The man behind the brush at Attention to Detail Painting, Juan Romero, studied decorative house painting in Spain before importing his expertise to America. All his services are insured, and they range from basic painting to marbleizing?a technique that creates a smooth, marble-like finish. They also include woodgraining, which makes a faux-wood finish and for a perfect opportunity to convince houseguests that the spare bedroom doubles as a woodshed. Juan and his team of professionals cover their bases with conscientious prep work and cleanup, and they?ll gladly offer clients complimentary opinions on redecorating options before beginning a paint job.
Spread across 50,000 square feet, the Armed Forces History Museum's collection boasts rare military vehicles, re-creations of historic battlefields, and artifacts with a militaristic purview that spans from WWI through current conflicts. Smoke machines and battlefield sound effects simulate the fog of war in a replica WWI trench and a Japanese battleship flight deck. A motion-simulation theater hydraulically emulates pitch and yaw as passengers' eyes alight with scenes from the Battle of Iwo Jima or Operation Desert Storm.
In the open terrain behind the museum, a fully functional WWII-era M8 armored vehicle seats four passengers in its turret and open-air compartments as it rumbles off-road for a quick thrill ride.
