Sorry if some of you saw this earlier, but it looks like the video was corrupted somehow. Trying again! This is the latest completed fully functional R/C Nautilus that I've done. Check out my site at www.rc-sub.com for lots more builds and information!

That fog shot was AWESOME!! Now just imagine if you could get tiny people to fit in there, go sea walking and such in mini scuba gear accurately recreated from the movie?!? 🤩🤩🤩

I have an 84" model by William Babbington, but it's not an RC sub (just for display only). Yours looks amazing! Mine also has the docking light for the longboat, but all of the lights have ceased to work now. :-(

I miss the ride at WDW. Would be cool to have one of those subs parked in the yard but I bet they've got a hefty price tag.

Do RC signals have problems as far as penetrating water?
MrFang333333 (2 years ago)

I don't have the sound on because im at work so I don't know if you covered why you dont show it submerging?. I was looking forward to that in your clip. Otherwise, awesome model, it really had the feel of being cast iron and brought back fond memories. thanks for the share.
David Pettigrew (3 years ago)
where can I buy one and how much it cost?
Peter Stegman (3 years ago)
I really do miss some footage at night, submerged with all the lights on.....

First saw 20 K in the early 50's with my Dad. Been a fan ever since. For my money, that boat was and still is, one of the most fantastic designs ever created for a feature film. Thanks for sharing!
jettscream (3 years ago)
Watched the whole video. Very diligent and skilful engineering with pretence. accurate without fawning over the concept. Clear, clean and simply well thought out and built. My respect and admiration to you. A pleasure to share Thanks from Geoff in Norwich England

There's no way that's 66" long. That's 5.5 feet. Unless we measure it different in the UK.  Great model however none the less.
2019 DE (3 years ago)
Can I ask how you created the over all iron is is? look with paint, is there perhaps a site running through it? Cheers.

+RCSubGuy good grief, what a monster. lovely build, squire.
RCSubGuy (3 years ago)
+Frank Ruffolo Actually, that photo is of a kit put out by Stan Sanders that ends up being closer to 7ft when completed. this build was based off of a Custom Replicas 66.5" kit.
Frank Ruffolo (3 years ago)
+Sten43 Since 1977 i thought the very same 'til i saw this pic while i googled the length of said sub :D http://www.rc-sub.com/files/projects/pictures/ee906fa9-1c1f-87ab-3c41-a9d0bf611be6.jpg

No problem. It looks like you've put a great deal of work into it, or should I say 'Her'. ;)
speedy counihan (4 years ago)
Can the lifeboat be removed from its storage area on the stern?
RCSubGuy (4 years ago)
@speedy counihan If memory serves, this particular build had a fixed skiff. Making it removable is exceptionally easy, however. I typically use rare earth magnets to hold it in place in those situations.
molaloi {GSG4} (4 years ago)
do you sell it?
RCSubGuy (4 years ago)
I do commissioned buildups for customers.  This particular model kit is now officially out of production, but I do still have one piece in inventory that is unstarted.  These are definitely custom jobs and R/C subs are typically not sold from "inventory".  I hope that helps!

Now... on to the r/c  Giant Squid and Ned figure that fires his harpoon Also? Will it shock you if you are not authorized to pick it up?
Allen Sohrweid (4 years ago)
Has anyone had the idea of making a 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea Nautilus where it can SINK other model ships? I know part of it has to be metal, but where's the fun in not trying new things?

Your just a little bit Canadian aren't ya? lol

Amazing! I've been wondering for years what happened to the model that was at the entrance of the exhibit at Disneyland. It looked like it was fabricated from brass. Any idea?

This is just perfect. I always wanted a RC model of the submarine as a kid. Well I do not have the skill to build something like this, But I am happy that you have. :) Good work.
Wolfgang Kovac (5 years ago)
Hey, I seen one of these at gold coast hobbies in glenhead, just the top section. The story on it was that it was custom made and 10k but it's 100% this kit, sans workable gill.
RCSubGuy (6 years ago)
I'm not sure what you mean by a "new review". What are you looking for? I'm happy to help in any way I can. Just pop me an email to bob (at) rc-sub dot com and I'll get back to you ASAP.
Alkahest (6 years ago)
Spectacular craftsmanship. It really looks as if it could've been a prop straight out of the film. The fins that rise and lower were a great addition as well -- if that giant squid lurking at 2:11 is any indication, though, you might want to put in an electrical charge feature next.
