    It will be a long road but worth it in the end Max.

    More planking and shaping, I use epoxy because it's water proof and fills in the gaps between planks.

    Re: RC Greek Bireme

    Wow. Its really starting to take shape. When do you start to put the mechanics in?

    The mechanics will be the last to go in but the first to build once the hull is planked.

    Re: RC Greek Bireme

    Once the hull is planked, will there be enough room to get inside to fit the mechanics?

    I imagined you would start putting in some of the mechanics while you still have access to the upper half of the hull

    The deck will be removable as will be the mechanics, you'll see.

    Re: RC Greek Bireme

    Planking hull and deck, the little guy in the background was where all of this started. The reason I built the bigger one was as you said Max where are all the mechanics going to go and unfortunately the little was just too small.

    Lots of work but I am determined to finish this one right, no rushing and when I'm done I will be happy with being patient.
