I have completed two 1/350 scale battleship models with significant detail. One is the USS Texas, BB-35, a New York class battleship, which was commissioned in 1914, but which I built in its late World War II configuration and paint scheme. The other is the USS New Jersey, BB-62, an Iowa class battleship, which was launched in 1942, but which I built in its modernized configuration and paint scheme from the 1980s. Both are now museum ships and can be visited and boarded. USS Texas Museum Ship USS New Jersey Museum Ship The Texas had a main battery of ten 14" guns, displaced 33,000 tons, and was 573 ft. Long. The New Jersey hade a main battery of nine 16" guns, displaced 58,000 tons and was 887 ft. long. It is hard to appreciate the difference without seeing them. So, what follows over the next few posts are pictures of the two vessels side by side and compared. The difference in size is quite apparent, as is the hull form.
