  1. After finishing my first scratch build - VOC Retourship Batavia - I will now start with something completely diffirent, a Greek Trireme. Trireme means literally three oars - three rows of oars placed above each other. For one of my sons, who is studying archeology and has a great interest in the ancient Greek culture I already made a Bireme - two oars. This one is in scale 1:35. The European modelbuilder Krick also has a Trireme in its program, so we decided to buy and built this one: But this is in scale 1:72 and built it will be about 51 cm long. About the same as the Bireme. So we decided to lay the kit aside and use the plans to upscale the thing to 1:35 scale - making it twice as big as the Bireme, but in the same scale. This means a model of over 1 meter (3 ft) and making everything yourself - keel - bulkheads - planking etc. Therefore this topic in the scratch-build section. First step to do was to upscale the plans, with my copier and some old fashioned carbonpaper: After that the jig saw and after sawing and fitting the first result:
  2. Hiya Folks, Just read the log guidelines and just opening my log. Hope I've complied with the forum rules. Received my model today via UPS. Only my second build and first on here in front of an audience!!! Hope it goes well. Hoping to have it completed in a couple of months - work permitting. However setting deadlines is probably the worst thing I can possibly do. Deep breaths ... Next step gonna complete an inventory on the parts/materials and instructions and give first impressions later or tomorrow. Thanks Sean
  3. This seems to be the only available trireme kit. It is from a new Czech company - Dusek. I brought the kit because it is a trireme and curiosity about this new company's offering. The kit turn out to be much better than I expected. The laser cut bulkheads were nicely done, They fit perfectly without any adjustment. The plywood quality is very good. The laser scored deck verneer sheet was a surprise and superbly done. The wood verneeer quality is also top quality. The kit comes with a simple(not a tone of wording), yet effective illustrated instruction booklet. The 1 to 1 ratio plans made the built easy. There is one area the kit is lacking. The bow shape and the kit provided metallic ram is not satisfactory. Modification will need to be done to bring the model's bow to the correct shape (There is a modern full size reconstruction of the Greek Trireme- Olympias, which provides a very good reference for this- GOOGLE it)
