Cleared the workbench and got back to the Zvezda 1/72nd scale Trireme I started some time ago, I complete adding the oars, for a total of 116!, then primed the whole thing with Vallejo ‘German Green Brown’ that took about 3 hours of careful spraying to cover the entire model with a thin even coat. I left the paint a full 24hrs to dry before I applied the first colour, the black ‘tar’ to the bottom.

I opted for a partial build of the hull, masts and oars before priming, I’ll add the final detailing after the basic colours have been applied and before I rig the model.
