I wouldn't want to be on either of those ships.

Well done conveying the essence of a rough crossing.

Excellent diorama, but not accurate for PQ-15. For the destroyer as modeled (a Repeat-BENSON class in Ms 22) to be involved, the timeframe would be more like winter 1942.

The only BENSON class destroyer involved with PQ-15 in April-May 1942, was USS MADISON (DD-425) and that was with the separate covering force. She was an original group BENSON class unit, and at the time had five 5-in guns.

Sorry for the nit, but I think this excellent diorama needs a different title.
