Longboat HMS Endeavour

The Endeavour's dinghy was a so-called "jolly boat" or "longboat". It was about 8 metres long and had room for about 8 to 10 people. The boat was moved by oarsmen and had sails to enable it to move forward in suitable wind conditions. During Cook's voyages, the dinghy played an important role in exploring the coasts and landing on islands. It was used to make landings by scientists, explorers and crew to explore geographical features, collect samples and allow encounters with local people.
Endeavour's dinghy had a robust design to withstand the harsh conditions at sea. It was built of wood and sealed with waterproof canvas. The boat was kept on board the Endeavour and lowered and raised when needed.

Launched in 1765 and chosen three years later by James Cook to prepare his historic voyage, the ship HMS Endeavour was involved in important discoveries. Thanks to this British ship, Australia was discovered and Tahiti and numerous islands were located. In addition, new animal and plant species unknown in Europe were discovered. And finally, it made it possible for the first time to calculate longitude with great accuracy using mathematical formulae.

The new HMS Endeavour longboat kit is an exceptional 1:50 scale replica of the ship, featuring high quality parts for assembly, high precision laser cut basswood plywood frames, hand sewn sails, cotton rigging twine and die cast brass metal parts and brass etched parts. As a bonus, this model kit includes a wooden model stand with a metal nameplate.

Printed instructions are not included. The richly illustrated step-by-step instructions are included with the kit in digital form only and can also be downloaded for free.

This model kit is aimed at anyone who wants to start building model ships.
