"USS LEXINGTON"

Corpus Christi, Texas

A while back, I was contacted by the Texas Navy

Association.  They had previously seen the 1830’s Texas
Navy display I did at the Military Forces Museum at Camp
Mabry in Austin, Texas.
They liked it a lot and wanted a similar type display
installed on the aircraft carrier USS Lexington in Corpus
Christi.

After meeting with them on board the ship, I laid out a
plan of what I would like to do.  They liked it and I went
to work.


My responsibilities included a 16’ long hand rail with two
gun ports supporting two of my concrete cannons with full
rigging.
A shot display table with quite a few of the projectiles in
use in the early 1800’s and a full set of gun serving
implements.

It was a fun job!  
With my lovely assistant’s help, we got everything made
and delivered it to Corpus Christi.
Over two days, we moved close to a ton of our display
pieces on board the Lexington and set up our display.

It turned out really nice.
It is an honor to have our artwork displayed on board such
an historical ship.

If you are ever in Corpus Christi, the ship is worth
seeing.  While there, look up our 1830’s Texas navy display.
