  • Sci-fi spaceship transformed into RC submarine

    Some submarines or spaceships in science fiction movies can also be converted into RC submarines, and Seaview is a good example. I have selected some interesting ones that you can download and convert to RC versions with 3D software.
    1.The Nautilus :The Nautilus, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Movie by DONW999 - Thingiverse (Mr. Bob made this beautiful model before)
    2.The Spaceship Yamato:hanadigitalart.blogspot.com
    3.海底軍艦~轟天号(I'm not sure what this thing is in English, I forgot the web address where I downloaded this 3D model before, this 3D file is in SKP format, it would be nice if someone could teach me how to share the 3D file on the forum.)

        Thank you very much, Mr. David, I didn't even know its name before that, and I hadn't seen the movie before. About ATRAGON, it is a fictional Japanese submarine from a long time ago, and I can hardly find any drawings or plans about it on the internet. I have a 3D model of it but I don't know how to share it on the forum yet. You are a craftsman and I guess you will skretch build this submarine. Well I found a high precision paper model of this submarine and the corresponding process,which may help you.

            I've seen videos like this before where the drill bit at the head of the submarine actually rotates!

              Beautiful. Inspirational. It's in the rotation. Should get to it in about 23 years, as there is a queue.

              Thanks for sharing that video, first time I've seen it.

ID:	154425 This is already out there in the thread archives of NDF somewhere- it's probably one of the best operating adaptations of a Sci-Fi spaceship into an RC model sub that I've seen.

                  Really impressive, sir. Check out this site, there are many similar ones in there, made by a Japanese modeler, very interesting.

                  The ones ticked in the picture are transformed into dynamic rc submarines.

                    At first it sounds like a crazy idea but actually the element of water gives these space ships a natural way to move and float. So I can see the point, especially if you observe them from under water or video tape them from under water. I kinda like it.

                      I have good quality 'fan' produced orthographic drawings of the ATRAGON. If you with, I'll copy that material and send it to you. E-mail me your mailing address and I'll fix you up. Here's mine: dmeriman@aol.com

                            Yea I plan on 3D printing the Skydiver sub and making it RC. But that wont be till next year. But the 3D model needs a few more mods to it.
