LOL! It is a bit of a scene stealer. Isn’t it?

Thanks Sean! Just permanently attached YG-17 to the base. In the process of detailing her with crew. One thing that always stood out to me was the amount of water her screw was churning up as the skipper tried to keep her bow up against West Virginia.

Thanks Matt!
I can finally start permanently attaching the small boats to the scene. First up is USS Hoga YT-146. Her story on that day is simply amazing. Of all the tugs in the harbor that day, whenever a photo was taken or film was shot, Hoga always seemed to be the one tug to be in the shot.
Here we can see her taking on USS West Virginia's fires head on. Two fire hoses can be seen putting out fires on West Virginia's boat deck.

Ok, back at it again. USS Tennessee has her new and improved masts installed and she is all rigged up and permanently attached to the sea base. When USS West Virginia settled on the bottom of the harbor she started to right herself a bit. This righting caused her to sandwich USS Tennessee between her and the mooring quays to the point that the quays had to be blasted apart in order to free Tennessee from her berth.

Thanks for the kind words guys! I really appreciate it. She is permanently in the water now. Things should move along fairly quickly now. I can't say enough about how happy I am with Steve's cage masts. They really make all the difference in the world for this project.

This is such a challenging subject because of the smoke and the water stream, say nothing about the cage masts and other details on the boats. The special challenge is that everyone knows what this is supposed to look like. And you have put even more pressure on yourself by posting the archive photos for comparison! Even the grungy Pearl Harbor water looks correct. So to say you have hit this out of the park would be an understatement. You put a nice base under it and it becomes a museum piece. Congratulations, Jeff. :jump_1:

Thanks Sean! Yeah, it’s been a long time coming but I’m starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Believe it or not but I originally built this West Virginia kit about 20 years ago.
Here is an overall view test fit of what I’m trying to accomplish.
