So I believe this will fit the bill, errr build, lol

Tamiya’s 1/350 Prince of Wales. I added rigging and flags per the instructions. I did drill out the cranes and the funnel tops. Hoping that still qualifies as it’s just drilling thru thin plastic, albeit many times. I don’t think that’s major reconstruction but if you’ve got a thought on that let me know. Drilling out the main guns is covered in the rules so I know that is ok.

I don't know anything about whether it qualifies for BKB, but I think this is an outstanding model! Wow, what magnificent work! You can feel the adrenaline of the crew as they fight off the Japanese!

Except, in the end, they didn't....

I think putting it in an action setting on a simulated sea with attacking aircraft as you have done makes it a diorama. Ed will have the answer, however.

Beautiful model, by the way.

Thanks guys! 
 

this came about because one of the guys in the Dayton club gave me some tips on how to blend the 3 piece deck together. I had done KGV and was so wound up about maybe eliminating or at least minimizing those crazy seams I came home and started this one even tho i had a few others on the block 🤩 I just saw a post on the rule change for this year so this was already done. 
skyking, yeah i noted the dio comments in the rules and figure it’ll be a judgement call as they reference the sea not being out of proportion and not being the predominant feature. The planes are removable so if that would be the deciding factor I could opt to remove them and decide where to place it. For me it’s not a big deal. Just going to see where it lands now that there’s been a change since i built it. I enjoyed seeing what i could do with the plastic deck and  a bunch of vallejo paint mixes!

You're right. Maybe I should have said: ..attempted to fight off the Japanese..."

14:  Bases in General. Bases will be allowed in all categories and will not
be considered in the judging, except in the Vignette/Diorama
(Small/Large Composition) Categories. A base may be a piece of
undecorated wood, plastic or glass or it may simulate the natural surface
on which the prototype would be found. However, nothing other than that
basic surface may be used. ...  Ships may be displayed in water (no dry
docks). The base must not be the predominant feature of the entry and
must be of a size proportionate to the model. ... So, if you want to compete in a single-subject category, don’t
make a Vignette to see how far you can push the boundary

 

In light of this, I note you have waves breaking over the sides of the model.  I'd say that moves the model from a simple water surface to an integrated kit/base .. Thus a vignette -- but the Head Ship Judge is the man who knows.  More problematic is the drilling out the cranes and funnel tops -- again, the Head Judge is the person who will make that decision.
