Here at STEALTH, everything we do (design, engineering, fabrication, etc) is produced in-house. This means that we’re fortunate enough to see our projects come to life right before our eyes. We take our work very seriously, but we also like to have a little fun. So, while this partially completed steeple will eventually be a gorgeous concealment on top of a Maryland church, today we have turned it into our own X-Wing fighter in celebration of Star Wars Day! May the Fourth Be With You….always.
