These Picenian ships used for commercial and war purposes were built between the present towns of Zadar and Rijeka and in Novilara on the other side of the Adriatic Sea.
Their builders have sailed on them throughout the Adriatic Sea already 600 years before Christ.
Historians have traced this type of ship according to the view of color engraved on the tombstone Novilara in Pesaro. It shows the battle Novilara and Liburna, where identical boats were used.This is a model whose rostrum was used for stranding on the coast shoreline, but also to break through the hull of other ships in battle, which is clearly seen in the figure. The figure clearly shows that the stern rudder had tied a rope to the stern which is historically attested, and the use of which has been confirmed only in the 15th c.

Illyrians, Masters of the Eastern Adriatic

The original inhabitants of the entire western and inner Balkans, including the coast of the eastern Adriatic, were undoubtedly the Illyrians, a people of many tribes. On the Adriatic, one of the largest tribes was the Liburni, exclusively warrior-minded sailors who inhabited the area between the Krka River in Dalmatia and the Raša River in Istria. They ruled over all the islands in that area and had both trading and hostile relations with the tribes on the other side of the Adriatic.

Liburnas, warships and merchant ships are the subject of many intertwined stories. While some considered them impregnable bulky floating fortresses, the latest findings present them as not so large, but fast ships with extraordinary maneuverability. Somewhat later in history, the Romans tried to copy them and called their versions of the ships by the same name: Liburn.

From irrefutable historical sources, today we can claim with certainty that we know its existence and exact appearance of Novilara - Picenian and Liburnian ship 6oo BC 69cm, 27.17'', 1:35 , but also for the still somewhat mysterious one Liburnian monoreme 56,9cm, 22.40'', 1:63 of the famous Liburnian warriors...

Step above

As a link between easy to build models and more advanced projects, we offer a series of easy to build kits from MarisStella Model Ship Kits and The Old Seller lines. If you have already mastered the basics of model ship building, these kits will guide you into and through more demanding projects, that are not too complex for a careful model builder.

The "Step above" program is the next step for ship modelers who have mastered our beginner's courses at the first, second and third levels, and are prepared to start work on a larger project. The instructions in these projects are like all MarisStella kits, highly detailed, but they still allow independent thinking and planning. All you need is the ability to read blueprints.

The assembly kits that we have included in this program, which connect other programs from our assortment, are:

Advanced Work

In English we define the qualifications of the ship modeler to enable them to decide on the level of models they want to build in this program. They are: Intermediate level . This means a model maker should have built at least three or more models to a reasonably high standard. This level will enable the modelbuilder to choose models from the MarisStella list without any problems. These are all unique works that were presented to the world for the first time through this line of kits.
