« Part 155: Nautilus 20000 thousand leagues under the sea #2 & 3 Part 156 of Toy Construction series Part 157: Nautilus 20000 thousand leagues under the sea #5 1/2 »

Working on the wings [flippers?]
None of the wings are glued in, just in the groove waiting for final shaping.
Just showing the pictures as I got things done.

I should add the whole model is made in maple.

Starting to sand and smooth things out.

I’m at a stand still trying to figure out a way to make the teeth [front ripper saw teeth].Aaaaa!!!!!!!!!!

That is really taking shape #4, and for a landlubber I am enjoying this build more than I imagined (and I have a good imagination).

PS.
