SSRN Seaview
The glass nosed submarine from "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea"
About this creation
SSRN Seaview is the name of the fictional submarine from the 1961 movie "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea" and the 1964-1968 series of the same name.

Seaview’s hull was designed to withstand a depth of 3600 feet (1 km), and in one episode survived a depth excursion approaching 5000 feet (1.5 km). The transparent-hull "window-section" bow of Seaview was not rounded like a traditional submarine but was faired into a pair of manta winglike, stationary bow planes (in addition to her more conventional sail planes). The aft had unconventional, lengthy, V-shape planes above the twin engine area. In the TV version's second season, for emergencies, a pair of sliding metal "crash doors" shut across the face of the bow's observation deck to protect the four-window transparent surface.

The Lego version of the Seaview incorporates Lego 9V lights to illuminate the observation windows and, with some minor adjustments, can accommodate a motor with propeller so it can move independently in water.

I used to be obsessed with submarines, this one in particular. I grew up watching re-runs of the show; seems quite corny now, but enjoyable at a young age. Great work.

...The best Seaview MOC yet & Great use of "2 x 4 plates with Grilles" for the upper hull/deck/ballast tank vents.

Very neat! Ive never seen that sub before, but it looks really smooth. I like the whole shape, it looks very sleak.
