First 1:650 galley

 Made the first galley, the model comes from roman seas's carthaginian fleet slightly recoloured. I tried to follow the instructions but it was impossible to dry fit the deck on the scaled down model, and I had to glue it into a strip of balsa. I'm quite unhappy as to how it turned out, there are several things that i'll change for the next assembly: 1mm higher deck, cover the white strips in the sides with the outriggers and crop the deck to make it smaller. Corvus can be added for 1st punic war.
