This small, sheltered patch of Pacific is more than a memorial, it is a war grave. Eternal resting place for over 1,100 servicemen who served and died aboard the Pennsylvania-class Battleship U.S.S. Arizona on December 7th, 1941.

*I'll have this MOC on display Sept 17th 2016 at Formation Day at CFB Esquimalt *
This is one of the best MOCs that I have seen in a very long time. It is creative, well-detailed and powerful. This truly is a masterpiece. I have used that word only a couple of time in describing a MOC, but this one definitely deserves it.
Positively brilliant! I love how you made the outline of the ship underwater and the Memorial itself over the ship. I visited the Memorial in 87" it was quite an experience I'll never forget as long as I live. You've captured the reverence , sadness , loss, resilience , and even pride I felt there. Amazing piece.
