Egyptian Transport-The need to get cedar and ebony wood, myrrh and a particular golden alloy, called "electrum", pushed the Egyptians to build suitable ships for navigation on the open sea, so that they could reach Syria or cross the Red Sea. A bas-relief discovered in the King Sahure temple allowed the reconstruction of this model, made enchanting by the particular construction of the hull.
The paint sets for these kits are historically accurate colors that have been specially formulated for model ships. They are high quality acrylic based paints that can be thinned with water, thinner or alcohol. They clean up easily with water, making them ideal for airbrush use. Brushed or sprayed, paints dry flat with good grain structure and a smooth finish. The colors contained in each paint set are based on the colors shown in the picture of the model. 1 oz. bottles
