Hi Barry here are some pictures for you, the shop picture is from our boat building class in 1977. We used Glen-L plans that year, you can see the Tornado in white and the Stilleto in the foreground, which I later bought from my class mate and put a 460 Ford engine with a jet drive.
The finished picture of my Tunnel Mite is at the lake where we lived. As you can imagine, I could not wait until I took it home... "It Floats!". I wanted the Tunnel Mite to look like the bigger tunnels so I designed the top deck to look like them, building and designing the boat gave me an "A". The canopy is made from 1/8" Mahogany. I wet the wood and bent it over the frames, the front I used canvas over frames and fared out with light filler.
Thanks! Dave Boxrud
