Description

A beautiful piece of art from England the Gallion Revenge. Wonderfully hand carved and painted with plenty of detail all the way down to the guns on the deck. Sails are artfully painted and she sits in pristine bottle. Make sure to pay close attention to the carved hull. Do not miss those photos of the deck. This is a really advanced build and this guy put a lot of work into it. Very much a one of a kind antique
