Tender Avos – Special Edition
This is a kit for the Tender “Avos”. On July 1, 1806 in Novo-Arkhangelsk in Alaska (now Sitka, USA) a firstborn ship of the Russian-American Company’s trading fleet was triumphantly launched. It was an 8-cannon tender. The Russian Ambassador Nicolay Ryazanov named the ship ‘Avos’. On July 27, 1806, the Tender ‘Avos’ departed on a secret expedition to establish the interests of the Russian Empire in the waters around the Southern Kuril Islands and the Sakhalin. The ship was commanded by the 22 year old warrent officer Gavrila Davidov and crewed by 12 local craftsmen.
