HMS Endeavour Ship Model: 2021 Renewed Naval Modeling Kit for Modelers Intermediate Level

It was one of Artesania Latina scale models preferred by our modeling friends for decades. Now it will be again! Our team of 3D designers and modelers had the task of renovating the 1/65 scale HMS Endeavour ship model. They knew the importance of this faithful British naval replica. For all this, we are proud to present your new 2021 modeling kit, totally improved and adapted to the demands of these times.

Naval Model Building. New 1/65 HMS Endeavour Ship Model (22520).

The iconic British exploration and research vessel – formerly a coal boat – with which Captain James Cook discovered Australia can now be built again. The HMS Endeavour naval modeling kit, an 18th century boat, aimed at modelers with an intermediate skill level, can be assembled like the real ship at your own workshop. This is due to the fact that the actual construction system of the ship using false keel and frames is the one that has been adopted for the model itself.

Naval Model Building. New 1/65 HMS Endeavour Ship Model (22520).

The 1/65 scale wooden ship model of the HMS Endeavour has been completely redesigned. Our team has reliably relied on all the existing information about the ship. Target? Make the miniature as similar as possible to the ship that sailed the South Seas. Below we highlight all the improvements made, one by one.


The first thing any modeler looks at as soon as he opens a naval modeling kit is the quality of the wooden parts. The structure that holds the scale model firm is essential along with the parts that cover it.

Naval Model Building. New 1/65 HMS Endeavour Ship Model (22520).

Well, the parts of the HMS Endeavour ship model are made of high-quality birch and linden wood, as well as the seven oak veneers – to complete the hull – and, also, linden. All of them have been cut on a micron way and comply with that high standard that we propose in our product catalog. This is so because we use a very high precision laser so that, later, all the parts fit together perfectly. Almost effortless. It is as if they attract each other like a magnet.

Another great improvement is that the kit now includes “paper templates that, once positioned, greatly facilitate the marking and cutting of how many holes, slots and perimeter contours, among other actions, must be carried out,” says Artesania Latina team. They also adds that “it is not an easy task when it has to be done using other more rudimentary methods -such as those used on numerous occasions by other companies in the sector- that cause irreparable disruptions in the face of the final scale model finish”.

Use the paper templates for the new HMS Endeavour 1/65 ship model! (22520).


This new HMS Endeavour ship model has much more realistic finishes compared to the old one, now discontinued. Meticulousness would be the noun with which they have been thought and reflected in its photo-etched and die-cast details.

Its photo-etched plate contains parts that replace some of the previous model, now they are much finer and more elegant. But also other totally new ones, “thus helping the modeler during the assembly”, comment our modelers. Both types give spectacular finishes to this jewel of naval modeling.

Among others, the improvements made in photo-etched parts focus on the windows, base, horizontal capstan, chains, gratings and lifeboats.

Naval modeling. The windows allow light to shine on the New 1/65 HMS Endeavour Wooden Ship Model (22520).

The transom windows and the rear side windows -both before made of die cast opaque-, the skylight -before nonexistent- and the fishing lights now have a more elaborate design. They are very easy to assemble and allow the interior light to pass through different compartments and its transparent acetate.


On the new ship model of the British vessel HMS Endeavour we have developed a system for the pre-installation of LED lighting. “Small supports have been added in different rooms of the ship such as the aft cabins, under the skylight and inside the fishing lights”, the 3D designer specifies.

The modeler friend who wishes can attach LED lights in order to make the scale model of the ship comes to life.

If you want to illuminate your 1/65 scale ship model of HMS Endeavour, Artesania Latina offers you the possibility of acquiring the Set of LED Lightning for Scale Models and DIY Projects, not included in your naval modeling kit. This set has fixed lights and candle effect, battery holder and on / off switch to turn it on and off.

Also, don’t forget one last improvement in this regard! The base is prepared so that the modeler can choose between putting the photo-etched part with the nbota name on it or not putting it on if he prefers that the light passes through the name cut into one of the wooden stringers.

The base of the new 1/65 Ship Model HMS Endeavour (22520) allows the output of LED light.


As we mentioned in the previous section, Artesania Latina team has improved many other photo-etched parts on the HMS Endeavour ship model. This is the case, first, of the horizontal capstan, now much more stylized and easier to work with than with the previous model.

The fusion between photo-etched, wood and die-cast, together with the contrast of colors of the parts that compose it -red and black- with the veneer used on the floor, make this a truly beautiful set compared to what makes the competition.

Chains for the dead eyes are now made of photo-etched and it is presented on various sizes, thus resulting less arduous assembly for the modeler. The contrast of black colors –chains- and gold –links- “enhances the ship when a visual sweep is made along the entire side of the ship,” underlines our 3D Design team.

The gratings have been transformed into rooms, with photo-etched details both on the walls – trim plates – and on the ceiling -hinges-. Speaking of LED lighting, the battery holder is perfectly concealed under what was previously a grating. In this way, the modeler can access to the on / off switch whenever he wants, as well as change the batteries when they are exhausted.

The latest photo-etched improvements are the lifeboats. The modeler only has to choose and apply the appropriate paints on these to achieve an immense quality of finish.


This new scale model of the British ship HMS Endeavour has extensive and precise step-by-step instructions, they are very elaborate and have full color photos. Artesania Latina makes it even easier for the modeler with the inclusion of video tutorials. All on DVD format for the computer.

Artesania Latina modelers explain in detail and without giving rise to the slightest doubt the assembly process of the entire model of the ship in its more than 500 digital pages.

