Artesania Latina HMS Endeavour

HISTORY OF THE HMS ENDEAVOUR

Set sail with this wooden model of the British ship HMS Endeavour. She was initially a coal ship and later converted to carry out the long expeditions of Captain James Cook across the great South Sea.

The Endeavour was launched in 1764 and chosen by Captain James Cook four years later to prepare for his historic voyage, HMS Endeavour was part of many important discoveries. She discovered Australia and facilitated the location of Tahiti, New Zealand as well as many other islands in the Pacific Ocean, as well as animal and plant species previously unknown in Europe.

All this adventure undertaken from the United Kingdom allowed the calculation of the position in longitude with great precision by means of mathematical formulas. In this sense, the contribution of James Cook to navigation, seafaring and geographical exploration have an absolutely historical importance.

Now, the model shipwright has the fabulous and reimagined wooden model to build of the HMS Endeavour. A must have in any naval modeling collection! Check out the new contents of the modeling kit below!

The HMS Endeavour wooden modeling kit has high precision laser cut birch and linden wood parts, oak veneers to complete the hull construction and basswood, much more realistic finishes with redesigned and very detailed photo-etched and die-cast metal details. The kit also contains hand-sewn sails ready to be placed.
