The team creates an exhibit that showcases the St Petersburg Museum of History’s Lady of the Nile side-by-side with the world’s most well-known Egyptian mummy.
The team builds a full-scale midget sub, the WWII Seehund, for Tampa Bay History Center, to help visitors understand the extreme conditions faced by Nazi sailors.
The Museum of Science and Industry is looking to expand their space race exhibit, and they know just the team to help them do this: Creative Arts. The team agrees to build the iconic Apollo 13 lunar module, the hero craft from the perilous Apollo 13 mission. Creative Arts will also build a heat shield for the museum's existing Mercury capsule. In 1970, a mission to the moon turned into a story of survival when an oxygen tank exploded. Their command module disabled, the three-man crew was forced to take refuge in their lunar module. With a lot of ingenuity and a little bit of duct tape, the Apollo 13 crew made their harrowing journey home. On top of the pressures of the space race exhibit, Creative Arts has taken on another, more sentimental project: a recreation of the William Wallace sword.
Creative Arts is building the Bell X1 for the Armed Forces History Museum in Largo, Florida. American pilot Chuck Yeager flew this experimental rocket plane as he attempted--and succeeded--in breaking the sound barrier. This record-setting flight was the envy of the world as several countries had been trying for years to build and fly a plane fast enough to break the speed of sound. Roger and his team have a unique challenge as they choose to display the airplane suspended form the museum's ceiling and not resting on the floor. The Bell X1 must be light enough--and safe enough--for elevated display without compromising authenticity of the iconic aircraft. Creative Arts will also build a Pennsylvania Long Rifle for the Florida Frontiersmen, a local non-profit group that wants to present the firearm as a scholarship award to one of their young members.
The Sarasota Classic Car Museum hires the team to build a full-scale replica of the President Abraham Lincoln’s funeral carriage, which carried his body from Washington, D.C. to Springfield, IL.
Creative Arts has been commissioned by the Tennessee Museum of Aviation--home to one of the best historical aircraft collections in the country--to build the Skycycle X-2, the rocket used by Evel Knievel in his most famous daredevil stunt. Knievel used the Skycycle to attempt an 1,800 foot jump across Idaho's Snake River Canyon. Creative Arts will bring this flying machine to life, focusing on the streamlined fuselage and minimalist cockpit, the fighter plane-inspired nose and tail, and the signature paint scheme that matched Evel's flashy personality. The team will also be building President Kennedy's Resolute Desk for the retired mayor of Tampa.
