Auto Credit Based on WalrusAircraft's Great Lakes Freighter

I took the model Great Lakes Freighter made by WalrusAircraft, adnd painted it in the red and white livery the S.S Edmund Fitzgerald wore when she sank in November of 1975 while on Lake Superior.

I will be updating this as much as I can.

    @CptJacobson A lot of people remember it, mainly due to Gordon Lightfoot's song "The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald."

    It wasn't really that long ago if you think about it. My dad was born 13 years before this happened.
