1/600 USS New Jersey BB-62 (Kangnam)

This Kangnam model of USS New Jersey in its 1984 configuration is extremely basic and error ridden.  By referring to the Anatomy of the Ship volume on USS Iowa I was able to address most of the missing and incorrect detail, but those familiar with the class will note the funnels are still a little too short, and the number of windows across the front of the bridge too few.  However as a model to display with the Airfix 1:600 range it was one of few options available and the one with the most accurate hull.
