Bela Smith is 86 years old, a Navy veteran and a model ship builder.
Smith moved to Lebanon about 40 years ago, which is about the same time his interest in model building set sail, so to speak.
Now, he didn't start building models when he moved here; he's just built a lot more of them since he's been a Kentucky resident.
Smith is a veteran of both World War II and Korea. He completed his service with the rank of shipfitter third class.
What is a shipfitter, you ask?
