Lou Carabott presents his USS Wasp LHD 1 diorama, absolutely stunning work. The Wasp (LHD 1) is the lead ship of its own class of amphibious assault ships and the tenth ship in the U.S. Navy to bear that name. The contract to build her was awarded to Ingalls Shipbuilding division of Litton in Pascagoula, Mississippi, on February 28, 1984, and her keel was laid down on May 30, 1985. The ship was launched for the first time on August 4, 1987.
