A Victorian Science Fiction Submarine Kit

15” long x 4” wide x 4” high

 Once the depredations of the mysterious Captain Nemo and his pirate submarine became public, the seafaring nations of the world went submarine crazy.    The Fate Armaments Company of West Grudger New York began to prepare a submarine vessel of their own.

 The first of the FATE submarines was a side-wheeler which floundered on its maiden voyage.   Fortunately the ship was still in shallow water at the time.  Although the FATE 1 was lost, its crew was rescued unharmed.  

 The second FATE submarine was steam powered and so hot inside that it nearly roasted the crew.    Five minutes into its first test dive it broached, the hatches flew open and the scalded crew jumped into the cold waters of the lake.  The sub fell back into the water; hatches full open, filled with water and sank straight to the bottom of Lake Ontario where it lies to this day. 

 The third FATE submarine however was a success.  This submarine the FATE VSF3 was for several years one of the best small submarines available for export.   Although rejected by the U.S. Navy (because it was too small and not impressive enough for a first rate naval power) the FATE VSF3 saw service with several smaller nations.   Even landlocked Moldavia had one which they floated in Lake Bicaz.  The FATE VSF3 was one of several submarines engaged in the hunt for Nemo and the Nautilus. 

 Reviresco’s kit of the FATE VSF3 features multi-layered .pdfs which offers a choice of four different camouflage schemes and you can turn off or on, the FATE advertising banners on the side of the ship.

 The FATE VSF3 is featured in John McEwan’s game of underwater combat Terror in the Depths.    The rules for Terror in the Depths will soon be available.  Watch for it on this site.

Product Information
File Size:

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
