1/75 scale galley La Reale de France, all 35 inches of it!

As the year winds down, it’s time for me to complete the final section of my Nordic-Con posts with a mixture of ships, sci-fi and figures. The entries in the ship section were rather thin this year and I hope that we will see more competition for next year. There was a pretty good mix for the figures and sci-fi is always intriguing because one can never guess what would turn up in any show.
