HM Bark Endeavour
This Sophomore Course is based on the Caldercraft kit, HM Bark Endeavour. This course consists of 12 chapters and covers the complete construction of the hull. A separate Masting and Rigging course will be made available in a few months. It will cover the construction of the masts and spars, the making of all sails except for the studding sails, and completing all of the rigging both standing and running.
This course is ideal for modelers with some model shipbuilding experience. Because of the complexity of the model, there is much more to construct and thus, much more is covered in the course.
No modifications are made to the design of the kit. The lower hulls and much of the trim work and deck furniture are painted. The course also goes into detail on improving the looks and details of the ship's boats. The book Anatomy of the Ship, HM Bark Endeavour was the main point of reference for these details.
With this course, the modeler will learn how to double plank a model ship, how to build deck furniture, how to make ship's boats and much more. The optional Masting, Rigging, and Sail Making Course will teach the modeler more complexities to making masts and spars that are historically correct, how to make realistic scale sails that look historically correct using Silkspan, and how to completely rig a model ship with sails. Again, that course should be available in a few months.
The course teaches many of the basics of model ship building as well as more complex techniques and is a stepping stone to kit bashing and even more complex models.
The kit must be purchased separately and is available from Ages of Sail
