This is an unassembled multi-part kit intended to help convert any World War Two configuration Iowa class battleship model kit to USS New Jersey BB-62 as she appeared from late 1943 through 1944.  It is not suitable for Vietnam War- or Desert Storm-era configuration models.


This model is intended for experienced modelers. Significant modifications to your plastic kit's parts will be needed to use this model.

In addition to the round bridge, there were subtle differences between New Jersey's bridge and those of her sisters.  Many of these differences are captured in this design.  This is NOT a duplicate Missouri bridge with a round front.

From Wikipedia: "USS New Jersey (BB-62; "Big J" or "Black Dragon"[2]) is an Iowa-class battleship, and was the second ship of the United States Navy to be named in honor of the US state of New Jersey. New Jersey earned more battle stars for combat actions than the other three completed Iowa-class battleships, and was the only US battleship providing gunfire support during the Vietnam War."
