1938 Talon Class Offshore 36 Racing Boat

This full display model was designed and built as a commercial commission
for the Somerset restaurant in the new Viceroy Hotel in Chicago.
The model was commissioned by AVROKO, a design firm in New York.
They wanted a 1930's to 40's racing boat with a Formula one look.
This is my own design and is 36 inches long. Base is Oak and Mahogany.
I also created and made 50 racing boat half hulls, from 6 to 8
inches long for a wall display in the private dining room of the Somerset.
