I don't remember if you were there for our Aquanaughts game?
Maybe some inspiration on this thread

I was there for the game. A great game and certainly one of my inspirations for looking into aquatic games :)

To close this thread, prior to starting a new post on my interpretation of VSF underwater warfare, I give you some real Victorian submarines:

Resurgam, 1979:


Holland Class (first Royal Navy operational submarines, based on an American design):





If you are in the Portsmouth area it is well worth a trip to the Sibmarine Museum at Gosport, where Holland 1 is on display and you can even go inside her.

I think I remember seeing a Hello Kitty version of this same sub. Different colored parts but I think the same molds.

There's quite a few card kits floating around on eBay.

This one is 1/35 with an interior. ( if nothing else these sort of kits would give you a set of templates.)

Here's a link to a steampunk submarine I painted in 2014. The sub was available at big box stores in their fish tank supply section. Hope it can be of use.http://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=72585.msg884506#msg884506
