This HMS Endeavour modeling kit is the perfect gift for advanced modelers. I bought this kit some years ago as a retirement project but have found I have been much too busy to start it! So, Ive decided to give someone else the pleasure of making it and obtaining a bargain in the process. The kit is in perfect condition still enclosed in its plastic sealed wrappings - however in storage there has been some damp on the outer cardboard box which can be seen in the picture but the contents, having been protected, are perfect.
In the 1760s, the Royal Society had designs to send a group of astronomers to the south pacific to observe the transition of the planet Venus between the Earth and the Sun on June 3rd 1769. This was a rare astronomical event not to be repeated for more than a century. Giving command of the expedition to 39 year old James Cook, proved to be the best choice the Admiralty could have made. On April 5 1768, she was registered on the Navy List as a bark by the name Endeavour.
She was declared unseaworthy after an accident in the 1790s and was condemned at Newport, Rhode Island, after almost 30 years of service.
