Modeler Michael Swanson gives us a sneak peek at his model of VASA, a Swedish 64-gun warship and the only 17th-century ship that has ever been salvaged. Today the ship is a popular tourist destination at Vasamuseet / The Vasa Museum. You can see Michael's rendition at the 43rd annual Masters of Miniature: Ship Model Show, opening Jan 28th. USS Constitution Model Shipwright Guild members across New England display over 70 models from 9th-century vessels to pleasure craft of today (and everything in between).

The colors are all wrong, it should be red where it is blue. And the stern looks strange as well. Poor guy!

Careful, it looks top heavy. Wouldn't want it to fall over!

I’ve seen the real thing in person - impressive that it stayed in tact for so long! May not be as seaworthy as the constitution since it never made it out of the harbor.

Saw the actual Vasa last month in Stockholm. Pretty amazing!

Loved the VASA museum!!

Stunning achievement. I saw the Vasa when they were restoring it way back in 1980. What an experience!

A very nice model! well done!

Tremendo trabajo . Felicitaciones

The original case study for “requirements creep”… 😄

That's a terrific model! I visited the Vasa Museum in Stockholm during a summer the football World Cup was being held. Sweden was playing that day so I pretty much had the place to myself. It's an outstanding museum and the restored ship is very impressive.

Beautiful

Wow! Beautiful work!

Monica Wellman look familiar?

It's #NationalComplimentDay! So today we say "Bravo Zulu” or “BZ” for short as the maritime shorthand to say, “Well Done.” Give it a try and if you use the abbreviated version, be sure to annunciate clearly, or it could backfire! #compliments #BravoZulu ... See MoreSee Less
