Monturiol Ictineo II Steam Power Submarine Wood Half Model 28 Long Scale Model
An incredibly cool handmade wood half model of Ictineo II. A steam powered wooden submarine originally built in 1864 by spanish engineer Narcis Monturial. The original sub was powered by coal powered steam engine on the surface and an air independant (powered by a chemical reaction) steam engine under water. Think about this for a minute! Thats absolutely amazing and totally nuts! This model is 28″ long and 8″ tall, and is mounted solidly to a mahagony base. It was made from kiln dried mahagony and is strip planked. This was a model store display/sample piece for customers who wanted to order a custom wood model. All the gold colored pieces and other internals are plastic. Its got a great look. On one side the red mahagony hull offers a really good looking imitation of the old sub and is beautiful in its own right. The other side is an interior cross section that shows the steering, cumbustion and other internal systems. Its a piece of art! Its just a super cool piece. It is the only half model of its kind for sale that I know of. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day. If you are located in Washington Oregon or Idaho I will drop it off personally or you can make arrangements to meet me.
