Memorial Day - And Remembering Pearl Harbor

Recommended Posts

The original request for the Pearl Harbor National Memorial came from Wrench here:   https://combatace.com/forums/topic/94790-3d-object-request/?tab=comments#comment-767482

Today in the United States it is Memorial Day.  A time to remember and honor those who have died in service to our great nation.  And specific to this request, “The USS Arizona Memorial, at Pearl Harbor in Honolulu, Hawaii, marks the resting place of 1,102 of the 1,177 sailors and Marines killed on USS Arizona during the attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, and commemorates the events of that day.

I unexpectedly found some free time, and have been working relentlessly to get my version in a decent condition so I could post an update today.  Everything has been scratch built including most of the texture work.  It started off as just a quick hull mesh, but as time went on, I felt a sense of honor and patriotism in creating this – and that’s when things evolved.  With the state it’s in, dare I say you can even take a fairly convincing virtual walk-through of the memorial – overkill perhaps but I found it extremely gratifying.  I’m still making some overall form tweaks and other updates, but am proud to be sharing the latest progress especially today and hope it is a proper tribute.

That's far more than I could have ever hoped to see, let alone ask for
