Paul Kreutzer has provided an illustrated narrative on the analysis behind this design. .The dive planes are incorporated crack palisade decision tools 5.7 in horizontal fins on the aft hull forward of the tail and aft of the dorsal fin. .See an image of the poster here.Overall this is a robust, steampunky version of the classic Nautilus. .O ne of the most carefully executed depictions of the Nautilus I've seen is Ron Miller 's design in all his Unicorn editions. .Most noticeable is the open frame vertical fin. .There is no dive plane amidships, but on the upper aft hull, arrays of three fins with a tab control surface at the aft end of each. .Click here to see more of Greg's Nautilus drawings.A rtists are faced with the problem of presenting something different when doing covers for new editions of 20,000 Leagues under the Sea. .The hull is spindle-shaped but shown with rounded ends in some drawings. .Overall, the appearance is less threatening than graceful but powerful, a beautiful sea monster. .The underwater views of the Nautilus are less accurate.The performance or specific impulse of black powder is low, around 80 seconds.
