    Apr 8, 2011, 11:29 AM - The Nautilus Home Theatre #1

    This project is a couple of years old and while I've posted pictures of a couple of the replica props, I don't think I've ever posted pictures of the theater itself. My home theater, based on the Nautilus from Disney's 1954 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.

    Holy Smokes! That is a wonderful room! I love it, just perfect, even down to the light fittings. It's the details that really make it, the brass rails around the shelves and the subtle "rust" on the beams. Beautiful.

    The model of the Nautilus in the previous photos was borrowed from a friend for the photo shoot. Here's a newer one that I built up last year from a Custom Replica's kit.

    It's actually a never ending project. The most recent addition, completed just this week. The Ballast Control Lever from the Wheelhouse of the Nautilus. Dive! Dive!

    That is just too fun! I love the speakers! I am surprised that you didn't make the projector box into the parascope.

    That is one of the coolest home theaters I've ever seen.

    I like how you made the nautilus model float.

    Looks great.

    Do you have some of these? If not lemme know and I'll send you off some castings for you to use as accent/details bits around the room if you would like.

    I actually thought about that (even though the Nautilus didn't have a periscope) but I was afraid someone might try to grab the handles and use it!

    I have never seen the film but that is a stunning room! It is the small detail like the plates on the projector and all the fittings that really make it pop.
