Great Midwestern Ship Model Museums

One of the little known facts about the great Midwest region of the United States is that it is home to a number of really impressive maritime museums. Great Midwestern Ship Model Museums takes the reader on a journey of discovery through the Maritimes of the Midwest. The book begins at the Ohio River Museum and continues to museums on the Great Lakes, the I & M canal, the Mississippi, and ends on the eastern terminus of the Missouri River. Each of the book's twelve chapters focuses on the most impressive ship models in that museum's collection. The ship models are rare one-of-a-kind and beautifully constructed examples of the model shipwright's art. Each of the specially selected museums have something in the their collection that is quite unique to their region and cannot be found anywhere else in the Midwest. The ship models themselves tell the story of the innovative American work ethic, the spirit, and the legendary contributions made by Midwesterners to America's prosperity. The ship models described in the book range from fourteen-foot long giant models of Great Lakes iron boats, to very small four-inch long models of Missouri River diesel towboats. No matter the scale or size of the ship model, one thing is common and that is the attention to detail by the builder. A number of the ship models described in the book are over one-hundred and twenty years old, some are the only known replica of a particular historic steamboat. This book makes Midwestern maritime history truly come alive. For those interested in discovering the finest examples of the ship modeler's art and beautiful marine oil paintings, Great Midwestern Ship Model Museums will prove to be a treasure of information.
