New Jersey in 1/350 scale

Recommended Posts

Ok I am stepping well outside my comfort zone on this build. This will be only the third ship I have built. So I go and choose the New Jersey with after market PE set and metal barrels and wood deck on order. The first night's work.

Hi, Warren,

 

I have to admit I do not build ships often (unless sci-fi space ships count), so I admire your diving into unfamiliar waters here. What is the base kit for this project? Is this a USS Missouri kit that you are switching to the USS New Jersey just to have an alternative vessel from the Iowa Class?

 

I will be a visitor to this page every time you post an update. I need to learn some things from you. Good luck!

 

Ed

This is the Tamiya 1/350 New Jersey. It is the late New Jersey with tomahawks and blackhawks.

Are you going to replace the ladders? You really should replace the ladders.

Ladders? Guess I should look into that. Wouldn't want to miss that now would I?

Six more turrets finished. These are the remaining 5" turrets on the modern New Jersey. They removed 4 turrets to make room for the cruise missile launchers. They also removes all the smaller AA guns. So now all the turrets are complete.
