The modern Russian frigate, Neustrashimy has been the Russian Navy's representative for Kiel Week in June 1995 and June 2002. Falk Pletscher was present on both occasions and took these excellent photographs, showing the sleek frigate overall, as well as fine detail shots.
More of Falk's outstanding photography of Neustrashimy will appear in the next issue of Plastic Ship Modeler (Issue #28). Falk is a regular contributor to Plastic Ship Modeler. The current issue (#27) contains his article, "Potemkin - A Ship - More Than a Mutiny", which chronicles the famous Potemkin mutiny of 1905 and includes many photographs of his build of the 1:700 Scale WSW model of Potemkin.
