Zvezda LLC founder and owner Konstantin Krivenko died July 5 from a virulent lung infection.

“It was mainly Konstantin’s devotion, focus and personal motivation that has driven our company to the high international esteem within the hobby and game markets,” the company said in a July 14 statement. “It is his example that will inspire us to achieve his dreams for the future.”

Krivenko founded Zvezda in 1990. It has since grown to be the largest Russian manufacturer of model kits and board games.

Krivenko is survived by his wife, Maria, and his children Vasilisa and Alexander.
