Remains of an empire

It depicts a Japanese transport ship (or what is left of it) beached at one of the many islands in the pacific. The crew of a US Navy DUKW is watching the whole scene in awe, while some Marines search for some trophies or souvenirs.
With the exception of the 2 trucks and some of the figures the entire dio is scratch build in the scale of 1:72
