James Cook and his ship ENDEAVOUR


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.

In Wikipedia there are two fine articles on James Cook and his ship ENDEAVOUR.

  

The ENDEAVOUR model, photos, description and dimensions
 

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.

More photos: Several views of the entire ship model taken from all directions, and several closer views of hull, deck and rigging. Click images to enlarge!
