following your mention of Jules Verne, and there is a good clockwork submarine model of the Nautilus. see above.
It doesn't get as much of a mention as 20,000 leagues, but he also wrote two books, Robur the Conqueror and Master of the World, which were filmed in 1961 as "Master of the World" with Vincent Price as mad inventor Robur.
It has a great flying ship, "The Albatross". I would recommend the film, which I think is on YouTube.
