Amati #1404 Greek Bireme Ship Kit, 1/35 Scale
A fast, maneuverable battleship, the bireme was manned by 44 oarsmen working on two banks of oars, hence the "bi" in bireme. The pointed keel was an effective weapon for ramming enemy vessels in close-quarter battles, as the Persian fleet experienced at the Battle of Salamis.
Great for the advanced beginner modeler.
