The Real Thing
The SS Edmund Fitzgerald was an American Great Lakes freighter that sank in a Lake Superior storm on November 10, 1975, with the loss of the entire crew of 29. When launched on June 8, 1958, she was the largest ship on North America's Great Lakes, and she remains the largest to have sunk there. Nicknamed the "Mighty Fitz", "Fitz", or "Big Fitz", the ship suffered a series of mishaps during her launch: it took three attempts to break the champagne bottle used to christen her, and she collided with a pier when she entered the water. - Wikipedia - This very nice model was created by designer RocketManTan.


O SS Edmund Fitzgerald foi um dos grandes navios cargueiro de água-doce norte-americanos e afundou em uma tempestade do Lago Superior em 10 de novembro de 1975, com a perda de toda a tripulação de 29 homens. Quando lançado em 8 de junho de 1958, ela era o maior navio da América do Norte em Grandes Lagos, e continua sendo o maior afundado lá. Apelidado de "Mighty Fitz", "Fitz", ou "Big Fitz", o navio sofreu uma série de acidentes durante o lançamento: foram necessárias três tentativas para quebrar a tradicional garrafa de champanhe usada para batizar, e ele se chocou com um píer, quando entrou na água. - Wikipedia - Este belo modelo foi criado pelo designer RocketManTan.
