Without your willingness to "be there," this presentation would have been so mundane. With your help, it became a phenomenal, knock-their-skivvies-off feeding frenzy. It was awesome and so was your effort, energy and endurance.

We have worked together on many projects over several years and without exception, we feel that you have provided us excellent services, often under extreme pressure of time and last-minute revisions. You have done work with both craftsmanship and good humor –which are attributes rarely combined when on short deadlines!

Richard produced models that were extremely detailed and did so under great time pressures. He is extremely responsible, dedicated and talented and I would recommend him as a model maker without hesitation.

We are happy to recommend your firm. The models for the Disney office building as well as Scholastic office building were terrific. They were the key to the very successful presentations we made for both projects. We certainly look forward to working with you in the future. Bravo!

On behalf of our clients at Carnegie Hall and all of us who have worked on the design of the new Judy and Arthur Zankel Hall project I want to thank you and your superb staff. You created, in a timely fashion, a beautifully crafted replica of the new Hall.

I just wanted to thank you again for your fantastic work. I especially enjoyed working with you and appreciate the care and creativity with which you approached the unique geometry of the tower. It is very reassuring to work with someone who can address the challenges of an unusual design and solve them with imagination and technique.

Richard understands projects. He does invaluable work in interpreting the project. You may have already formatted ideas, but he can help you conceptualize.

Your model of South Street Seaport Museum is a great success. There was no other way to convey the complexity of the project, from the richly detailed masonry of the historic buildings to the transparency and delicate detail of the new building, other than through a large, highly detailed model. The fine accuracy and delicacy of your work made the project instantly understandable to any viewer, and contributed greatly to the positive response we received from both the client and from the Landmarks Preservation Commission.
