Default Midwest "Weatherly"

Hello all!
I have a problem I'm wondering anyone can help me with. My father has had a model of the "Weatherly" literally for as long as I can remember (I'm 33). I have come to the realization that he is never going to build it himself. I recently took posession of the kit (still in the box) in order to store it for him. I was thinking instead of storing it till the day he dies, I can build it for him so he can FINALLYenjoy the model. I have run into a snag though. I opened the box and there are no instructions. I do have the plans that came with it but it looks like there should be some sort of step-by-step instuction book or pamphlet. I contacted Midwest and they do not have anything on file for this particular model. I'm wondering if anyone has some instructions they can scan and email me or knows where I can get some. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

This lead my be nothing but if you are a good detective you might be able to track down the e-bay seller who in turn could put you in touch with the buyer of this Weatherly kit.
Just a shot - but better than nothing.

Good to this link and start back tracking. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Weatherly-Mo...p2047675.l2557

I sent the seller a message asking if he'd help you and gave him a link to this forum - Have not idea if "cartoondude62." will help or not.

If you haven't yet solved this dilemma, I have a complete virgin Weatherly kit and I'd be happy to scan the instructions for you. Mike Costello beach_bum_mike at juno dot com

Mike,
I missed your response years ago! If you're still around and the other is still on the table, I would be very appreciative.
Thanks!

Looks like Mike has not been back to the site since his initial post. He did however include his email address in his post that will likely yield a faster response. Alternatively send him a private message which may alert his email.

On a side note - looks like the full scale Weatherly is for sale presently. I have raced against her a few times in Newport. - https://www.yachtworld.com/boats/195...s#.Wde8CI5l6cE
