First, determine what kind of submarine you want to build. A scale sub, "toy" sub, or just a "plain Jane" submarine?

You can use PVC pipe and fittings to construct a simple hull, if you want to go that route.

You can also build a mold out of wood, rigid foam, or other material, and lay up some fiberglass over that for a hull.

Or, you can go with a ready made kit to build, which would probably be the best route if this is to be your first sub. I'm currently almost finished with my Revell Type VII conversion (very slow build for me).

You also want to figure out how much you are willing to spend on this project.
