this is a minifig scale model of the Scubster, a human powered wet submarine.
to put it simply: this is like an underwater pedalboat.
wet submarines are not pressurized: the pilot has to wear scuba gear.
depth limits are therefore limited by human factors.
scubster won the innovation prize at the 2011 international submarine race in Bethesda, Maryland, USA.

a photograph of the actual submarine, with its latest cockpit.
it is piloted by Stéphane Rousson.

the actual shape of the model is slightly different from the real submarine, and wanting a minifig scale, compromises where made.
i hope it somehow manages to capture its spirit...
when the pilot is inside, he leaves his fins attached to the access panel.
