MS Estonia, previously Viking Sally (19801990), Silja Star (1991), and Wasa King (1993), was a cruise ferry built in 1979/80 at the German shipyard Meyer Werft in Papenburg. The ship sank in 1994 in the Baltic Sea in one of the worst maritime disasters of the 20th century.It is the deadliest shipwreck disaster to have occurred in the Baltic Sea in peacetime, costing 852 lives.
The real ship had white funnel and mast,but my model has a yellow ones,because i was really short with white parts.I hope you still like it!

Amazing Patrick, you have outdone yourself here, a truly amazing vessel and a very nice tribute to all of those unfortunate souls. You wouldn't catch me taking a journey on a ship, the deep blue sea scares me. I'd rather fly like a bird than swim like a fish lol
