Have not done much these days; still looking for a display case as a permanent destination for Birema.
Wondering f you guys have any suggestion about glass thickens for display case? I would need to have, with app measurements:
24"x13"x5mm = for sides; 14"x13x5mm = for other sides and for top 24x14"x5mm

Do yo think thickness of 5mm is too much? Can i get a thinner glass like 3mm? I will have a wooden frame to hold all together.
On the other token i am still wrapping up shields for mighty hoplites...

A great looking ship, I have enjoyed following your build. I like the way you have the Oars at slightly different heights and lengths, it looks much more realistic that way,
Cheers Andy

I use 5mm acrylic for display cases and did some posts on building one at the end of my HMS Snake build log. I prefer these because it dispenses with the need for the wooden frame and, I think, looks a little less obtrusive - but that is obviously my own personal choice. Might be an option for you to think about. Regards.

Today i completed shields for my Greek hoplites; there is some room for touchups thanks for photo.. But they are ready to take place on bireme.

Also, i ordered some glass to start building display case. Need to preserve properly those long hours in build.

Happy modeling.
