The Quarterdeck Society, Inc., a 501(c)(3) organization, is now accepting donations for the renovation and permanent display/home of this Battleship Nevada. This model of the USS Nevada BB-36 was built for and used in the movie Tora! Tora! Tora! which opened September 23, 1970.
Plans are to have her either on permanent public display near the front gate of Naval Weapons Station Seal Beach, when not participating in various parades around the Los Angeles Basin, or alongside the Battleship Iowa, if the Navy approves her coming to San Pedro. Because the Nevada has been stored outside in the elements for numerous years, the weather has taken its toll.
We now need funds to commence the renovation and start construction of the building she will be housed in. Any help you can give is sincerely appreciated. Checks may be made out to the Quarterdeck Society, of course cash is certainly acceptable also.
The Quarterdeck Society
