Facing the Flag : HMS Sword Submarine Papercraft

Facing the Flag or For the Flag is an 1896 patriotic novel by Jules Verne. The book is part of the Extraordinary Voyages series. HMS Sword is a fictional experimental submarine, as described by Verne, Sword was a "submersible boat of only twelve tons", carrying a crew of four and commanded by a lieutenant. Her screw was worked by a couple of dynamos fitted with accumulators that needed to be charged in port, and which enabled her to cruise for only one or two days. She was divided into three watertight compartments. The aft one contained the accumulators and machinery. The middle, occupied by the pilot, was surmounted by a periscope fitted with lenticular portholes through which an electric search-lamp lighted the way through the water. The forward compartment was used for passengers. Papercraft designed and created by Pavel Styl who created the Czech Papercraft Churches.