Once built, the wooden ship model measures 32.08” (815 mm) long x 11.81” (300 mm) wide x 25.59” (650 mm) high. Learn more about this wonderful and 2021 renewed ship model kit of the British HMS Endeavour, watch the two existing videos under these lines.

With the Micro Tools for Modeling, made by Artesania Latina, you will be able to assemble your scale model more comfortably and quickly.

Ship Model Building. New King of the Mississippi Paddle Steamer Model 1/80 (20515).

Artesania Latina team has thought down to the smallest detail. Your scale model comes to life and has the best finishes thanks to King of the Mississippi accessories, which are sold separately. Figurines, lighting, engine -on sale soon- and paints, which we are going to talk about specifically below. In this way, the modeler can add these sets to his historical scale model… And make it more beautiful and faithful to the original replica than ever!


The decks and compartments of the wooden model of the King of the Mississippi wheeled steamboat are going to be packed with people. Of all ages and all dressed in beautiful period costumes. For this, Artesanía Latina has created a Set of 18 Metal Figurines for the modeler to assemble and paint.

King of Mississippi Accessories. Set of 18 Metal Figures for New King of the Mississippi Paddle Steamer Model 1/80 (20515).

The metal figurines also have a 1/80 scale so that they are perfectly positioned according to the paddle steamer ship model measurements.

Altogether, it has 18 figurines distributed as follows. 14 human characters, including the crew and the passengers themselves. Not fotget to mention 4 animals, 2 horses and 2 cows.

King of Mississippi Accessories. Set of 18 Metal Figures for New King of the Mississippi Paddle Steamer Model 1/80 (20515).

This Set of 18 Metal Figurines can also be used for other ship models with similar scales and that are historical and approximately the same time. Thus, the clothes which the characters are dressed will not clash.

King of Mississippi Accessories. Set of 18 Metal Figures for New King of the Mississippi Paddle Steamer Model 1/80 (20515).

In order for the modeler to glue the figures, we recommend using our Set of Thick Cyanoacrylate and Spray Accelerator. On the other hand, we have created two packs of paints with which you can paint these little figures in great detail. The Basic Paints Set for Figurines and the Advanced Set… Your choice!


We are passionate about LED lighting! Imagine walking into the room where the wooden model of the New King of the Mississippi paddle steamer is on display at dusk or at night. Suddenly, he turns his head and realizes that the scale model is illuminated. We assure you that you will think the following: How wonderful!

King of Mississippi Accessories. Set of LED Lightning for New King of the Mississippi Paddle Steamer Model 1/80 (20515).

So Artesania Latina modelers have designed a LED Lighting Set. Also previously, they added a pre-installation to the model so that everything works perfectly.

King of Mississippi Accessories. Set of LED Lightning for New King of the Mississippi Paddle Steamer Model 1/80 (20515).

Thanks to this LED Lighting Set, the modeler has ten candle-effect LED lights and four continuous lighting. All, yellow, 3 millimeters and 3 volts. In addition, it contains a battery holder for two AAA batteries and another for a button cell. Not to mention the on / off switch, eight meters of wiring, half a meter of heat-shrink sleeve and one meter of tin. The set brings everything so that the modeler only has to place the lighting system and it is such that.


It’s a great addition to this wooden scale model! Another great accessory for the King of the Mississippi is the Motion Motor Set (27591) for the paddle wheel. Now for sale separately.

The new mobile turbine of the new model design moves as if it were plowing through the waters of any navigable North American river. Simply spectacular! As if it were the real ship when the turbine provides the navigation power.

The small engine from the set is mounted on the stern wall. This powers the turbine with a pulley and a rubber band.

King of Mississippi Accessories. New Turbine Motor for New King of the Mississippi Paddle Steamer Model 1/80 (20515).

In this sense, it is totally practicable. That is, whenever you want, you can make adjustments to the engine or the aforementioned rubber. In the event that it later deteriorates, you can replace it without any problem.

On the other hand, Artesania Latina modelers and designers have also developed the pre-installation of the smoke outlet for the funnels. These have been made hollow so that the smoke can escape … As if it were the real ship and it was sailing!

The creation of the system that allows the creation of smoke must be the initiative of the modeler. Artesania Latina does not currently include any set for it in its product catalog. We recommend that you find an electronic dispenser and place it in the service chamber. In that place, which is where the funnels are located, fill the reservoir with liquid.


Steamboats were created by Robert Fulton. A model of one of these as relevant as King of the Mississippi should show the best finishes. Another of the essential accessories of the King of the Mississippi is its Paints Set, which is sold separately from the naval modeling kit.

Six bottles of acrylic water-based paint with 20 ml each for a single purpose. Paint your wheel steamboat model with the necessary colors. Thus, the miniature replica is even more faithful to the original. Off-white, off-black, gold, burnt umber, buff and bright red are the colors that make up the paints set for King of the Mississippi.

King of Mississippi Accessories. Paints Set for New King of the Mississippi Paddle Steamer Model 1/80 (20515).

The modeler can use both an airbrush and a brush during the painting process. 20 minutes after application, the paint is dry to the touch; an hour, totally dry. To paint another coat on top, you must wait 6 hours.

We recommend that you apply a primer lyer for best results before painting. Our Basic Finishes Set, for sale separately, has this product and two more very useful ones: thinner for airbrush and semi-gloss transparent varnish.

Finally, you also have the Hardwoods Dyes Set for the parts of the King of the Mississippi paddle steamer model that you need. It does not come with the modeling kit.
