Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

It may look like the elves have been busy in Santa's workshop at the North Pole making lots of toy ships, but it is just Rieth Creations latest project.



This is restoration work for the National World War II Museum's Normandy Armada Exhibit. The hulls of the 28 ships had to be cut down to the waterline, cleaned and painted.


If you have a chance to visit the museum, check out this refurbished exhibit after the new year.

I built my first model when I was 6 years old. Unbeknownst to me, the kit box had been opened and the instruction sheet and decals were missing. It didn't matter. I had to have a model of the jet that flew over my house as it approached for landing at the Naval Air Station. I built it and painted the markings using the raised decal locator lines. It was messy, but it was mine. And I have had a passion for model making and thinking "Outside the box" ever since.

I was influenced by the film, Star Wars. I liked movies and I liked model building. I had to find a way to combine both into a career. I worked my way through college as a self-employed professional model maker, building architectural and engineering models.
