That ship looks ideal for 28mm Romans or Greeks.  Great find at such a price.

If you want to see how this ship will be converted just follow that topic then .

I have to create a new one to give all the LAFers the possibility to follow the work even they aren't interested by the "In the streets of Rome" topic  ;)

made from a zanzibari warrior (Foundry DA range) with a new head (WestWind saxon) and no more weapon and equipment

Eric,
It'll be a useful and interesting addition.
I know your planning on building your own,and I'm all for it ,much more satisfying.No doubt your aware of them, but just in case your not. I've added pictures of the Sarissa cranes  . (£15,and £12.50) As sometimes a little extra expenses save the more valuable aspect of time.(It's how I prefer to work build everything I can ,and buy only when its going to save a shed load of time :D )

If nothing else they'll help you speed up a parts list.

Mark.

thank you Mark.

i knew them. They are great ones.

the most difficult to realise is the wheel and you can use that one if you are like me (more builder than buyer). ;) as a good start for the crane.



For the 28mm one, it'll cost you £5.00 from Blotz, available too in 15mm and 20mm scale.

I fully understand. I spend all day making models for other people.With three children at university, my personal project budget often stretches no further than cereal packet card.
I all honesty that's what I was planning to use for my dock front pieces.

I know that feeling - have been pruning the collection, partly to make some room in the man cave for new projects, and partly to pay for them...  :D

I collect cash from the hobby to be reinjected into the hobby and some time a restaurant (to keep my wife aware that the hobby is a good thing for her too.) lol lol lol
