Introducing Conrad Martens and Syms Covington
Conrad Martens was the ship's artist. Many of his paintings of landscapes, many of which included the Beagle, helped me at the time to create my model of Beagle. You can find his biography and some of his paintings at wikipedia:
Syms Covington was Darwin's assistant in the Beagle (and for some years after the voyage of the Beagle, when Darwin was in England). In the Beagle, Darwin trained Covington as a collector of specimens, hunter and taxidermist. Covington even wrote his own dairy of the trip and he gathered his own collection of specimens. You can find more information of Covington in the wikipedia.
The HMS Beagle was a sailboat, sometimes fast, sometimes slow.
Your support is the wind that moves this project. Please help the Beagle sharing the link with your friends.

I'm very happy because the project has a new Official Comment. This is my favorite part: "What a beautiful ship, what a lovely idea!". Thanks to the Lego Ideas Team for this fantastic comment. And the best part of this voyage to the 10k is the support and the feedback from all the fans of Science and Lego that are voting for the HMS Beagle. Thank you very much!
