On Saturday, August 7, 2021, the Philadelphia Ship Model Society hosted a model show and display onboard the Battleship New Jersey Museum. Models were displayed in the wardroom and on the fantail, right on the former helicopter landing pad, under a large tent.
Due to some unforeseen circumstance, the contest never happened, and the day turned out to be a "display only" event. There were a variety of models, from plank on frame wooden ships, RC ships on fiberglass hulls, some large scale scratchbuilt models and a score of plastic and resin ship kits, with a few aircraft and armor models thrown in, just to mix things up. Modelers were also free to roam the historic ship during the day.
All in all, it was an enjoyable day. But then, any day you get to spend the day aboard such a legendary ship, and be surrounded by ship models and fellow ship modelers, is a good day!
