    Cut ribs and keel, I'm lining the keel with African Sepili hardwood veneer because some of the keel will be exposed when the build is complete.

    Re: RC Greek Bireme

    Bulkheads and deck backbone, the deck is where all build references will be based due to the fact I'm making it dead level.

    Re: RC Greek Bireme

    The keel and bulkheads and the bundle of hull planking I cut from African Sepili hardwood. The hard wood is from scraps I got from my second job at a yacht manufacturing plant that made $25,000,000 boats, one per year. The electronics are from Hobby King and they will be the power of this build.
