Galley - almost done...

Basic Khmer War Galley, by Tony Harwood

Here are some not-quite-finished pics of the basic war galley. There is some rattan wickerwork that runs down each side, offering the oarsman a little bit of protection, that still needs to be added. This will be a separate piece on the model.

The plan is to send this off to be cast in resin. The prow and stern posts will be cut and made so they slot together to allow for modularization. There will be a couple of versions of the hull, which often had Makara heads carved at the front; of the prow, which featured various Naga or Garuda heads; and the stern which was often fashioned into a Naga tail.
