Up for Auction: Solid Model of - Disney's Nautilus Submarine?25 Oct, 2004
Q: How did you go about creating this model?
|Doug Rogers' solid model of Disney's Nautilus submarine, created using PTC's Pro-Engineer software.|
Q: What was your workstation setup?
A: You're not going to believe this: a Sony Vaio laptop with 14.5" screen, AMD Athlon 1600 processor, 512MB RAM, and 30GB hard drive. The only upgrade to the setup was an additional 256MB RAM.
Q: What's response been from the Ebay community?
A: I've sold about 30 copies of the model since first posting the item on Ebay in mid-September, mostly to Nautilus buffs. I had one customer tell me he pasted a wall with the drawing. The strongest feedback I've received has been from fellow engineers who have an idea of the skills and effort required for the modeling.
Q: Have you produced models of any other nontraditional projects?
A: Two Star Trek Enterprises - 1701 and 1701E - both without internals; a partially completed British King George V-class battleship; and currently, a P51B Mustang that will have a complete internal structure, including a Merlin engine.
