Superb models

The Museum für Antika Schiffahrt employs a team of model builders whose skills are amazing. This example of a magnificent Roman Naval Bireme (double tier of oars) is a case in point. They draw up the plans, make the patterns and then patiently build up each miniature ship exactly to scale and plan. The details in each are astonishing.
