"...A brother is born for adversity."
Solomon Islands, 1942. I modelled the New Orleans class heavy cruiser (textured as the USS Vincennes) to provide a big brother for BeyondVR's WW2 destroyer (on the right) in fleet scenes such as this- rendered in Bryce 6, postworked as a contemporary photograph using Photoshop.
The ship in the distance (three funnels) is the Australian County-class heavy cruiser HMAS Canberra. Both cruisers were lost in the Battle of Savo Island.
The Canberra is still a "work in progress" hence its distant position. I'm still collecting reference material to figure out its wartime details, secondary armament etc.
