Nice Model of Sunderland ZK-AMK

When I was last through Wellington airport I took a wander up to see the new Rydges Hotel which had been recently opened.  I wondered if there would be any aviation related themes and I came across this really nice large model of the New Zealand National Airways Corporation Short Sunderland III ZK-AMK "Takitimu" in a glass case.

The real ZK-AMK was ex NZ4104 of the RNZAF.  It was registered ZK-AMK in December 1947 and operated from nearby Evans Bay to the Chatham Islands.  A very good summary of NAC's Sunderland operations to the Chathams can be found on our sister blog:
