Plastmodeller Revell Royal Swedish Warship VASA


In  1625, the Swedish King Gustav Adolf II commissioned the construction of  the VASA as the flag ship of his Baltic Fleet. Under the management of a  Dutch master shipbuilder, the work was carried out by 400 craftsmen at  the royal shipyard at Stockholm. The hull built of oak with 2 gun decks  was completed at the beginning of 1628. With over 700 opulent carved and  gilded sculptures and ornamentation the VASA was then fitted out to  form a ship of impressive splendour. With a length of 69 m and 72  cannon, this warship called after the ruling royal dynasty, was one of  the largest of her time. Urgently needed by the king for the war against  the Poles, on 10th August 1628, the VASA set sail on her festive maiden  voyage in Stockholm harbour. After a squall of wind, water flowed  though the open gunports and within a few moments, the VASA had sunk  before the eyes of the assembled crowds. 328 years later, the VASA was  rediscovered in Stockholm harbour and in 1961 she was raised. Extensive  searches for parts of the vessel, their reconstruction and conservation  are still ongoing. Since 1990 this unique and almost complete ship has  been on show in the Vasa Museum Stockholm.
