    Hi,all. I recently completed the Schreiber-Bogen Greek Bireme kit. As I recall, someone else here built it (and did a better job), but I went back a few pages and didn't see the thread.

    I have converted the ship from full hull to waterline, depicting the ship in fighting trim with masts/sails removed. I made the oars from craft shop pins, otherwise it's original.

    Sailors and marines are 15mm Xyston. For those with patience, the model has some utility for wargaming, not to mention being a lot cheaper than pricey resin models.

    Very nice.
    Construction looks clean. As so many say... "that's paper?"

    I built it too last year (before joining Zealot) and thought it a well-designed model. Someone else must have thought so, too, since it was stolen from a display table.

    Your build and presentation is very well done. Where do the figures come from?

    Thanks, guys. I agree, the model is simple but well-designed. Clear instructions and no fit problems.
