Wasa -17th Century Swedish Warship

Wasa - In the 17th century the King of Sweden commissioned his country's finest warship. During construction, he insisted that the ship be fitted with a second row of cannon on both sides. The builders knew this would make it top-heavy, but no one dared argue with the king. The Wasa sunk 20 minutes after her launch in 1628. Raised in 1956 and completely restored, she now rests in the Stockholm Naval Museum.

The Wasa model ship kit accurately recreates every detail from the restoration plans. Over 350 sculptured parts of gilded metal provide ornamentation. Fittings are walnut, beech, copper and brass. The 64 cannon aboard are machine turned brass. Hull is double-planked in basswood and walnut. All structural parts of poplar, tanganyka and walnut are pre-cut for a perfect fit. Included are nine sheets of plans and step-by-step instructions.

The paint sets for these kits are historically accurate colors that have been specially formulated for model ships. They are high quality acrylic based paints that can be thinned with water, thinner or alcohol. They clean up easily with water, making them ideal for airbrush use. Brushed or sprayed, paints dry flat with good grain structure and a smooth finish. The colors contained in each paint set are based on the colors shown in the picture of the model. 1 oz. bottles
