| Description

In 1625 while Sweden was busy building an empire around the Baltic Sea, the Swedish King Gustavus Adolphus ordered new warships. Among them the Wasa. On its maiden voyage in 1628 the Wasa set sail and fired a salute. But only after a few minutes of sailing the ship began to heel over. She righted herself slightly - and heeled over again and, to everyones horror and disbelief, the glorious and mighty warship suddenly sank.

Wasa kit first impressions

I built this kit ages ago, and have wanted to do it again, finally got the chance. The kit comes in a sturdy box, and all pieces are intact. The plastic is a pale caramel colour, rather then the usual grey for other models. Two spools of thread are supplied, but unfortunately not labelled regarding size - I have contacted Airfix for details. The quality of the moulding of the details of the stern is excellent. This is going to be a fun build. The only suggestion I would make would be to make the rigging and paint diagrams bigger to show more detail.
