Now that the sound design has been nailed, it’s time to nail the props...literally. In order to preserve the look of each compartment, all items need to be riveted or glued to their relevant surfaces. The final effect is amazing.

It isn’t until you touch the authentic looking cigarette packs that you realise they are made of solid plastic. Similarly, marble dust makes for some very realistic looking sugar and the detail put into the fake food in the kitchen area is eye-popping. You’ll swear those sausages are sizzling!

The sheer volume of period everyday objects proved challenging for the team. Of all things, you would have thought that mugs wouldn’t be too hard to source, however the specific mugs used on board HMS Alliance were actually the hardest thing to find! Eventually, after an entire year of collecting items, the latter had to be made especially for the submarine. That same attention to detail has been extended to every single personal item on board.
