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.

Thanks Willie. I just perused your very impressive collection. How in the world do you find room for all of it? Your Malta harbor diorama alone looks huge.
Many regards,
Vol
