I agree--very cool! The layout is very, very nice. I have a view of Pearl Harbor from my front yard. I could see it from my library until my neighbor planted trees that obstructed my view.

It's nice to see the diorama again, too. Such a fine job. Every time I see it I think of it as an architect's model.

Great Build Jeff!

But isn't the Pit-Road Maryland just the re-boxed Trumpeter Maryland styrene kit? Unless you mean the old Pit-Road resin kits.
