Overlord's VSF Mini-sub
« on: October 19, 2011, 09:39:11 PM »
I've finally found a bit of hobby time, for the first time in ages.  I decided to build a submarine for the 'Clash of the Aquanauts' game at BLAM next month.  Not sure I will get to play as I will will be running a game at the same time for at least part of the day, but decided to build it anyway. Great inspiration for my build from the fantastic creations by Andy and Colin: http://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=24709.0

Built by the Royal Navy to hunt for the Nautilus, this class of attack submarine is able to use it superior manouverability and small size to swarm its larger prey.







It is smaller than the previous craft that have been built, but I wanted to do something slightly different from what had gone before.

The main body is part of a display stand for a wristwatch that is a handy oval shape.  Stuck on the back of this is the lid from a bottle of one of Mrs Overlord's myriad potions!  Most of the rest is plastic card, with a couple of metal washers, a small wooden sphere (cut in two) and a metal hatch I had lying around.

I rather enjoyed constructing this and it has become Mrs Overlord's favourite thing I have built!  :D
