King Gustav Adolf II, Captain Hans Jonsson, Musketeer, Gunner, Gunners Mate, Seaman and Vasa Gun.
For three years, carpenters, pit-sawyers, smiths, rope makers, glaziers, sail makers, painters, woodcarvers and other specialists had worked on building the Navy´s new warship- the Vasa.
She was a “royal ship” the seventeenth-century designation for the largest type of naval vessel. Vasa was designed to be the foremost of Sweden`s war-ships, with a hull constructed from one thousand oaks’, 64 large guns, mast more than fifty meters high and many hundred gilded and painted sculptures.
But fate decreed otherwise; the ship foundered shortly after embarking on her maiden voyage in August 10th 1628.

In 1980 the toy soldier range painted in gloss was introduced, sculpted by David Scheinmann, and today by Andrew Stadden which from modest beginnings has expanded to a very extensive range covering many popular subjects and periods of military history.
