  1. Hi! After a break I'm back to ship modeling, and this time I'll share the build here aswell! So my next project is the Uss Missouri as she appeared on her last tour in the Operation desert storm. My first form of business is with the hull! Firstly all the details were removed from the hull. After this thorough sanding to get rid of the all the parting lines and minor damages. Then the hull plates were masked and sprayed with Mr surfacer 500. This is by no means 100% correct so bare that in mind! Some other details were done with some masking tape on the top belts. After this Mr surfacer 1200 on top to check how it would look like. And closer look of the effect. Still waiting for the pontos set to arrive, then I'll continue to add the rest of the remaining drain pipes etc. details before continuing to the decks.
  2. Back in the early '80s, as part of Ronald Reagan's 600 ship fleet plan, four Iowa class battleships were refitted & recommissioned. I worked on two of them at Long Beach Naval Shipyard. They were the USS New Jersey (BB-62, NJBB, Jersey new in '82, at sea in '83), and the USS Missouri (BB-63, NBMO< Firepower for freedom). I installed their satellite communications suite. I even attended the commissioning ceremony for the Missouri in San Francisco. The ships were very expensive to operate, so they were decommissioned a few years later. This classified ad is real, although the ad is obviously a joke (I still have the original). It was published in the local San Pedro newspaper, the News Pilot. I thought you might get a kick out of it.

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model shipcraft.

The Nautical Research Guild puts on ship modeling seminars, yearly conferences, and juried competitions. We publish books on ship modeling techniques as well as our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, whose pages are full of articles by master ship modelers who show you how they build those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you what details to build.
