This is a hand made resin and enamel  model of the Russian Venera-4 spacecraft which traveled to Venus in 1967.

It is an authentic piece
of Russian Space History.

  It measures 8 x 9 inches and was originally
a presentation model made as a proposal for
Sergei Korolev`s Cosmonautics Museum in Russia.

The model
has hundreds of
miniscule details
and is the result of
several months of work.

    The Soviet Union flew a series of largely successful robotic missions to Venus. These missions included orbiters, landers, and atmospheric probes. The nation achieved a series of historic space firsts during its exploration of Earth's "sister" planet.  In 1967, the country became the first to place a probe into the Venusian atmosphere. The Venera 4 spacecraft, launched on June 12, 1967, released a 383-kilogram (845-pound) probe. The 1-meter (39-inch) probe descended under a parachute for 94 minutes, relaying data until it ceased transmissions at an altitude of 25 kilometers (15.5 miles). The probe's sensors returned data indicating the atmosphere was 90 to 95 percent carbon dioxide.
The Venera-3, managed to successfully reach Venus but communications had already failed and mission control learned nothing of the conditions beneath the Venusian clouds. 
Venera-4 was a much more successful mission. It was the first spacecraft to transmit data from inside the atmosphere of Venus. Upon entering the atmosphere, Venera-4 took measurements of the abundance of hydrogen and oxygen. Radiation counters also measured how well Venus's atmosphere shielded the ground from radiation from the Sun. During descent, on board instruments took measurements of the temperature, pressure and density.
