This is the Undersea Combat Airtank belonging to Captain Nemo. This compact unit delivers energy and air to help run the suit’s mechanical elements as well as provide oxygen. It was created with the same technology used to build the Nautilus. Victorian elegance, yet functional as well!

Nemo 2Nemo 3This was a scratch built piece by myself. I built the frame to more resemble a Victorian Curio Cabinate that had been repurposed for the Airpack. Here is a link to video to show the Unit actually functioning as pictures only show part of the look.

The Tube light was acquired from Evil Toad Studios. The “Bellows ” engine was a kit from Germany. The multi-colored light was a child’s toy we found at a flea market. I wanted to achieve a similar look to the engine room look from Disney’s 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea.
