Here´s the progress (still something to do). It will stay a bireme (looks better with only two rows of oars). Maybe the Romans had a few biremes in stock before building the triremes for the battle :mrgreen: ...
The oars and the tiny rigging parts are from zvezda... nearly impossible to produce them on my own.

I had seen the beginnings of this ship but hadn't checked the thread for a while. That's some great-looking work you did!!! Now all it needs is a crew. ;-)

The ship looks very good, better than any old 1:72 trireme-sets. :cheers:

I like it!

Here is the start of the carthaginian warship. Because I´m bulilding just one half of the ship, spectators will be able to see inside...
