The Russian steam clipper Dzhigit of 1876

The steam clipper Dzhigit was launched in 1876 in St. Petersburg and served in the Atlantic Ocean in 1878, in the Mediterranean and 1879 - 1891 in the Northern Pacific. She was later used as training ship in the early 1900s. During the Russo - Japanese war the ship was scuttled by her crew at Port Arthur in 1904 before the capitulation.

There is more information on the ship's construction, technical data and history in the list of Russian steam frigates by Wikipedia, a similar list by enacademic and a list of the Kreyser screw clippers.


The Dzhigit, photos, description and dimensions

The model was built based on historical data by a very experienced model maker. There are more pictures, several views of the entire ship model taken from all directions, and several closer views of hull, deck and rigging. Click images to enlarge!

This model of Dzhigit is a precise and detailed piece of work, a rare masterpiece. The ship model was built with the sails tightly furled to allow a clear view on the many details shown in hull, rigging, deck and armament.  The machinery at the stern to raise the screw out of the water when sailing is shown.

The ship model is 1 : 67 scale. Length is 132 cm, width 29 cm, height 71 cm.

There is a display case for the model made of pine wood and (rather poor, high reflection) acrylic glass which may be used as protection when picking up the model with your car. The display case will not be shipped on air cargo. The case is 138 cm long, 38 cm wide, 76 cm high.

The model looks best when set without a display case.
