This model is a follow-up of the Sea Scorpion. The general shape is derived from that design but I wanted to create a more traditional submarine look and feel. Of course the available parts restrict how well I could do that but I wanted to see how close I could get. I had to make a number of compromises and just going for the generic submarine shape does feel a bit boring to me. The result is quite nice. There is a reasonable color scheme as I made sure the off colors were all in one half and the on ones on the other half. Creating a decent rudder proved to be too complicated with the available pieces so I made some movable exhausts that with some imagination could function similarly. To the top of the submarine I added some extensions because I thought they added a bit more complexity to the design. They can easily be removed as that doesn't hurt the design at all.
