A Break in the Action
By Devin J. Poore
The following pages will contain a detailed description of my build of a diorama based on the above photo of the USS Juneau and USS Laffey. The photo shows USS Laffey (DD-459) alongside the USS Portland, transferring survivors of the USS Wasp sinking. In the distance the USS Juneau (CL-52) is visible. I will play with the positioning of the Laffey and Juneau a little in my diorama, to save space and to give the piece a little more visual interest.
The article is broken up as follows:
Part 1: Building the USS Juneau
Part 2: Building the USS Laffey
Part 3: Constructing the diorama and final photos
