The most widely-produced type of battleship in the Russian Navy was the Borodino-class, named for the Battle of Borodino. Five ships were built and entered service in 1904, only to be rushed to an early grave in the Russo-Japanese War. At the Battle of Tsushima, three were sunk and one was captured, renamed Iwami, and used for target practise. The fifth, Slava (“Glory”) went on to serve in World War I, when it was sunk at the Battle of Moon Sound by the dreadnought SMS König. The short, embarassing existence and strange hull design are the main reasons that noted naval historian Antony Preston considers this to be one of the worst batteship designs ever built. Then again, I suppose that’s to be expected when Russians attempt to copy the French.
A solid model of the Borodino-class pre-dreadnought battleship of the Imperial Russian Navy. I have previously offered this ship in larger scales with moveable turrets. Click here if you wish to see it.

Kaja's Models and Machinations
Kaja’s Models and Machinations specialises in models of experimental Soviet heavy tanks produced from 1939-1957, in multiple scales from 1:285 to 1:144. The files for all 1:144 scale models may be re-scaled by a factor of 0,9 for N-gauge (1:160) model railroads. A high-detail model of the KV-1 suitable for 1:100 (15mm) is also available and others may be available on request. Other models include ancient war galleys, tall ships from the Golden Age of Sail, and even steamships from World War I. I am currently experimenting with some of my original designs as well, and I hope to create an entire collection of original miniatures at least as impressive as my historical collection. If you would like to see what sort of contraptions I like to dream up, please check out the Nine Empires tag on Hive.
All files I sell have been validated on my Form 3 LFS (resin) printer. If you are interested in purchasing physical models, check out my website:
If you are new to resin 3D printing, I feature one of my own designs in a post where I discuss some considerations that need to be made when printing miniature tanks:
Some of my models also have video links in their product descriptions showing post-processing, so that you have an idea of what’s involved.
