photo taken by U.S.S Enterprise reconnaisance plane June 14th,
diorama is called 'Escort Duties' and shows the Otori and
Hayabusa in harbour with the Sakura tied to mooring bouys.
Finally there is an Ukuru class escort pulling away from the
quayside and churning up sediment from the sea bed.
the ships are kits - Otori and Hayabusa are from the Skywave
which contains two Otori class escorts. The Ukuru is also
product. The Sakura is the recent Tamiya kit.
the vessels have had the bridge detailled and the masts replaced
with fine brass wire.
is not an actual black and white photo, but Jason having some
fun with Adobe Photoshop!
