In a small thread I posted a few months back, I bemoaned an accidental crushing of my 1/700 scale Akagi with my diorama platform. Hope lives for any that have also accidentally demolished a prized model. I am glad to say that I hired a 1/700 dock yard crew of Lilliputians and put them to work making repairs. The digital photo submissions will show the Akagi in dry dock undergoing repairs by the Lilliputian dock workers, her re-introduction to service, and then her subsequent loss at Midway. Some of this story is historical while other parts are nautical nonsense.
