USS Iowa Project Evaluation

Pete was taken through one of the 16″/50 caliber turrets on the USS Iowa yesterday.  This site may make for an interesting project from a manufacturing and/or gaming point of view.  How would this turret be manufactured today?  Would a gaming company be interested in the data/model if we were to scan and model it?  Stay tuned!
