I present you a 1:600 model of a Royal Galley of the 18th Century made in scrachtbuild with home materials. The video with all the steps is on my Youtube channel, I hope you find it interesting:

Much too good and delicate to wargame with.

@dantheman Ship figures are all pretty fragile, but these ones are sturdier than they look. In a couple of years I have only had to re-glue a mast and another one that fell to the ground, the tandal and the rigging, which is very simple. But it's okay that they look delicate since they were floating works of art, if they look delicate maybe I've captured the essence in the figure. Thank you for your comment!
