KeithAug Posted June 15, 2015 Share #1 Posted June 15, 2015 Having spent a number of years scratch building HMS Cornwall (Type 22 Frigate) at 1:96 scale I felt I wanted to tackle something a bit quicker and easier. I also wanted a model that provided the opportunity for enhancing the kit to create something a bit different from the norm. After a week or two trawling through the range of kits on offer I decided to build Amati's Endeavour at 1.35 scale. Although the kit features Endeavour in her 1934 guise I decided to model her as restored in 1989. To do this I have relied heavily on the web based photographic resources. The kit was a Christmas present from my kids and when finished my Daughter has claimed the model for her bay window. The building of Endeavour has been covered in detail in a number of build logs and I don't intend going over the ground they have covered so well. What I intend doing is covering some of the things I have done differently and what I learned in the process. I will start where I am now - in the middle of the build and then go back to the start, working through a series of updates over the next couple of months. Hopefully with summer out of the way I will get back to building in September and complete in time to add another kit to my wish list for next Christmas. Here are a few photographs to start the process.
