Model show onboard USS New Jersey

Hi everyone,
if you’re anywhere near the Philadelphia metro area August 3rd the battleship USS New Jersey is hosting their “modelcon 6” model show onboard in the ships ward room . While mainly a ship model show due to the location , I’ve participated in years past as an armor modeler and had a great time interacting with the ship’s visitors as well as the other model builders. A big bonus is if you participate you’re allowed to tour the ship for free.


One of the greatest adventures of my life is doing a sleep aboard trip with my Boy Scouts. The NJ docents do a great job and the ship was in really great shape, even if the bunks weren’t made for long beings such as myself.

Yes, I can attest to that. Did the scout sleep over in 2018 and think I still have a dent on the top of my head from bashing it numerous times on the corner of duct work 6 inches above it.
