This diorama in 1:350 scale, portrays the USS Zuni (ATF-95) along side the torpedoed and sinking USS Reno (CL-96). Zuni is preventing the Reno from capsizing to starboard. Zuni pumps out sufficient water to keep Reno on even keel and then tows her to safety. Zuni was built from Commander Series model of their ocean going tug. The Reno was built from Blue Water Navy's Oakland Class cruiser. Any and all comments welcomed.
