Got this email regarding an article I wrote.... Have to "fess up" when I'm bad too. Sorry everyone...

Just received my March LSI and of course turned first to page 30 to read your article. Immediately the large photo of what appears to be a large scale model of the starboard amidships section of either the IJN Yamato or IJN Musashi captured my attention. (Based on the observation that the AA platforms forward and aft of the aft gun director tower appear to be on the same level I'd say it's most likely the Musashi).

I was shocked (Shocked I tell you!) to discover that the article discussed the battle of Jutland, an event that occurred 25 years before either the Yamato or Musashi were commissioned!

What is this world coming to!
