Amazing diorama (created by René Hieronymous from Austria) show the famous Kamikaze attack on the USS Missouri on April 11,1945. The japanese Zero crashed on Missouri’s starboard side, just below her main deck level. The battleship suffered only superficial damage, and the fire was brought quickly under control.

The damage was never repaired and the minor dents along the railing can be seen to this day.
I know 'cause I saw them. Very cool. :cool:
Tough times when you give your life for some dents. :(
