OK, so this one blurs the rules a bit by using some non-LEGO parts, but it's also just an impressive ship. The builder claims that this ship is based on the original Krol Dawid ship, which fought in the Battle of Oliwa for the Polish Navy. I haven't found a good photo of the original (I'm sure you've noticed I've barely had time to blog here lately) but the details look fantastic no matter what. Wikipedia has the history of the original ship.
