@Dr_Dirt found this web site.  It contains photos of a series of very realistic dioramas produced for Life magazine with the help of the US Navy to illustrate what happened at the Battle of Midway.  WoW!

Number 32 of 33, The small ship moving towards the Yorktown is the USS Vireo a Lapwing class minesweeper that was re-classed as a tug that got seven, yes seven battle stars as a non-combat ship. There is an old thread on her that sadly does not have the pictures anymore because they were on Photobucket. The detail in those dioramas is simply amazing.
