This model is based on an idea from the instructions book. Like the Iota 02 it has a detachable setup, albeit in a much more simpler way. Although once detached the viewing submersible lacks thrusters, while the docking submersible lacks viewing elements. Combined it does look nice as the docked submersible fits and improves the shape of the overall submersible.

This is a fairly simple model. Nevertheless there were some puzzles and issues as the picture from the book showed a supposed setup for the docking submersible that I could not reproduce exactly with the given parts (and there are plenty of parts in this set). The side elements I only managed to work out by being created. The lower backend gave me the biggest headache to be able to create the corresponding dimensions of the picture, so much of that is my own creation. Nevertheless I like a challenge and getting it to work and look satisfyingly made me happy enough.
