For the past two years, 62-year-old Zhang Junlin has been tinkering away at an old warehouse, building a submarine with his friends. Now, fast forward into 2014, Zhang and his crew are about to take their puppy on its inaugural dive.
ChinaNews brings us this series of photos of Zhang's submarine, named Shenlong Number 3. Over the years we've posted about some crazy Chinese inventions and the like, from homemade space shuttle replicas to Transformer statues made of trash. Zhang's submarine definitely ranks as one of the best.
