Revell 1:450 Spanish Galleon
I just finished Revell's 1:450 Spanish Galleon Plastic Model. This is a nice little model, miles better than the Pyro BonHomme Richard I built a while back. The first thing I did was cut the hull down to waterline. Then I cut a balsa wood insert to fit the hull for some strength support and glued it in place. I made some modifications like deck grating, stern and inner deck rails that did not come on the model but were pictured on the box art. I installed a mizzen yard and flag pole extensions for each mast. I haven't figured what to use for a base yet, or if I even need one. A base would probably protect the weak oars, so I will most likely make one.
