This is a model I made of HMS Pandora taking me 4 months,This is the ship that was sent to search and find the mutineers of HMS Bounty.After arresting most of them in Tahiti then combing the south seas for four unsuccessful months captain Edwards decided to give up the chase and steer for England. in attempting to find a new passage through Cook,s Endeavour Strait between the northern tip of Australiaand New Guinea Hms Pandora was wrecked on the Great Barrier Reef on the 29th Aug.1791. 31 0f the crew and 4 of the mutineers went down with the ship.Edwards with the 98 survivors sailed 4 of the ships boats 12000 miles to the Dutch settlement of Counang in the Timor Sea,and eventully to Djakarta. There those that did not die of depravation found passage back to England.The court martial of the 10 remaing prisoners resulted in 3 being hung at Portsmouth from the foremast of Hms Brunswick.The fate of Fletcher Christian and the others sought refuge on the remote island of Pitairnwas not discovered till 1808 by then all but one were dead.
