Roman Bireme
This MOC is of a Roman bireme/liburnas that was developed during the Punic Wars ~50 B.C. The liburnas (wolves) were known for their agility and maneuverability over other larger galleys. Originally, the liburnas had only one set of oars, developing later into a bireme to get more speed. This bireme also possesses a corvus, a mobile bridge that anchored to the enemy’s deck with a hook, thus allowing a massive boarding on to the opposing ship. Pictures and information used to aid in the construction of this MOC came from the book Bireme: Roman Naval Warfare in History and Diorama, Andrea Press 2004.

Aaron, Always good to meet a fellow Stokes. As for the LEGO Romans, I got the majority of pieces from BrickForge and I highly recommend. The skirts I found on Brickset and printed them out. I believe that there are some references in the description for the parts. Let me know when you post your stuff. B
Quoting Aaron Stokes Very good job! I would like to know where you get your lego Romans? I would like very much to know how I can get some. I am going to be posting some of my creations as soon as they are done.(@ 2 months) Maybe we are related?

Quoting jim Read Amazing, Brian. Can you give us some idea of how big the ship is and how long it took to create?
Jim, the ship itself took me roughly 3 weeks to build (working in the evening and on weekends). I also invested quite a bit of time into the minifigs to turn them into Romans. As for the ships dimensions; length is 34 inches or 110 studs, height is 19 inches or 49 bricks, breadth of hull is 7 inches or 24 studs, and the breadth at oars is 13 inches or 42 studs.

Excellent! Biremes are my favorite ships! I remember when I was building a whole army of biremes in Age of Empire I...
