About

Hello friends, my name is Johan.
And I´m the founder of U-Boat.

I´m a part-time artist, I like to find and create new things.
I'm from Sweden, a town called Karlskrona, it´s an old naval base located on the mainland in the southeast of Sweden. dating from 17th century, Karlskrona was founded by the Swedish king, Karl XI and therefore the name Karlskrona (Karls - krona), Translated to Charles Crown.
This is a naval town with a long maritime history.
Among other things, we have Sweden's first submarine here in Karlskrona, My and today our submarines, are among the most advanced in the world. 

My city Karlskrona
Our culture unites our naval history so I felt it would have been fun to an art projects in that theme.
Submarines have always interested me, and my dad works at a place called the "Varvet",  it´s a shipyard. There I had the opportunity when I was a kid to get on board a Swedish submarine. And that gave me this idea. Let´s make submarines, it´s a piece of art one can have in the home. I thought about the practicalities of having a secret space inside the sub.
There you can hide a nice bottle of whiskey. 

The U-Boat

Why I´m looking for help here on Kickstarter?
Everything is handmade, and I want to produce the submarines in larger scale.  I need the money to buy better machines that makes it easier for me to make these submarines. But also need funds to start my own shop were I can sell my subs.
My goal is that I be able to release a collection of 1000 submarines in 2016. And I´m only releasing 1000 units per year, from U-001 to U-1000.

Risks and challenges

The risk?
If I don´t get enough money, that means if I don´t get to my goal. I will not be able to afford to purchase some tools that facilitate my work.
That´s my biggest fear. But there is no big risk, because I already have the knowledge how to do it.
