Solent Mk4

With its roots firmly entwined in a WWII aircraft (the Short Sunderland) that combated German U Boats and was in combat in the Korean war, the Short Solent was operated as a civilian carrier in Australasia, the UK and the USA in the late 40’s and 50’s.

This model, from MakeCNC.com has been, without question, the most complicated build that I have assembled so far.  224 individual parts may not be the most of any model (not that I have been counting), but the assembly took a couple of nights.  And plenty of glue.  The hot glue gun is proving particularly useful for these models.

Made from 3mm MDF, using the #45190, 1/16th straight router bit from Toolstoday.com on the TorqueCNC.
