Dry Dock

Building submarines isn’t easy nor tidy — even when dealing with models.  Here is one of my projects in “dry dock” to illustrate the intricate steps in creating one of these boats.  It takes time and patience, because each piece is custom made and check carefully for historic accuracy.  You can order any boat and it is 100 per cent handmade, truly a “unique” piece of military art and history



Steel used to make air intake tubes. .05 sheet brass used for cutwaters. Stainless .003 used for working hatch hinges. 1175 steel rivets installed. Big thank you to SCALE HARDWARE for supply of scale rivets.  I’ve visited this boat several times (it’s housed less than a mile from my home), and have come away astounded after each visit  at the mechanical ingenuity it took to build it during the Civil War.
