Endeavour first flew in May 1992 and its last mission was in May 2011. She is named after the British HMS Endeavour, the ship which took Captain James Cook on his first voyage of discovery (1768-1771). This is why the name is spelled in the British English manner, rather than the American English ("Endeavor"). Endeavour was named through a national competition involving students in elementary and secondary schools. Endeavour was the most popular entry, accounting for almost one-third of the state-level winners.
This handcrafted model is painstakingly built by our skilled craftsmen with a wealth of detail and makes a great gift for any space buff or history fan.
6,000 + (and growing) factories in our existing network are eager to make it for you.
When it comes to selling in stock products, we are no difference from many other Internet retailers, but we take pride in going extra miles to do something special for you: Have some products custom made for you.
We cannot do everything, but we usually can accommodate a certain changes in product options such as color, size, material, or minor design twist. We primarily work with vendors or factories, not individual artist or craftsman. For custom made products, we usually only cater to bulk size order that meets the minimum quantity requirement of a single factory run. Don't be shy. Ask. What we can accomplish may surprise you!
