This is a classic small inshore fishing trawler, many examples of which can be seen today, working out of harbours all around the British Isles. The full-size Endeavour was built a few years ago on a 45 foot Halmatic commercial trawler hull which is very similar to most of the equally popular Cygnus range, and operated out of Hayle in Cornwall under the name Endeavour. The beamy round bilge displacement type hull with moulded keel and a wide transom stern, can be used as the basis for a wide variety of small fishing and other types of harbour and coastal workboats of various descriptions. As can be seen from the pic of the prototype model, this colourful little boat offers lots of scope for detailing and imaginative deck clutter. Waverley Models (see the Useful Links page) produce beautifully detailed boxes of fish cast in resin, and a few of these scattered around, possibly with some of their model fishermen, would make a perfect deck cargo for this model.
