The ”Hobart” aka “Steam jacket kettle” a fictional exploratory surface sub powered by steam was manufactured in the in the late 1800s early 1900s. The Hobart had limited dive capabilities also unable to endure long periods of time due to limited air supply , although the design was adapted to fit future WW1 subs , the Hobart had a front double plated reinforced hull to withhold and inflict damage with ramming capabilities due to lack of payload armament , The torpedoes did not have locomotive capability and were more akin to a naval mine than a modern torpedo. A mechanical boom with a torpedo attached to the end was extended to the opposing ship and then detonated later, the Hobart was retro-fitted for a more conventional war/ battle capabilities .
The main goal was to create an environment that resembles a cast Irion mock up of miniature model on display mounted on top of a white marble mantel in a studio setting .
