And you can build it in 1/144, thanks to Welsh Models ... but only if you can find the kit which has been long-OOP. And a warning for Merlin, it is a vacform. Having said that, I do note that the only Short flying boat still available from Welsh, the Empire Class C, is slated for re-issue as a resin/metal kit.

Terry Patrick on the Small Scale Model Group on Yahoo built one of these years back, needless to say largely from scratch and with great skill.
I'm having trouble with yahoo at the moment so cant find the images.

Diverse Images (now Staples & Vine Ltd) created a metal Short S.23 Empire C Class.
(see here: https://144airbattle.blogspot.com/2017/ ... ss-by.html)

It may be a bit expensive to add the one above (and create it...)
But in the end, it could make a great model, with a diorama using the base of the Diverse Images model :?:

The Short C-class is one of my most wanted aircraft of all time. I wish Airfix would pull their finger out and do one.
