Greek Bireme 6Th Century B.C. 1/72 Dusek D001

Now that I have finish a series of 10 figurine and 2 military kit
Here my new ship project a gift that I receive at Christmas
I think it is the first model produce by Duseck

Not very much in the kit 2 scale drawing sheet and a small instruction booklet
The wood look to be of good quality

So here we go I want to do this one before going back to the Royal Louis1.JPG2.JPG3.JPG4.JPG

Yes they where using pine tar and the wood was mosly green not cure for the battle of Alalia in 540BC
Also no slave on those ship for the oar men that fight along the soldier in close combat

Dusek provide a gold string that is not valid so I will use what I have in reserve

The fabric provided for the sail is quite good after having left the white fabric soaked overnight in a solution of ink and water and drying well crumpled the fabric sewn and installed on the yard

Ok the model
Dusek D 001 probably the first 001 model of Dusek
Not an issue
All in all a nice little model easy to do.
The instructions are really basic and deserve to be elaborate a little more but overall simple and relatively easy to understand and I have fun that's what counts.

And back to the Royal Louis
