"An Amazing Kit of the Classic Submarine from 20,000 Leagues"
rkoenn (Brandon, FL)
I've built a few Pegasus models and all have been very good. This was my latest of their kits and it didn't let me down. It is the Nautilus from my title and although not the Disney version it still captures the steam punk flavoring with a great and highly detailed kit. I used Alclad metal lacquer paints to get the metal affect and it really turned out nicely doing that. I also used the ParaGrafix photo etch set which in the end was probably not worth the effort as it really can hardly be seen. I also lit mine using the Voodoo FX lighting kit. The parts fit perfectly and the build was moderately difficult but putting on all the photo-etch brass was a good job of dexterity. Also, when you finish doing it be very careful as moving it around really makes it easy to mess up those railings with your fingers. In the end a highly recommended kit of a classic subject.

"A wonderfully detailed steampunk kit!"
This is a beautifully molded, highly detailed kit. While the submarine has only 83 parts, the level of detail molded into those parts is simply amazing. The deck is loaded with detail, and the large observation windows look in on a detailed interior, and a photo-etch fret and painting masks for the windows are included. The giant squid and rock formation used as a display base for the model is cast in PVC, and is both sturdy and heavy enough to hold the submarine model, and makes for an interesting display vignette. An optional name plate is also included. For those who like to light their models with LEDs, there are lots of possibilities afforded by this kit.

"Best molding I've seen!"
skydog (Arizona)
This kit is something the world has been waiting on for a long time. Note that it is not the movie version (Any movie), but it looks true to the Jules Verne vision. Pegasus farmed out their molding to Trumpeter, and the molding is first-rate, right down to molded anchor chains! Lots of steampunk-style detailing, and a fantastic base that is a project in it's own right. The kit is also very well packaged, with foam padding to protect the fragile and clear parts. It comes with a large photoetch sheet containing railings, cables, grab handles, and stairs. The kit also comes with a masking sheet for the large, high quality salon windows. Assembly is without a hitch and the fit is near-perfect, although the front ram is a bit finicky. I didn't like the look of the photoetch cables and handles, since they're flat and fragile, so I replaced the handles with music wire, and the rigging cables with thread. I kept the cable ends from the PE sheet, which also fit the slots in the hull perfectly. The etched stairs and rails are, not surprisingly, very fragile and fussy. I replaced the molded anchor chain with model ship chain. There are 2 extra capstans included in the kit that are not mentioned in the instructions, and they are perfect for using real chain. I also bought the Paragrafics accessory photoetch set, which comes with a lot of detail parts for the salon, keel louvers, and also has a wheelhouse. I did not use the wheelhouse, because the windows are way too small to see much in that area. I did use the PE nameplate, which I like better than the vinyl one with the kit. This model is just begging to be illuminated. I lit the salon, wheelhouse windows, side portholes, and the keel vents with LEDs. Without lights, most interior detail will never be seen. The squid that makes up the stand, and the kit nameplate, are vinyl, not styrene. They go together well with super glue, and the ten tentacles are keyed so they'll go in the right place. I made the mistake of priming the squid with enamel primer. Enamel and vinyl are chemically incompatible, and the primer never dried. Fortunately, it wasn't hard to remove the enamel primer and repaint with acrylic. If you are prepared to give this kit the attention it deserves, you'll have a stunning addition to your collection. Pros: Fantastic molding, perfect fit Included window masks PE parts included Great packaging Beautiful stand Easy to light if desired Minor Cons: (Nothing that can't be fixed) Interior very dark without lighting Front ram is fussy and fragile PE cables fussy and not a very good fit Vinyl stand needs different techniques

"nice looking model"
Well packged,looks like a bit of a challenge. Take some time to study the directions before I get started.
