  • Disney Nautilus Plans

    This question is for Bob, as I understand he is the resident expert on the Disney Nautilus. I'm looking for detailed drawings for the Disney Nautilus , possibly in 1/32 scale. This is for a future collaborative project to build a pair of them here in San Angelo.
    Thanks

        RC of course. Plan is to make up a hull plug in 1/32 scale My buddy Carl and I will make a pair of hulls.

          Excellent. Here's how to make it practical in pitch and yaw without destroying the scale fidelity of the subject:

            I don't know that I have anything done in 32nd scale. Online plans are the best that I have access to as well. I've got really old dwg files that I built my first scratchbuilt Nautilus from, but they're somewhat inaccurate.

              Wikinger Modellbau has laser cut hull frames in 1/32 scale. I was planning to start with that. make up a plain hull plug without details and pull a mold for working hulls, then proceed with details. This is a long range plan, as I have several projects to complete first. I love the steerable screw, I can see how it would solve some control problems.

                I wonder if anyone has ever worked out a helicopter like swashplate variable-pitch propeller to do the job without actually angling the propeller... Underwater cyclic pitch..

                  … thought I was the complexity worshiper!

                      LOL. Now that is an aspect of model building I truly wish I had the time for. Oh, well. Born too early.
