Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Fair+
"Rare kit from Ogonjek, Moscow. Probably made in the 1970s or early 1980s, but the exact date is not known. This kit is not listed in Burn's CVG. Large scale model is injection molded in dark wood brown, very light tan/green, medium wood tan and with full vacuform sails. The scale is approximate; the hull alone measures about 16 inches long. Full hull kit has a large number of pieces, around 200 as a guess. Features full deck fittings, display stand, an excellent jig for making ratlines (similar to Heller), diagrams for rat lines, full rigging diagrams, full size flag patterns and more. The kit has never been started. Missing one part: #58 wall. This is a simple, flat rectangle that can be easily made. Inventoried with all other parts and instructions. The box is complete but has wear as shown. The 'Goto Predestinatsia' (God's Predestination, literally The Providence of God) was an Imperial Russian 18th century ship mounting 58 guns. She was the first Russian ship of the line and the first ship of this rate built in Russia without any help from foreign experts. She was commissioned on April 27, 1700 at the Voronezh Admiralty wharf, and was in service until 1711 as a part of the Azov flotilla. After the unsuccessful Prut campaign and the loss of Azov the Goto Predestinatsia was sold to the Ottoman Empire.
