German Submarine Pen

I believe this was a matte painting.

This shot was accomplished by ILM, using a 25' remote-control submarine model originally built for 1941.Complete with an animatronic Indy figure clinging to the periscope, they filmed it cruising in the bay from an island off San Rafael. Later the island was replaced with a matte painting for the final shot.

The Submarine Pen was an actual one from WWII, La Pallice in La Rochelle France. Whether or not you can get in there to get a closer look, I am unsure.
