(Walt Disney Studios, 1954) This is an impressive 4-foot eFX, Inc. replica modelled by Scott Brodeen and based on Frank Stoos’s original blueprint and numerous reference photos and production stills of the various Nautilus models and sets supplied by the Walt Disney Archives. To build the ship, the Nautilus' longitudinal and cross sectional braces were laser cut from acrylic. This substructure was then assembled and clad in sheet styrene, much like how an actual ship would be built, to form the hull of the boat. Constructed of hand-crafted resin with machined and die cast metal components and injection molded ABS details, this approximately 1/45th scale Nautilus is extraordinarily detailed, including a freely rotating propeller with pivoting rudder, internal and external lighting, and re-creations of both the lush salon and the all-important wheelhouse, affording collectors the opportunity to look into the inner sanctum of this enormous underwater vessel. This Nautilus comes with a removable skiff. Scott Brodeen has personally re-touched and highlighted the haul and redesigned a custom display stand that features squid arms reaching up at the ship.

Scott is well known to Nautilus enthusiasts, not only for his comprehensive knowledge of this iconic submarine, but as a master model-maker as well. He has been involved in several officially licensed models of the Nautilus in his never-ending quest to produce the perfect replica. In addition to having access to the enormous volume of reference material on the Nautilus, Scott has valuable experience working on the restoration of the original 11-foot filming miniature.

This definitive replica of Captain Nemo's Nautilus from 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea is signed by Scott on the custom base. Comes with a plaque and certificate of authenticity from eFX, Inc. In fine condition.
