Battle Of Lepanto by RadoJavor Battle Of Lepanto by RadoJavor
Huge Venetian galeasse San Lorenzo. Attacking the turkish fleet in Battle of Lepanto 1571. Was the biggest battle of oarvessels, about 200 galleys on each side . Design of the ship based on old painting and some engravings. I hope its a realistic reconstruction. This was my first picture showing some ship, is about 2 years old.

That's stunning!! La la la la 
In my opinion the only thing wrong is the sailor proportion compared to the ship. I think they are too small and make the ship look too massive.....but as I said, stunning piece of work! ( sorry for my bad english :P )

Did you know that galleys were used well into the 19th century?

Seems like the perfect way to patrol shallow waters or inland seas (the Mediterranean, for instance), and provide speed AND firepower.

Last time it was used was in the Crimean War in 1854, apparently.

Two high in the water, much of the white hull should be inside the water, because it is quite a flat and wide hull. I have this ship as model kit.   :-)

Great work, as usual!

It's not often that someone makes a picture of the Venetian Galeasses in action, and this one is simply amazing! This does more than justice to the awesomeness that is the 16th century Galeass.

Great pic. Anyway, just one point or two:
Mediterranean "galeras" never had so many cannons; the artillery they carried was: 1 large cannon (projectiles of 24 lbs) called "cañón de crujía" and 4 smaller cannons of 6 lbs called "culebrinas"; they were mainly used for shooting at enemy ships
and by the sides, they carried about 10 "pedreros", similar to big muskets shooted by a single man. they were used as anti-infantry guns.

And by the other side, for ~162eRI: the Battle of Lepanto was not won because of artillery, but because of christian infantry (mainly spanish; formed as "tercios", world's best infantry for several centuries).

Breathtaking pic, anyway. Hope this helps

Its not an Galera or Galley, but Galleas, and based on period drawings.

the end of the ottoman force. the great siege of malta had already threw the turks into a downfall in 1565, lepanto reached their end at last with the advanced ballistic technology of the venetian ships.
outstanding work here...well done
