James Cook’s Exploration Ship
HMS ENDEAVOUR – On August 26, 1768 Lieutenant James Cook set sail from Plymouth, England in the refitted supply ship Endeavour. In addition to the necessary equipment, many students and family members accompanied the 94 man crew. On this expedition he discovered Australia and mapped New Zealand, Tahiti, and the Society Islands. By the end of the voyage Cook had boundless faith in the HMS Endeavour, advising the Admiralty that no other type of vessel should be used to explore distant lands.
Corel’s Endeavour kit features plank-on-bulkhead construction with pre-cut frames and keel. Poplar, walnut, basswood, tanganyka, mahogany, maple and beech are used throughout. Kit includes brass and hardwood fittings, rigging, silk-screened flags and display cradle. Plans and instruction book have been revised for easier construction.
