At the beginning of the 19th century, the first steamship, called the Clermont, was launched. It ran along the Hudson River to go from New York to Albany. Also, it was the first ship to carry out a regular transport journey for the public. It was not the first, however, to use paddle wheels. That gift went to the ships that sailed the Mississippi and Missouri rivers. Now you can humanize your scale model with this magnificent set of figures made of metal for King of the Mississippi model ship.

HMS Endeavour and the voyages it undertook with Captain James Cook were instrumental in providing input in navigation, seamanship and geographic exploration. It made it possible to calculate the position in longitude with high precision by means of mathematical formulas. Launched in 1764 and chosen by the aforementioned sailor four years later to prepare for his historic voyage, HMS Endeavor was part of important discoveries such as that of Australia. Also, it facilitated the location of Tahiti, New Zealand and many islands in the Pacific Ocean. In addition to making known animal and plant species hitherto unknown in Europe.
