Customer build gallery
This section of my site is dedicated to showcasing the work of my customers, friends and associates. The work carried out may or may not have been carried out by me in whole or part. I'll try to ensure that adequate description is included with each entry.
If you have a submarine that you'd like to see featured here, please ensure that A) you are a past customer of the Nautilus Drydocks, and B) you email me no more than 9 medium-resolution photos along with a description of your project along with any unique techniques or background on the boat.
The STEAMPUNK PIKE
is the creation of Mr. Martin Helcoop, a scratchbuilt project depicting a fictional steampunk-esque submarine in the shape of a pike fish. The boat was constructed from plastic medium and measures about 40 inches long. It is still a work-in-progress, but will eventually be a fully functioning RC submarine with static diving capabilities.
The STEAMPUNK PIKE - Evolution
is yet another creation of Mr. Martin Helcoop, what he envisioned as being the evolution of the original Steampunk Pike boat above. This boat is constructed of plastic sheet and was designed as a practical surface-running boat. The idea of making it functional was scrapped due to some technical challenges, but the boat remains a fascinating and terrifying design.
