    Steampunk Submersibles!

    These are a few Victorian Era Submersibles I completed while working on [I]Virgil: The Ragtime Relic[I]. The first is [I]H.M.S. Narwhal[I] which is more of a recreation/exploration submarine. The second is the Seppuku, which is used to slice the belly of a ship, sink said vessel, and carry away precious cargo unnoticed while masquerading as a sea monster/hell-bent-crustacean. Both are part of a larger narrative and feature functioning parts. Enjoy!

    Oh man, now your talk'n. These are both beautiful, great job. I love this stuff.
    I just finished a steampunk waterfountain over on the sculpture forum if you want to take a look. But your stuff is great.

    Yahooooo! Love this! Great design, very high class clean builds. Beautiful. What scale are these?

    Fantastic pieces! - What are their dimensions, how long did it take to make them and what materials did you use?

    Phenomenal work. Are these actually water tight or remotely operable? They don't need to be; I'd put any of them in the middle of my living room and tell everyone it's the coolest piece of art I own.

    Smokenmirrors- Thank you, I appreciate it!

    Mah' Crub- Thanks. I enjoyed your steampunk fountain, keep it up!

    Waipunga- The Narwhal is about 15" L x 13.5" W x 15" H and the Seppuku is about twice the size of the first.

    jfwalls- Thank you for the kind words.

    idun- Thank you. The Narwhal is about 15" L x 13.5" W x 15" H and the Seppuku is about twice the size of the first. They both took about 3 weeks to make (although I was working on other peices at the time as well), using brass, copper, steel, and assorted scrap metal.

    NewmanD- I appreciate it!

    moh- Thank you! The Narwhal is watertight, the hatch on the Seppuku opens to reveal the cockpit, so that one would not be. The propellers and parts move.
