STS Young Endeavour

Postby sjbatche » 28 Feb 2010 21:38

Last year my youngest daughter completed a ten day trip on the Young Endeavour and had the time of her life. When she came home she asked if I could build a model of the Young Endeavour for her.
I have made a start but there is still a long way to go.
The model will be a static model in 1/72nd scale.
Something a little different to most other models in the club. Unfortunately I don't think that it would be possible to make a functional model at this scale.

Not unless you did a Chas and fit a transparent perspex keep to give her stability.

He did that to his Endeavour and she stay's upright.

Endeavour is a downwind sailor only but she looks very different out there.

You could do that and fit a very small motor, screw and rudder servo to push her around.
