Dear Cryns,
Schade, dass das Schiff nicht so will wie du willst. Dafür wird es dann noch schöner. Weiterhin gutes Gelingen.

Much of the additions you can see here in this next picture are made to simplify molding and casting.
To reduce costs of time and money I try to cast as much as possible (as acceptable for the final modelresult) in one single silocone mold.
The wooden sheets under the beams (footrest banks) will make it possible in the end to pull the resin cast out of the mold.
Also the small pieces of wood between the ribs in the hull sides are for enabling the casting. Nothing of these assisting pieces will be visible in the final model.
If I don't do this, I end up with endless numbers of tiny separate resin parts that may not fit the shape of the hull after casting.
It all has to be adjusted by hand one by one before I can sell a model.

Thanks for the nice words dear Stenfalk and Dirk.


The most important element of a merchant ship is its CARGO though its often missing in already existing shipmodels.

Where to stuff the cargo in a merchant galley?
The obvious place is under the front-deck and rudderman-deck.
But a scale 1:1 sailing experiment with a replica histroric ship made clear that when there is too much weight in the front of the hull, the ships is loosing speed and is unable to row forwards against a medium sea wind. And moving against the wind should be the elementary advantage of a merchant galley compared to a sailing ship.
This means heavy load, like amphorae, ingots and milling stones, have to be stored in the back of the hull.
Light stuff like bales of wool and canvas should be in the front.
Only the space under the frontdeck and backdeck of the ship is not big enough.
Cargo must have been stuffed between the rowers and under the rowing banks too.
This is my best attempt:

After adding the rowing banks again, its tricky to find the rowing figurines unable to sit on all this stuff.

The next question is how to reach the front deck from the ruddermans deck?

By taking steps, from about 1 meter each, over the rowing banks?
Its dangerous when the banks are wet and the ship is moving wildly.

It could also be done by building walking planks at the inner board sides, since rowers never sit against the board, there should be 50cm at least between them and the pivot point of the oar.

But I chose for a third option: the central walkway.
The problem now is how to pass the mast. And how to pass the brail beam blocking the front of the ruddermans deck with ten wooden pins and diagonal lines.

I made the brail beam low enough to step over it.
