Ahhh. the Endeavor- I built this when it first appeared- my first large scale sailing ship. I'm now jealous because the original didn't have the sails- they came later. Grrr.....
Nice build there...
Stuart :D

One that found it's way to a hobby shop in Anchorage, Alaska. Anchorage stands on the shore of Cook Inlet & there's a statue of Captain Cook overlooking the inlet from the end of 3rd Avenue...just up the street & around the corner from the Captain Cook Hotel. It was HMS Discovery that explored Alaskan waters, but there's no kit for that one...

Thanks guys.

Looking at these photos, though, I wish I had gone for Ian's choice of copper oxide on the bottom...

Superb Endeavours everyone. The more I see of these sort of things the more I want to try one. 8-)

very nice, like the way you got the wood effect looks like real wood, what was your technique ?
Its also surprising how many different colour schemes this ship is shown in....from different sources....
