Well that question has came up again this year, what do you get your father (who has everything) for Christmas? I think this may be the first present that I will get him , that he will not guess.
It's a custom replica of his Cessna made out of corin. Some parts cut on the CNC but I did the majority by hand with jig saw, table saw, sanders etc. I bet it weighs 25 lbs. heavy duty .
And I finally set up my heli stands in my hobby room!

Ya I'll send your son an email and some quick tips and tricks. Honestly if you have 8 to 12 hours to waste and a few wood working tools then you can make one just like it or a heli. I'm in the process of making a MD500 replica out of corian. I couldn't decide if I wanted to do it out of wood or corian but the material we use at work with the color matching epoxy dries super quick and is very easy to work with. I love the stuff due to the fact that you can make huge mistakes and cover it up and glue it all back together before your boss even sees it, haha. The epoxy colors are so dead on and with a little sanding you can blend seams together and cannot find them unless the original knucklehead that screwed up the cut points it out! Haha.
Just like my heli stands, all seamed together out of scrap material but they are just as sturdy and strong as a full sheet of corian. The downfall is that they are super heavy but I love the way they look and is much better then sitting on the floor letting my dog trample over the canopys haha.
