Swedish Ship Model Vasa 1/65 (II): History of the Unlucky Warship

wLearn about the history of Vasa ship in this post and build the spectacular wooden model of this Swedish warship at 1/65 scale. The Vasa was the flagship of the Swedish crown and empire. Or pretended to be. This is so because a kilometer and a half of being launched at the port of Stockholm, in August 10th 1628, it sank due to its instability.

History of Vasa Ship. Swedish Wooden Warship Model Vasa 1/65.

WHY AND HOW DID VASA VESSEL SINK?

How did such a great vessel sink in its first voyage? The history of Vasa ship is curious. The Vasa carried a lot of cargo, and not being well stowed so, after a strong gust of wind, it moved to the other side of the warship, thus worsening the capsizing of Swedish naval history benchmark.

Everything happened, according to some investigations, by the impatience of King Gustavus II because of the delays, as it was possible to verify, nobody contradicted him and the ship was launched with the known result.

History of Vasa Ship. Swedish Wooden Warship Model Vasa 1/65.

Other studies assert that the Vasa was designed as a smaller ship than it was after, mainly because of the incorporation of a second battery of cannons, already begun its construction. It seems that, for example, the embrasures were too close to the water, so the entry of the sea to the ship was more feasible; the ship was too tall in relation to its beam; and its center of gravity, therefore, was very high.

Once launched in port of Stockholm, the water began to enter through the embrasures of the cannons lower line. Fifteen minutes later the boat was already at the bottom of the sea. Not because of a strong gust of wind, because there was only a small breeze, but really because of the bad design of the Vasa ship.

HISTORY OF VASA SHIP. NAVIGATION AND ARTILLERY POWER

To boost its naval artillery, the aforementioned monarch ordered the Vasa to be built with 64 bronze cannons arranged in three different bridges. The upper one, the high battery and the low battery. In addition to endowing it with a great power to move 1,200 tons.

This great vessel was built along with three others by order of King Gustavus II. He wanted to have some more advanced war resources on the Thirty Years War against Poland. A large one more, like Vasa size, called Tre Kronor -Three Crowns- and two more of smaller size.

Columbus left Castile in August 1492 with three small ships – La Niña, La Pinta, and La Santa Maria – in order to find a way west to the East Indies to profit from the spice trade. But instead, on October 12 of that same year, he came across the land of one of the islands of the Bahamas. Later, he came across different and numerous islands until he decided to establish a colony in what is now known as Haiti, the first European settlement in America after the arrival of the Vikings five hundred years earlier, according to the latest studies.
  • Juan de la Cosa (1450-1510): He was a Castilian navigator and cartographer, known for designing the oldest European map of the world by including the territories of the Americas.

Our team adds the following: “We have modified the mainmast platform by implementing its design with photo-etched. All the platforms have been divided into several parts for the enjoyment of the modeler during the assembly and to provide greater realism to the model”.

IMPROVEMENTS ON THE DECORATION OF THE CARAVEL MODEL

During the redesigning process in 3D of Santa Maria Ship Model, after the advice of the modelers, several improvements have been made regarding the decoration and details of this model.

One of the first measures adopted was the inclusion of a lifeboat that could be built with frames and hull lining in wood. We suppressed the precedent that was made of die-cast in one part”, explains Artesania Latina team. They also add that “this way, the modeler’s experience with the ship miniature is more satisfying and fun. In addition to the fact that in the 15th century there was no type of boat made of metal”.

Another improved detail is the introduction of supports for the barrels and more realistic cannons -with their bullets-. On the new version of the famous ship they have been divided into two parts. “The gun carriage is made of wood while the cane, in metal”, concrete our professionals.

Likewise, the colors of the rubbing strikes, the handrails, the stern window doors and the shields, among other accessories, have also been changed to provide a beautiful decorative touch to the boat that sailed the Atlantic more than five centuries ago.

According to Artesania Latina’s team, this design work has been quite difficult because “it has been necessary to introduce the entire electrical system inside the tank with a ‘L’ form, which is located just below the pilot seat.”

In addition, for the wiring to be quite imperceptible, “the arrangement of the cable has been taken care of in detail, because a grayish color similar to steel has been chosen and it has been arranged in parallel to the wing grids and the fuselage”, says one of our experts. Precisely, the metal parts to build these area and the rest of the structure come in stainless steel photo-etched and injected die-cast.

Ship Modeling & Model Aircrafts. The legacy of building wooden models

Modelers have realized how children and parents hobbies have changed during the last two decades after the arrival of new technologies. Many of them and their younger relatives have decided to keep alive as a legacy one of the most beneficial and comforting hobbies. Ship modeling and model aircrafts are the perfect choice. Building wooden model ships, aircrafts, trains and other vehicles like the Stage Coach 1848 from the Wild & Far West you will enjoy a lot.

Ship modeling. Wooden Ship Model Swedish Vasa 1/65
It’s a hundred-year-old entertainment that brings health and satisfaction to modelers –and some good headaches to solve-. You can always find time to take a break and park on the fabulous worlds of ship modeling and aircrafts.

This balance occurs when a wooden model ship like the Viking is built. Firstly, because it is a renewed classic scale model aimed at the beginner friends of Artesania Latina for its great appeal – a boat present on famous tv series from that population -. Secondly, due to its reedited assembly instructions with video tutorials on DVD. In conclusion, construction games and use of digital devices come together in a perfect fusion because the modeler builds handly and watches the guide on the computer. In other words, tradition and modernity at the same time.

NEW GENERATIONS RESTART THEIR PARENTS SHIP MODELING & AIRCFRATS TRADITION

The children and grandchildren of modelers come to a moment in their lives that they want to continue the modeling hobby of their parents and ancestors. That’s because this way let to feel them closer when they still live with us, by continuously sharing gossip about this hobby. It also happens when they have left them, because they are remembered and they are more present in our world. They are carrying on with this beautiful legacy deposited in their hearts by naval modeling, by aircraft modeling or by railway modeling, among others.

Artesania Latina encourages all its friends to share multimedia contents of the models on social networks. You can also do it on those of our firm (Facebook, Instagram and Youtube). Continue requesting instructions, plans or missing or broken parts for their elderly parents or for yourself. Request us what you need if you want to finish an scale model, unfinished by your parents.

SHIP MODELING AND AICRAFTS REPORT PHYSICAL AND MENTAL HEALTH TO MODELERS

Construction toys, present of course in modeling in the form of scale models, are ideal for improving the health and psyche of old and young people. Physically, their assembly increases motor skills and coordination in the hands and fingers because the modeler must be skillful and precise in the placement of the piece and must manipulate many parts that are even very tiny. Some studies also claim that vision improves because the model maker discards different shades of the same color.

In the psychological field, it gives us relaxation, serenity and concentration by having to work a lot with detail. It is, in short, an unbeatable barrier against Alzheimer illness. It develops cognitive skills that facilitate analysis, comprehension, understanding the space in which one the modeler works, reading and mathematics.

The logical reasoning is enriched as the model maker has to build an exact copy of a wooden ship model or a wooden and metal airplane model. You must plan in advance the assembly phases of the scale model and determine what order to carry them out: logically, to place the masts, first you have to build the ship’s hull, or to install the cabin you have to finish the aircraft structure before. What about the great self-esteem that is gained when, after a great effort and passion, the replica is finished for exhibition.

In short, all these benefits are a good excuse for the little ones to enter in modeling world. It is a hobby that is passed from generation to generation as part of oldest modelers genetics, who wish it survives thanks to their descendants.Ship modeling. Wooden Ship Model Arab Dhow Sultan 1/85
