Can you send to support at wingware.com details on the file layout and the 
Python Path you've got in your project properties?  The example you gave
works for me with two files in the same directory.  My guess is Wing
isn't finding Model.py for some reason unrelated to that particular
content of the file.

Thanks for pointing this out.  It was a long-standing error in the code
that builds the exception message and has been fixed in our sources.  I'm
amazed this wasn't reported sooner!
