HMB Endeavour Ship Model Medium

When it comes to importance, the HMB Endeavour (or HMS Endeavour)  ship certainly sits high up on the list, given its role in world discovery. Under the command of Captain James Cook, this important naval ship played an essential role in the discovery of Australia. Across a nearly three-year expedition, this ship helped to chart an entirely new course for the world that we live in.

As one of our most popular model ships, our new HMB Endeavour ship replica helps to add much-needed elegance, eloquence and charm to the whole experience. This is a must-have take on the HMB Endeavour model ship range, also available in other sizes of 95cm and 45cm.

Features of this wooden HMB Endeavour painted model ship:
  • Highly impressive ship replica of the HMB Endeavour, made using high quality wood
  • Overall dimensions 75cm L x 19cm W x 68cm H 1:40 Scale scale, fully assembled and ready to display on arrival
  • High quality materials used throughout, including wooden hull and metal fittings: no plastic for added promise of durability and protection
  • All added extras such as cannons, muskets and anchors are made from high quality sculpted metal for the best finish. Gun ports are sliced into the hull, not placed
  • Built according to the original of the ship, creating an HMB Endeavour model ship that is perfectly aligned with reality
  • All sails are made from realistic fine linen with ragging lines made from various textures for the best impact
  • Painting designed to help match up with the imagery and color scheme of the real HMB Endeavour
  • Solid wooden base is included, alongside a metal nameplate and fact sheet about the ship.

It would be more impressive to display your HMB Endeavour ship models in a hardwood & perspex display cabinet specially designed for tall ship replicas.

About the HMB Endeavour

The HMB Endeavour began life in 1764 as the Earl of Pembroke, a collier, before being purchased by the navy in 1768. In those days it was to be used as part of a scientific voyage. It set sail from Plymouth in 1768 under the command of the legendary Captain James Cook.

This ship played a major role in how we understand the layout of the world, thanks to the work of James Cook, who was considered as one of the greatest ships and explorers of the era.

Sailing around Cape Horn, the ship moved into uncharted territory before stopping off at the Pacific Islands, including Huahine and Borabora, to be claimed by Britain. Eventually, she anchored off New Zealand in September 1769, becoming the first vessel from Europe to arrive here since Abel Tasman almost 130 years prior.

The journey, though, was not without issue: Cook reached Australia’ east coast in 1770 and came ashore at Botany Bay. However, a near-miss with the Great Barrier Reef meant that Cook had to improvise, getting rid of much of the ships cannons to make it light enough to move.

In that year, it was circumnavigated, with the whole area chartered from north and south. However, it was not until sailing west that he discovered the incredible coast of Australia. The search, you might imagine, continued for some time. He even found other major landmarks when sailing, including Jakarta, Indonesia, when searching for help with repairs to the ship.

It was at this point that we started to find out just how big the world was – especially compared to Great Britain. Eventually, she returned to Dover via the Cape of Good Hope on the 12th July 16771, having been at sea for the best part of three years.

Indeed, Cook is the first person to have charted a large part of the Australian coastline, and to put the continent in a fixed location. Thanks to the work done by his incredible vessel, he was able to help us chart a better idea of the world in which we inhabit. On top of that, the Endeavour played a major role in helping to overcome the scurvy problem – a common problem due to long voyages and poor diets.

Not only did the HMB Endeavour change our geographical knowledge, but it also played a great role in adjusting nutrition for the men and women of the sea.

It served as a troop transport during the American War of Independence, before being scuttled in 1778 near Rhode Island. In 2018, the wreck was believed to have been discovered by a group of marine archaeologists. To this day, though, the best replica of the HMB Endeavour can be found in the Australian National Maritime Museum, Sydney.

Shipping & Delivery

We do not offer Free Shipping. It’s important to note that due to ordering from some specific suppliers, our delivery times may vary slightly between products. Since we don’t hold stock ourselves, we do rely on third parties. Occasionally they make mistakes meaning a product we thought was in stock may have just run out — in which case we’ll let you know just as soon as we can and explain your options.

Also, the delivery times are our best estimates only. Many things can delay your order, including freight delays, bad weather, customer location and the local post/courier service. If we do know there is a delay, we’ll email you as soon as we can with the updated delivery time.

If your order is in stock and we process the charges to your credit card, it will ship within five business days from the date of your order.  We will send you tracking information within 24 hours of your order leaving the warehouse to the e-mail address your provide when checking out.  If you do not receive tracking information from us within six business days of your order, feel free to follow up with us. 

All items dispatched via courier have an implicit 'Authority to Leave' at the customers'  shipping address, unless the customer has indicated otherwise at the time of ordering.  

Most commercial courier and postal companies we use to send customers' packages will in most instance leave your parcel at the property / address indicated on the order, in a safe, concealed location if it hasn't already been accepted by a resident. At times certain courier drivers may leave a note for the customer with a contact number to call and organise a suitable time for re-delivery or an address of the depot where the package will be left in order for the customer to pick up, if the driver could not find a safe concealed location at the property. This is at the discretion of the courier driver.

In cases where the customers' package/parcel is left at the collection depot and the customer has not picked it up by the due date indicated or the customer has not organised a suitable time for re-delivery, the default course of action is for the item to be sent back to the sender. If this occurs, all returned packages, will be subject to a 20% (of item price) restocking fee. Any subsequent re-shipping charges will also be borne by the customer.    

So while we do our best to make sure your order arrives in full and on time, if you absolutely need something guaranteed to arrive on time, like your partner’s wedding anniversary gift, then we recommend you allow yourself enough time before placing an order.
