Garden State Shipyard

A WW1 Virbus Unitus sinks a WW2 USS North Carolina

If you are interested in building and fighting 1/144th scale model warships in New Jersey, you've come to the right place.

Garden State Shipyard is a building site and is dedicated to the building and battling of radio-controlled 1/144 scale warships built between 1905-1945. Email us at

Each ship is equipped with CO2 powered BB cannons. If too much damage is taken, the ship will sink. But don't worry, these ships are made to sink and be retrieved. Hulls can be patched in minutes. The repaired ship can be back in the water for the next battle of the day.
Ship building assistance is available.

This in not an expensive hobby. The cost to put a combat ready two gun Cruiser on the pond is around $200 (without the radio) . Battle damage repair, maintenance and ammunition make the operating costs around $50 to $75 per year. All though our ships are scratch built or from kits the process is within the capability of most modelers. New members are guided through the process of building, arming and combat maneuvering by the more experienced members of their fleet.
