I completed this Roman warship with a different color scheme; somewhat fanciful but it was a fun build and good practice. 

The box says it’s 1:250 scale but this cannot be true. Most estimates run between 1:72 and 1:100; the shields on the side can’t be much smaller than 1:72. I think it’s a poorly scaled kit with plenty of problems, but it is a fun build open to one’s interpretation. I decided the oar box must be there for a second bank of oars, so I installed all of them on one side. Easier to display that way. 

Dont look too hard or you’ll notice some problems like major seam lines; I assure you these are only an artifact of the photography and not on the real ship ;)

Thanks Meriadoc;


That's an interesting model, and looks well made and colourful, however dubious its historical value might be. Thanks for posting this. 


By the way, something tells me that you are an admirer of Tolkien; can't think what!


All the best,


Mark P
