  3. HMS Endeavour rigging plan

    Thank you Bluenose2 and Druxey. I have Petersson's book, which is some help. I am currently chasing up a local source for Marquandt's Captain Cooks Endeavour, I know someone with a copy and he may be able to provide the info I need. Thanks again Gary
  4. HMS Endeavour rigging plan

    Thank you for the replies gentlemen. Gregory, checked out your reference to 'Historic Ship Models' on Amazon, I may purchase a paperback copy for general reference, very affordable at $7.83. Banyan, never thought of Ebay, I shall try Abe books as well, didn't know about them. The logs will also be a good source. Druxey, I shall also check out 'The Fully Framed Model' Vol. IV. I guess I'm just a bit OCD. Our friend wouldn't know if the rigging was correct or not but I want to get it right, it is after all probably the most important historic vessel to sail in these waters. Thanks again Gary
  5. Ensign here, I have recently completed Caldercraft's HMS Victory, log elsewhere in the forum. I have now been approached by a friend to complete a model of the HMS Endeavour, Captain Cook's research vessel when he sailed to Australia. The model is by Artesania Latina and leaves a lot to be desired IMO. I have tried to obtain a copy of the AOTS publication HMS Endeavour only to be informed it is out of print. The problem I am mostly concerned with is the rigging, the AL rigging is not accurate and not well presented. If I could obtain an accurate set of rigging plans the task would be much easier. I have searched the web with no luck and so was wondering if any of you could provide me with rigging diagrams or point me in the right direction to obtain same. Thank you in advance Gary (Ensign)
