No, the kit did not have a funnel neither did the 1:1 to my knowledge.

The hull is oversized. That is Lou's - his kit model slipped silently beneath the waves one day numerous theories abound, he blames the rear hatch. Everything but side-scanning sonar was uses but the only part recovered was the cabin which you see there. He had saved the remaining frame sheets and used them as templates to sketch out new ones then enlarged them slightly so now he has a supersized Wilder.

Hull Model Boats Group Gallery Site.

Found a pretty cool and, apparently, new web gallery of model boat pictures; the Hull Model Boat Group out of England. Check it out.

(We regularly have had a number of out-of -town folk come play with us including some participants from as far away as Washington state and British Columbia.)

Other than Sundays are there any other days the scale guys come out to play? I'm just finishing up my first build, the Model Slipway Wyeforce tug.

I started building back in late October. With a little work here and a little work there I projected a year for the build...until I saw the SFMYC schedule of events. For the past month pretty much all my little free time I had was put into building the tug. I'll see you at the tug fest.

Man that course looks like it took awhile to set up....I would love to drag my buoy snagger line though there and see how many I could grab in one pass...
