To build this ship, extensive research was done using various sources such as museums, drawings, copies of original plans and photos of the actual ship.
The Wasa of 1628 was the most ornately decorated vessel of her time. She was commissioned by the King of Sweden and was this country's finest warship. During construction, the King insisted that the ship be fitted with a second row of cannon. This made it top-heavy and she sunk just 20 minutes after her launch. She was raised from the ocean in 1956 and now resides, fully restored, in the Stockholm Naval Museum.: A1101-SE:
