Description

The SS Edmund Fitzgerald

The SS Edmund Fitzgerald was an American Great Lakes freight ship. She sank in Lake Superior during a storm on 10 November 1975, losing her entire crew. She was the largest ship on the Great Lakes in North America. The wreckage was found in in November 1975 by a US Navy aircraft, detected through magnetic anomalies. For 17 years the Edmund Fitzgerald carried taconite iron ore from the mines. Captain Peter Pulcer was known to play music day and night over the ship’s intercom while passing the St. Clair and Detroit Rivers.

The SS Edmund Fitzgerald Model Ship

In order to make the SS Edmund Fitzgerald model, extensive research is carried out to gather as much information as possible on the ship. The ship is then outlined and cut to scale. The hull is made of two layers of wood, which make up the main frame of the boat. The deck is placed on a board and the first edge of the hull is made, sanded and smoothed. A second layer of teak, mahogany or wood is placed on top depending on the desired finish. Our craftsmen work diligently to ensure that the model is recreated as accurately as possible, whether to achieve a natural wood finish or an ages and patinated finish. metals parts and ornaments are hand carved, hand painted and integrated into the model.
