This beautiful ship inspires the imagination! I would now like to watch a documentary about this era or an old "Sinbad the Seafarer" movie...
Beste Grüße,

Then you should have a look here, a French documentary about the life size reconstruction of A FUTURE RELEASE MODEL IN MY PLANNING: The Gyptis, a sewn-wood constructed Greek ship found in Marsala (Marseilles) France dating back to the 6th century BC.

ANCIENT ROWING BOATS, LIFE BOATS OR FISHING BOATS

Meanwhile I finished three models of small boats. I made single block silicone moulds to cast them in one piece. So its easy and fast to cast and it keeps the price low for any one who can use one for his own diorama. Only the oars, paddles and rudder-oars are extremely difficult to cast and bring the price up again. There are steel rods inside all of them to prevent them from breaking.

Brilliant Mr C!

I love the reclining chap.

A glass of something cool would seem appropriate.

Really nice figures to compliment the vessels.

Best wishes,

Chris

Die Boote sind fantastisch! Jetzt kommt noch hinzu, dass die tollen passenden Figuren ja schon vorhanden sind. Ein großer Sprung für den Antike-Dioramenbau in 1/72!
Liebe Grüße, Wolle

This figurine is raising confusion for a few years now :lol:
One person sees he is wearing a helmet (that is because the pilos helmet was shaped after the pilos hat), the next one sees he is a lady (because of his breast muscles, his dress and half long hair) and the third one sees he is ordering a cooled cup of wine (because he is raising his hand and laying as if he is participating in a banquet). In fact both costume and pose were adapted from a stone relief depicting a pilot, laying at the front deck of a trireme, signalling to the helmsman about the waterconditions, depth, direction etcetera. The original part of the relief does not exist anymore. Luckily somebody in the 18th or 19th century made a drawing before this man eroded away:

SMALL GREEK CARGO SHIP

Here is a variation to the same basic model kit as my Small Phoenician Cargo Ship. I designed both ship and sailors 3 years ago. The sailors are designed especially to fit the sizes and shapes of this particular modelship. Now after 3 years I finally am able to see, and show,them painted and assembled. My plan more or less succeeded. I had to make minor adjustments to make the men fit the ship perfectly. To have them cast in pewter enabled this, because arms and legs can be bent a little bit. It would have been more difficult when they were cast in resin.

Dear Cryns,
I don't know much about the ancient world …
But regardless of that, your boats are simply eye-catcher for me.
Your models are miniature works of art.
My deep respect for this quality and level of detail that you offer us here.

In this picture I spontaneously thought of Odysseus and his remained comrades, after the destruction of troja, looking for the way home …
