Featured Ship Model - "USS WASP" - 1807

By Tom Ruggiero

The Ship Model Society of New Jersey is dedicated to the pursuit and enjoyment of ship model building in all its forms.  We welcome those who enjoy or would like to learn more about our fascinating hobby.  Our membership spans all skill levels, from neophyte to highly accomplished and a wide range of interests,  from gadget guru to historical recreator.  Our meetings aim to share our collective wisdom and resources, and provide the opportunity to enjoy the company of other modelers.  We invite you to attend and join the fun.   

The Echo cross section project 

Several members of our group have begun building a cross section model of the English Echo class (1781).

This is an introduction to plank on frame model building just like the actual ships were constructed.  It is based on the Admiralty Models plans and a dozen of our club members are building her.
