Here is a great and rare find. Endeavor Bark 1768, manufactured by Artesania Latina.
Take a look at the pictures and judge this one for yourself. Model comes to you new and unbuilt in the original box.Original box shows wear from storage but definitely serves its purpose in keeping the kit inside perfect over the years. As you can see from the pictures, the kit is complete and has not been built or started. This was the first exploration vessel of which we have reasonably accurate data today.
When the Endeavour set sail from Plymouth on August 26th, 1768 under the command of the famous captain James Cook, there were 94 people aboard, including officers, scientists, crew and men-servants. This kit is a plank-on-bulkhead construction with pre-cut frames and keel. Poplar, walnut, basswood, Tanganyika, mahogany, maple and beech are used throughout.
This kit consist of brass and hardwood fittings, rigging, silk-screened flags. While this kit comes with detailed instructions, the H. S Endeavour is best for intermediate to advanced builders! I will be happy to answer. This is the one you want.
