Thank you I will do a tutorial soon.but I will ask everyone now,to come up with the style of longship you'd like too see made in a tutorial,(a picture of the longship wouldn't go a miss.Then I know what everyone's talking about. lol),
But it you like the longship,have a look at the tute's I've done on tri engine plane's,8"howitzer's,and traction engine's.There just as much fun to make.

Brilliant builds! Those look fantastic!

Superglue and superspeed, always a messy combination.

Well, I'll chime in and say that if you could do a tutorial on making a 28mm scale Mycenaean galley, I would be eternally in your debt. Considering doing it myself this summer, or getting the fine gent behind Ironheart Artisans to do some in MDF, but this technique would seem to be perfectly suited.

Please?  :)

I don't see why not.Many year's ago I made a tri marine and swan ship for Grand Manner.So if you just post a picture here of what your after then I'll be able to say how much work it'll be(picture's just let me know were both describing a horse,and not looking at a cow.)

Anyone. :)
The one that suits you more.
With your skills and ideas we mere mortals might build something. :D

A quick update I've had a look at both the galley and liburnia.With out wanting sound like a know it all.Both are simple builds requiring no previous knowledge of the ill's of working with card and evil glue.Where as the longship require's a prolonged use of four letter words.So I'll start with the galley and move on to the liburnia.The deck of the longship requires the same method of construction as the galley's deck area,So I'll cross reference the two projects.Rather than a complete tutorial for each.
As a model to scale isn't something I've the room for ,I'll be making the galley at 15cm-20cm,and the liburnia at 25cm-30cm.
To scale thats roughly 30' and 60'.which should allow for 25mm base's which is how I base most of my figure's otherwise I've two model's I can't use.
All I still need to know is where to post this tutorial as a workbench project or here as it stands now?
I'll be ready to post the first part by the end of the month.I estimated the galley build to be well under ten hour's.This way it can be done in the evenings over a week or hammered out in a day at the weekend.Is this the way you'd prefer it to be structured?
If I'm making for myself then the galley should be built and painted in four hours.That would be using the evil glue which isn't something I advise in a tutorial as I can never be sure how many thumb's anyone has who'd follow a tutorial or how old they really are.

I think placing here the tutorials would be fine.
Many thanks for the tips. :)

Thank you for the link,Its very kind of you.I don't use modelers scaling on wargaming models.I work on roughly 5mm to a foot,+ or - (the relative thickness of the materials in prortion to the detailing limitations of the material's),for 28mm.
Which roughly means if a doorhandle to 'scale' is 1mm and the materials will only work down to,2mm then the whole proprtion of the model will be adjusted to allow visual harmony with the details even to build a vehicle larger than 'scale length'.
In short build things to look right with figures on bases,and treat scale an.after thought.
As the debate over true scale is as old as the hobby and is truely a nasty can of worms,never to be opened again.
That said I thank you for the link as there is always something new to learn or remember,and inspire you think in a different way.
Mark.
