HMB Endeavour
Posted by JLavender on Sunday, May 17, 2020 5:08 PM

My most recently completed model, HM Bark Endeavour, as she appeared in Tahiti, 1769, to observe the Transit of Venus. Total build time was just under a month.

 
The ship is built to the scale of 75’ to 1” or 1/900. The hull was made from boxwood and planked with Nootka Cyprus. The balance of the detail is Nootka and boxwood. The masts are brass, and the rigging is a mix of nitinol and copper wire. The sea base is carved Nootka Cyprus.

Joe,

 

Everything about that display is stunning! The sailing canoe? 1/4" long ?

I really like the running sea. I've seen that on the water; it's beautiful.

Superb work, sir.

Thanks! The outrigger is a little less than 1/4" actually.
