Product Description

Product Description

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 theking 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.

You get a fine end opening box with every thing in three bags. The box itself has pictures on the side of the actual vasa which i think was a bad move on revells part and could have shown pictures of the completed model due to the complexity of the paintwork. The instructions are in black and white so i would recommend looking at the vasa 1:10 model on the net.
This model is incredibly detailed with over three hundred sculptures to paint. If your trying to decide whether to choose between airfix or revell, then i would recommend revell as it is more accurate, one example being the windows on the stern galleries are all complete on two decks against airfix's one deck. The colors are also correct as revell worked with the vasa museum to get this kit correct. It is also cheaper which is an added bonus. The gun decks on this kit are represented well in this kit with actual cannons sticking out of the gunports which are hollow unlike airfix's offerings which are partial guns stuck to the exterior of the hull. The model is highly complex and will take a long time to build and paint. The paint advised by revell is just fine but i went further by varnishing mine and painting the water line in white as i thought the ship would look very bland.
The ship had an interesting history sinking 1800 meters away from the dock and when you paint a waterline on the ship you can see why she keeled over.

pros: superb detail, more realistic than airfix, cheap price.

cons: needs pictures of completed model

Great new ship kit from Revell! 6 Sept. 2012
By David - Published on Amazon.com
Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
This is a new-release for Revell's Age of Sail ship line of kits. It's been a long time since they released anything new in this category, and they did a fine job with it! The Wasa is an actual Swedish Ship with an interesting story behind it...
The kit itself is terrific! Being a new release, the kit's molds are very crisp...all the parts look great, with exceptional detail on all the ornately-decorated parts!
And it looks beautiful when finished!
Highly recommended!

vasa or Wasa Revell model kit 14 Nov. 2012
By Eugene Davidson - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This model is very complete and requires a deal of experience and time to complete. This last summer I saw the real thing in a museum in Stockholm, Sweden. This was what inspired me to get the kit and build it. The directions are fairly clear and not to dificult to follow. The only negative remark I have is that for me it was dificult to be sure of the correct colors that the directions called for. This may have been my fault.
Perfect example of a circa 1600's Man-o-war. 14 April 2015
By J. CROSBY - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
A truly wonderful example of a 17th century warship. Nice size also. Larger than expected. Highly detailed. Contrary to other reviewers: Instructions are in English (as well as various other languages). Besides, it's all mostly diagrams--no words needed.. A History/Maritime buffs "dream boat." For examples of how to paint this try and google "wasa swedish warship photo" or go to the Wasa web page that is the home of the actual war ships museum. This ship was gigantic! Here is a photo of a model in the Wasa museum.

Quality model, fun to paint glue and rig the lines. This model, if purchased for a child, should be assembled with an adult for a nice finish.
