This building kit is made after the Roman Quinqueremen. Roman galleys were subdivided in types by the number of oars they had. The Quinquereme is a large Roman war ship. The galley model is made on a scale of 1:100 and measures 52 x 22 x 21 cm. On board of the Quinquereme there were several pieces of artillery, one or more war towers and of course the famous Roman ship boarding bridge with a steel spike on front. The ram was the strongest part of the galley, but because of their superior infantry the Romans preferred boarding other ships.
