Andrey Veslivy built the Combrig 1:700 scale kit of the Imperial Russian battleship, Tsarevitch, as she appeared in 1904 as part of the Russian Pacific Squadron, subsequently known as the First Pacific Squadron. The Tsarevitch was built in France and exhibited the extreme tumblehome of contemporary French designs. The ship served as the general basis for the Russian built Borodino class. The Tsarevitch was the only Russian battleship of the 1st Pacific squadron to escape destruction, as she broke out of the trap at Port Arthur at the conclusion of the Battle of the Yellow Sea and was interned in the German port of Tsingtao.
