I was in the middle of reading Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea by Jules Verne when I suddenly wanted to do something with my hands.
I admit, this is probably extremely geeky, but I attempted to create a lego model of Captain Nemo’s submarine, The Nautilus.
Considering the limited number of legos I had to work with, I think my creation came out well.
Instead of the large panels that open up to show the sea, located in the saloon, I put large semi-circular windows near the stern that would serve same purpose.
“The sea was distinctly visible for at least a mile around the Nautilus. What a spectacle, unrolled itself before us! What pen could possibly describe it?” Pg. 109, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea
I thought I was doing really good with my lego collection until I came across this lego model, which trumps mine. To add insult to injury, then I found this amazing lego scene of the giant cephalopod attack and ensuing battle.
