Imperial Russian Yacht - Standart

The Standart was an Imperial Russian yacht serving Emperor Nicholas II and his family, being in her time (late 19th/early 20th century) the largest Imperial Yacht afloat. After the Russian Revolution the ship was placed in drydock until 1936, when she was converted to a minelayer. During World War II, she participated in the defence of Leningrad.

The Standart was built by order of Emperor Alexander III of Russia, and constructed at the Danish shipyard of Burmeister & Wain, beginning in 1893. She was launched on 21 March 1895 and came into service early September 1896.

Standart was fitted out with ornate fixtures, including mahogany panelling, crystal chandeliers, and other amenities that made the vessel a suitable floating palace for the Russian Imperial Family. The ship was manned and operated by a crew from the Russian Imperial Navy. During the reign of Nicholas II, Standart was commanded by a naval Captain, although the official commander was a Rear Admiral. Her commander in 1914 was Nikolai Pavlovich Sablin.

In 1907, Standart ran aground on an uncharted rock off the Finnish coast. Although damaged, the ship did not sink and was repaired and soon returned to service. The Russian Imperial Family was vacationing on the Standart during the summer of 1914, when they received the news of the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, in Sarajevo. With the outbreak of World War I, Standart was placed in drydock.

Following the fall of the Romanov Dynasty, Standart was stripped down and pressed into naval service. The ship was renamed 18 Marta (18 March), and later Marti.
In 1932-1936, Marti was converted into a minelayer by the Marti yard in Leningrad. During the Second World War, Marti served in the Baltic, laying mines and bombarding shore positions along the coast. On 23 September 1941, Marti was damaged in an air attack at Kronstadt, but later repaired and continued service until the end of the war. A mine laid off Hanko by Marti sunk the German submarine chaser UJ.117/Gustav Kroner on 1 October 1941.
After the war, Marti was converted into a training ship and renamed Oka in 1957. She continued serving in that role until she was unceremoniously scrapped at Tallinn, Estonia, in 1963.


The Standart Model

The Standart model was created exclusively for DeAgostini ModelSpace in co-operation with Federal State Budgetary Institution of Culture and Art "Central Naval Museum" of the Ministry of Defence of the Russian Federation. This graceful model, like its original, is a model of marine elegance and the model reproduces all the features of a real yacht.

Pack 2 contains a keel jig as part of the assembly.


Take the false keel and the frame and sand them smooth. Check the fit of the frame into its slot on the false keel and adjust the fit if needed. When you are happy with the fit glue frame 5 into the 5th slot on the false keel making sure it is at a right angle to the keel.

Next take the bow decoration and paint it matt black. When it is dry take some gold paint and dry brush the raised areas of the bow decoration. I then painted the figurehead gold with a dark wash to bring out the high lights.

Stage 4

Stage 4 contents
:- Frames, lower deck, wheel and stern crest.

Take the frames clean them up and test fit them behind the last frame fitted to the false keel then glue them in place making sure they are at right angles to the keel.

Next take the bow section of the false keel and test fit the lower deck to it, when it fits glue the deck in place. Again I opted here to paint the crest gold and add a wash like I did with the figurehead.

Now take the wheel and crest and clean them of any burrs. Paint the wheel brown and then use gold paint on the inner and outer rims of both sides. Take the crest and paint it gold then bring out the detail with a dark wash.
