The ENDEAVOUR became well known as the expedition ship of James Cook on his first voyage. He set out on 25 August 1768 from Plymouth to his exploration of the South Seas. On that voyage he went to Tahiti, Tubuai and some other islands, then went to New Zealand, the northeast coast of Australia, and finally reached Batavia. He came back to England via the Cape of Good Hope. He arrived in the Downs on 12 July 1771.
The ship model is based on a kit but was built in details to plans of Karl-Heinz Marquardt and the pictures of the replica that sailed around the world. It was made without sails to allow for a better view on the impressive rigging. The carvings were expertly done.
This model of HMS ENDEAVOUR is a beautiful,
very detailed piece of work.
The ship model is 1 : 50 scale. Length is 85 cm, width 32 cm, height 79 cm. The name plate on the stand is fixed by double-sided adhesive tape and can be taken away.
This model has already been sold. The pictures and the data are shown in the gallery of the ship models sold only to let enthusiasts and model makers enjoy the photos and maybe get ideas or some guidance, if someone builds such a model by himself.
