A 56 yearold enthusiast has constructed a 36ft long, awesome Nautilus replica. For those who did not know already, the Nautilus is the submarine featured in "20 000 Leagues Under the Sea" by Jules Verne. Danny McWilliams built the replica at his home which is located in Ellijay, Georgia. Mr McWilliams is a long time fan Disney's "20 000 Leagues Under the Sea" movie and this is where he got his inspiration. He has spent approximately a year working on the replica and he is almost finished. The replica is not seaworthy, it is intended to be a model of the submarine only.
Danny decided to build a replica of the submarine based on the 1954 Disney version of "20 000 Leagues Under the Sea" . He plans to donate the replica to a museum in Florida when it is complete. He has included all of the memorable details of the movie submarine including portholes shaped like bowls and an imitation propeller. This is not the only replica of the Nautilus that has ever been built but it is a cool one. This guy built a huge replica, really just because he felt like it. Well why not hey? Feel free to build your own giant replica and send us the pictures. ;)
