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
