The Calypso was built in the USA in 1942 as a minesweeper. She was bought in 1950 by Jacques-Yves Cousteau, and after extensive changes and modifications has become a fully equipped ocean research vessel, complete with observation chamber in the stern, oval diving bell, Galaezzi diving chamber, inflatable boat for shallow waters, helicopter and much other submarine equipment. With a length of 42m and tonnage of 360 tons, she has a maximum speed of 12 knots.The ship is named after the Greek mythological figure Calypso. The above Calypso 3d model based on several blueprints and photos i found on web. I hope you enjoy it.
