Having heard terrible things about the Revell "Spanish Galleon" (which BTW is actually a galeass, a galleon with oars) I thought I might try my hand at making my own. You can see the beginnings here: link

Not sure I'd want to do a galleass, but I'm thinking this technique should transfer to other ship types with lots of oars. Waiting with considerable interest to see the next installment on this topic.
