50th ANNIVERSARY MODEL 1961-2011 Scale 1:100

This 50th Anniversary Edition is limited to 50 numbered models, each comprising 44 parts, assembled during the weekend of the Anniversary by students from the Victoria University of Wellington School of Architecture and supplied with a matching custom fitted storage box that doubles as a display plinth and contains an engraved token denoting the Limited Edition Number. The name of the model assembler is recorded on the Certificate of Authenticity that accompanies the limited edition model.

The kit was designed by Hamilton modeler Tony Richardson using Inkscape vector graphics, then laser cut by Ponoko in Wellington from 4mm Italian poplar plywood donated by Plytech. The model is as close to scale as is possible with the materials available using this technology.

This Limited Edition will never be repeated, as the patterns for the model have been permanently erased.

Price: $300 incl GST + post and packaging. (free delivery in Wellington CPD)

The model is also available in a Standard Limited Edition of 25 un-numbered copies supplied as a DIY flat pack comprising 48 parts and without the storage/display box. Included are the assembly instructions, PVA glue, pegs and assembly jig. Some minor beveling is required for accurate fitting of the four roof valley beams.

Price: $250 incl GST + post and packaging (free delivery in Wellington CPD)
