This ship was built between 2008 and 2009. The Gualdim Pais was invented by me, so it never existed in the reality. Its on Micro-scale, 280cm length and about 32 000 parts.

The control tower is based on the KMS Bismarck with the range-finders of the Vittorio Veneto battleship.

This ship, was presented for the first time in the 2º Tomar Lego in Portugal, June 2009.

This warship can be separate in 5 sections for a easier transport.
