USS New Jersey Battleship in 3D

The pace of growth in the technology of Google Earth has grown so fast this year, it is sometimes hard to take notice of the more “mundane” additions. It’s been a while since I wrote about the addition of a 3D model in Google Earth. Thanks to a little tweet, I saw a new 3D model of the USS New Jersey Battleship which is located on the river in Camden, New Jersey – seen here with Philadelphia in the background. The model is viewable as part of the 3D Buildings layer (again, I think the layer needs to be re-named with all these non-building 3D objects). You can view it here .

The model was created by A R Baboon who has created many other models in the 3D Warehouse, six of which are in the Google Earth 3D Buildings layer.
