The Ship Model Society of New Jersey is dedicated to the pursuit and enjoyment of ship model building in all its forms. We are pleased to have them present an exhibit of ship models for one day only, Saturday, November 19th 11:00 am to 4:00 pm. Their members will demonstrate the building of a small model ship and will also be available for conducting appraisals for repairs of ship models that you may own. Their membership spans all skill levels, from neophyte to highly the accomplished and a wide range of interests, from gadget guru to historical re-creator.
We invite you to join us for this special event and to see these amazingly accurate creations.
As a special added attraction, “Augustin Fresnel” will make a special appearance at 2:00 pm to speak to us about the creation of his famous Fresnel Lens used for more than 100 years as a beacon of caution and direction for mariners worldwide.
