This is the Jules Vern 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea Nautilus Submarine model be Pegasus.

The submarine portion is plastic, with brass photoetch that's included with the model. The base and squid are a vinyl material (and require CA glue).

When finished, the kit is around 12 inches long.

The multi-facted windows are complex, but Pegasus gives you paint masks for them. This is tedious work, but makes the glass windows look spectacular once done (I painted mine a brass / copper color).

Assembly of the sub model is straight forward. Some pieces do look alike, so study the directions carefully to get the right ones in the right places.

The interior can be detailed out with paints and chalks as I have done. The interior is visible through both sides of the glass windows. Though wthout interior lighting, it's hard to see once the model is assembled.

I painted mine a rust color. The squid and base are done in various paints, once a primer was applied to cover the vinyl material.

The brass photoetch parts are fragile, and being made of soft brass (rather than steel), and are easy to bend. Which is good to get them in place, but bad if you bump them, because that will bend them at random. And they're hard to get straight again when needed.

Overall, it's a spectacular model subject, and just plain cool.
