The Roman war ship patrols the English chanel and is loaded with 30 Roman Legions ready to do battle. Down bellow deck are the slaves pulling hard on the oars to get the ship moving. The ship is nearly 45m long and 6m wide. At the front is a big battering ram used in sea battles. This model is built to 1:44 scale.

The Romans chase down a Viking long ship in the fogging English Channel.
The Romans close in on the Viking long ship.
The oars from both ship get tangled as the ships make contact.
Battle begins as the Vikings rush on to the Roman ship, thankfully the fog has lifted now…
After taking a big beating the Vikings do a runner. The Romans have only suffered one lose, one man overboard and damage to the sail at the bow.
Nice moc, I've tried myself to make warships like that. However this is not a trireme or quinqereme, this looks more like a pentaconter, which had one line of oars on each side. The trireme, as it's name suggests had 3 rows of oars on each side, and also, as it's name suggests, the quinqereme had 5 rows of oars on each side. Two last things are that unless they weren't going that far, they wouldn't have near that many troops on the ship, and the rowers on the ships (contrary to popular belief) were NOT slaves. Other than that, the construction is very good. All and all 8/10.
