Completed – Summer 2013. This model was started by me about 10 years ago, but sat idle until last year when Mrs. handsawgeek got disgusted with it and finished it!

OK, I too have built a couple of ships. Glad to see someone else interested. Nice rendition !!! Thanks for showing it.

I have had this yearn to build a Greet trireme. Coming up in September, 2,500 years ago at the Battle of Salamis. This ship’s design, along with it’s fleet commander/ tactician, with the fighting men of Greece, both land and water. Fought a battle literal altered history, to what we are, and have today.

Great project! I had just this last week watched a show and this ship was talked about. They sure reinvented the wheel with this one.

Ed, Your picture has become my mystery question of the day for a few friends of mine that, like me, are sponges for learning of all types, especially history.

I learned about the Turtle Ships decades ago in one of my history courses and your model brought all of it flooding back.

I hope you don’t mind, if so, I will delete it.

Ask and you shall receive!

This isn’t the original post. That was so inundated with junk from some, ahem, addled personages, that I had to delete it.

If you can’t enlarge it enough I’ll post it to my website and you can enlarge it there.

There’s an enormous model of that ship in a glass case in Los Angeles City Hall. A gift to the City from one of her Chinese Sister Cities.
