In 72scale the interscalium of the Olympias, from bench to bench / oarlock to oarlock, has around 12mm, what is the measure between your oarlocks?
The measurement in my shipmodel from oarlock to oarlock is 14mm.
Though I am aware in the old literature a space of 1 meter per rower is usually given which should be around 12mm.
I had two reasons to add extra milimeters.

Most important is my figurines are too big. They simply don't fit into a 12mm space, which I discovered when I build my first rowing boat.
Like most other 1:72 figurines, mine are between 23 and 25mm instead of between 20 and 23mm.

Also I read a theory making a difference between a wargalley and a merchantgalley.
For the wargalley like Olympias every centimeter of space reduction is advanteous in an attempt to cram as much musclepower in a shiphull as possible.
With a merchantship, this was less important since such wide hulled galley was not very fast anyhow and did not have to ram an enemy ship.

I designed this ship with the 'start of stroke rowers' in mind. Most of them fit banks, oars and feetrests pretty well.

The 'end of stroke rowers' fit too. But less perfect. Also their arms position must be lowered. Which is possible since its soft metal including partly separate arms:

With Your 14mm and the wide benches, You can shift the figurines in the correct position. So there are some "invisible" tolerances with the measures which deletes some inaccuracies. I think this is clever, it fits very well.

Thank you Wolfgang and Frankzett.

Aiming at some customers who are primarily intersted in the nautical aspect of shipmodels (and not in flatbottomed waterline ships embedded in epoxy water with figurine crews on board) I cast an additional resin bottom for hull and keel for the Holkas Merchant ship, looking like this:

A dream made of resin! You're one of the most ingenious shipbuilders of antiquity, I have to give you that!

Thank you so much dear Stenfalk, Frankzett, Entrauner and Dirk, for your nice words. :D


Stenfalk, I painted your Shami goats because I planned to add them to my Holkas ship as part of the cargo, on their way to a far Greek Colony.
I had not made up my mind to place them at the bottom floor of the hull, on the front deck or in a cage placed upon the beams and other cargo.
