Nautilus Submarine Art Car – Five Ton Crane

The Nautilus project is an artistic experiment and collaboration between Christopher Bently, Sean Orlando and Five Ton Crane. It is a land-based submarine weighing in at 11,000 pounds (dry) with a top speed of 13 mph. The base vehicle is a 2005 Eagle TT8 diesel AWD airport tow tractor, designed to tow 90,000 lbs airplanes. 25? long, 100? wide, 11’6″ tall

I designed and built the interior staircase and the exterior railings on the Nautilus in collaboration with members of Five Ton Crane.
