New Jersey General Arrangement Deck Plans

These battleship New Jersey deck plans are the most accurate and detailed deck plans for an Iowa class battleship on the market today. No other plans come close. It took 4 years to draw these plans after pulling together a comprehensive archive of the original ship's plans (most of them on microfilm) and painstakingly stitching together each compartment, one by one. If you want to see the internal layout of an Iowa class battleship, the culmination of American battleship design and construction, these are the plans for you. No other plans provide this level of detail.

These battleship New Jersey deck plans depict the battleship as she appeared in January 1944, just as she entered service in the Pacific during WWII. The plans capture every aspect of the ship found on the original 1:48 scale detailed plans, including chairs, desks, table lamps, desk phones, typewriters, sewing machines, junction boxes, fans, fire control equipment, boiler and engine room equipment, hand lanterns, soap holders, light switches, and outlets, to name just a few of the items shown on these plans. In many rooms we even included the overhead ducting to give a feel for how the rooms were heated (and in some cases cooled). On the navigating bridge deck we have listed all the equipment found in the conning tower to give one an understanding for how much equipment was really packed into a very small space. These were big ships, but they had very tight quarters!

Because of the extreme detail found on the original plans, we required over 400 different abbreviations and more than 90 symbols throughout the drawings to adequately label and describe everything. If you want to walk through an Iowa class battleship and get a feeling for their construction, crew living arrangements, and offensive and defensive capabilities, these are the plans for you.

These drawings are an excellent complement to the battleship Tirpitz plans one can find one our Web site. The battleship New Jersey and Tirpitz represented the epitome of battleship design and construction for each of their respective countries, and using these drawings one can compare the different layout choices each ships' architect selected.

Our recommended scale print size is 1:192. You can definitely consider ordering a larger scale, but we wouldn't recommend anything smaller to ensure you can view all the text. Please check out our previews for the 2nd and 3rd decks below.
