Two pictures shpwed on the Navy's web site recently of a model built for the 1970 movie Tora! Tora! Tora!. The US Navy has been using the model in SOuthern California as a recruiting aid.

Here is an overall shot of the model with a Pearl Harbor survivor.
Another of a sailor setting up the model for a showing.

Tracy, a few years ago I saw this model on display at the museum aboard the USS Intrepid  in New York. I took some photos. It was an erie experience. My son had gone to see it a couple of months earlier in Dec. They also had many photos of men that had served on the Nevada when he went. He swore one of them looked exactly like his Uncle Bob, my brother. He wondered if it could have been my dad. By the time I went, the photos were gone. I often wondered if it was him.
