Being a lowly volunteer, I don't see the big figures, but I understand that we are in pretty good shape. We will have to go to the yard in the future, and there will be fundraising for that, but we are pretty good on the operational side.
I understand that New Jersey was taken over by the State due to the financial situation. She is fighting a bad location, visitor wise. You guys at Intrepid have a great location.
Are you looking to model her as built, late war configuration, or somewhere in between?
I am not a modeler, but as built would show the beauty of her design, with the anchor pocket forward, the 1.1's, and the .50 mounts. If I can help out with anything, please let me know.
