This is a diorama that took me WAY too long to build; off-and-on nearly four years.  Granted there were months at a time where I did no work on it at all, but it still is a long time.

The cruiser is the Yankee Model Works kit of the USS Juneau.  I built it almost out-of-the-box.  The destroyer is the USS Laffey; it is kit-bashed from a Yankee Model Works USS Farenholt and USS Aaron Ward kit. 

Lots of photos below.  I was practicing with the new hot-shoe flash I picked up for my Canon G2 and some of the shots came out great, some not so much.  I didn't feel like sorting through them.

You can read a full article on how I built this diorama on the Model Warships website.
