Description

BB-62 "New Jersey" is the second of the US Navy’s Iowa-class battleship. The ship has a gross tonnage of 45,000 tons, a speed of 33 knots, and is equipped with nine 16-inch naval guns. It was launched on September 16, 1940. Construction started at the New York Naval Dockyard on May 23, 1945, and officially entered service on May 23, 1945. "New Jersey" is regarded as the sister ship of the "Iowa" battleship, which was designed to fight against the battleships of other countries during World War II. The "New Jersey" ship has a narrow hull, only 108 feet. This is designed to enable the ship to pass through the Panama Canal at any time and perform combat missions in the two oceans. Like "Iowa", after World War II, the "New Jersey" battleship participated in the Korean War and the Vietnam War. In 1980, it updated its electronic and weaponry equipment, and participated in many US military operations in Nicaragua and the Middle East. After being retired from service, the "New Jersey" was converted into a naval museum, recreating its former glory in another area.

    USS Iowa 1/700

    So, we are not model builders, but my son needed one for a school project specifically on the USS Iowa. This LITERALLY was the only thing I could find that was a reasonable size and cost. The instructions are virtually non-existent and it is clearly intended for someone who is a skilled/experienced model builder. Anyway, my husband and son are making progress and we hope to get it finished in time.
