The Wasa (Also known as The Vasa) Classic Ship Models of High Craftmanship

A History:
The Wasa (Vasa) was a three-masted beautiful classic ship built for Gustavus Adolphus of Sweden 1626-1628 & launched in 1627. Length 70.00 m, breadth 11,50 m, draught 4,80 m, displacement 1,400 tons, sail area 1,150 m2, with a crew of 133 sailors and 300 soldiers. On its maiden voyage in 1628, the Wasa capsized and sank in the Stockholm harbour. 53 of the ship's 64 cannons were salvaged in 1664. After years of searching and preparation from 1956, Vasa was salvaged with an intact hull on 24 April 1961. The Wasa Museum was opened the following year and is currently Sweden's most popular tourist attraction. Although the Wasa sank it remains one of the most spectacularly decorated ships of its time. It possessed wooden & gold carvings but had the fundamental flaw of its stern being too high above its centre of gravity which made her unstable. This page boasts several highly detailed classic wooden ship models of the Wasa (Vasa). The sizes vary from large to small depending on your display space available and budget. All the classic ships ornaments were hand carved in wood. The wooden hull was built using plank on frame method. Only precious woods such as teak, sapelia and mahogany were used to build these very elaborate ship models of the Wasa.
