Famous Edna G. Tugboat

5071EdnaG STBD ProfileThe Edna G from Twin Harbors, MN, is now available from N Scale Ships. This model was developed from measurements of the actual museum ship, which served from 1896 to 1981. I have since been informed that these measurements were not official and may have been inaccurate. A 102′ hull can be easily made from the existing cast resin part. I will make the modification if requested. If a 102′ length is indeed correct, a new hull, thoroughly re-researched, will be prepared.

It is constructed with a cast resin hull, a precision cut styrene superstructure, custom brass railings and stairways derived from the actual ship, and many cast resin parts and details. The fire monitor is a 3D printed part especially designed for the Edna G. The styrene superstructure allows for interior details and lighting, and doors that can be modeled opened or closed.

  1. was considering purchase of model, but vessel physically field checks at 102 feet in length…. kindly advise if the model’s “extensive measurements of the actual museum ship” are scaled at 110′ as noted above or at 102′

  2. Without the generous margins for the top rail and stern rub rail, it measures 104.6′. The margins were meant to be reduced after casting. Reducing the length to 102′ would not be difficult. The measurement of 102′ is from what point to what point? Is it overall length from top of bow toprail to stern rub strip? I’ll reduce the hull for you, but now every other measurement is in question. I took the word of a team that measured the boat. I’ll also be glad to redo the hull with certified dimensions. I took this on more than two years ago for a project that fell through.
