Over the years one the most requested models for us to develop has been a freighter. So by popular demand we present our Great Lakes Freighter.
Modeled after a 350′ bulk carrier, our 1/96th semi-scale model of a Great Lakes Style Freighter make a beautiful representation of the famous freighters. The hull and superstructure is constructed of highly conformable die cut expanded PVC over die cut plywood frames. There are detail parts galore including laser cut and cast parts, vacuum form life boats and stacks, decals and flag and more. Add to that the step-by-step building instructions and you are on your way to constructing your own miniature freight moving business.
