteous. This project is a bit unusual for me in that it’s for an R/C model, however it’s being treated and finished as a display model — the best of both worlds!

009¬† I’m currently working on the Wheelhouse of the Nautilus, the eventual home for these three guys. As you can see in the pic, the “Float tube” (a scratch built piece) is illuminated by a single LED. Ned is just hanging out with Nemo and crewman.

Jeff belongs to and promotes the “SubCommitee” a great source for all Submarine modelers! here’s the link¬† although the site is mostly focused on R/C modelling, there’s plenty of static Submarine subject matter here, great source!
