Midwest's Lobster boat


Newbie to forum:

Has anyone out there built the "Midwest" Lobster boat (30")?

My two cents worth on Vac - U - Boat --- They are a fun model to build, you can paint and run or you can detail them as much as you want. Phil has done a good thing for the hobby in getting a product for the beginner, as well as the advanced builder. The plans surpass anything I have seen any where - they are great!

Yours in model boating.

Kmot,
Not a 'Vac-U-Tug', but a 'Vac-U-Boat' "Towboat". Same company, different boat. Also handles great, does even better than the Tug as a rescue boat.
