Deep Dive: Scratchbuilding the Confederate submarine H.L. Hunley

Featured in the March 2016 issue

Jayne’s Confederate submarine H.L. Hunley is 1/35 scale and 100% scratchbuilt except for the sailor, which is a Tamiya FAMO figure.

This dramatic aft view shows the sub’s rudimentary rudder. There’s some debate whether the Hunley used a two- or three-blade propeller, but most sources agree on three, thus Dan’s choice. Check out the texture on the prop here.

Jayne gave the model to his photographer friend Chuck Stewart to display. Stewart marvels at Jayne’s work and notes the sub was simply a fun “filler” project between Dan’s various cutaway builds.

"His ‘just for fun’ projects are my ‘never in a million years could I build that’ project,” says Chuck.
