Spent a lot of coin on a popular auction site to win this Processed Plastics St. Lawrence Canal-max Lakefreighter. Was similar to one we used to have - only ours had a heavy lift crane instead of the aft cargo hatch.

Looks like Oglebay Norton's 1950s paint scheme for the Edmund Fitzgerald. Since the previous owner immortalized his John Hancock on the bottom, we're gonna go ahead and call this the SS John Allen.

Nevermind the snail tchotckes...

Good grief! That model has probably been around for a good 50 years or more. I had one when I was a kid - not quite so colourful!
