HISTORICAL BACKGROUND

The design of the Kyrenia Ship is based upon archaeological underwater findings north of Cyprus. Several full size reconstructions were made since its discovery in 1965. The original ship dates back to 340BC, and was presumably from Rhodian origin. Crewed by four men it, carried Rhodian wine amphorae when it sunk around 300BC.

Many of the vulnerable resin parts are enforced by steel rods to prevent them from breaking

The original master of the modelkit was made in wood, textile and 2-component putty
