Design 125 - NY32 - Model Restoration

This beautiful model of a NY32 was built by A.C. Hawthorne in 1938. we don't know much about Hawthorne other than he served in the Ambulance Corps during World War 1 and donated this model to the North Carolina Maritime Museum in 1986 when he was 87 years old. It has recently been restored to it's former glory.

Here's a detail image of the cockpit.
