What a fantastic show! :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: Congratulations to all the winners, and to the other nominees as well,  who both humble and inspire the rest of us to "up our game" to [try to] compete next year. Now where's that bottle of scottish inspiration :cheers:

As a non-entrant, I can only say that the winners were all excellent and deserve all the Kudos they are receiving.  As a representative of the local Yeti/Yowie group, I am glad that you have all admired my beard and run your fingers through it's hairs.  I even washed it for the occasion and so there weren't many left-over bits from dinner in it.   Well done, one and all!   ;D ;D

I have to admit, I enjoyed the Airship aerobatics display but I had to admit I believed #3's "flame-out" was part of it.  I am so glad no one was permanently hurt!   ;D ;D

I must a huge thank you Logan Hartke for his beautiful profile that inspired the Panther, I was very worried it wouldn't live up to his profile.

I was just happy that someone was inspired enough by one of my profiles to actually put it in plastic (and resin, in this case). I was positively shocked that—of all the profiles I've done—someone would pick such a challenging subject to bring to the physical world! It's a testament to Rich's skill that he pulled it off so beautifully!

Well done, Rich! The award was well-deserved!

Cheers,

Logan

I'll echo that! It was flattering even to be nominated, but all the winners well deserved their kudos.

Fantastic selection of hard work to choose from...and a double whammy for me by sharing the award with one I voted for :thumbsup:. Cheered me up no end as I've been up the last few nights with the worst dose of man-flu I've ever had....actually no exaggeration required; watch out guys, this one's a killer.

Many thanks again as I'm very fond of my floatplanes :cheers:.

Thank you VERY much for organizing this virtual event (after all, it's the only REAL award show. Who needs films, anyway, when you have whifs?).  :thumbsup:

And congratulations to all the winners - great work this/last year! Surely a hard job to make the pre-selection, and the final voting was not easy, either.

 :cheers: :cheers:

Yahoo, and the tiny Albatros triplane made an award - thanks a loooot!  :lol:

Well done everyone.

Well done and thanks TC.

Thanks to the voters, your cheques are in the post.  I am humbled etc

I seem to have lost my watch at the after show party.  Rickshaw, can you please check in your beard to see if I left it in there when I went in to rescue Weaver.  It's an unobtanium cased Roleks on a  thylacine leather strap.

A remarkably good show. Congratulations to all involved in any way! In particular, the organiser/president of the academy, who surely deserves a REMARKABLE ACHIEVEMENT award for all of his work.

Tremendous effort on the part of TC2324 for organising this so a big thank you  :bow:

The quality of the winners was outstanding as were all the nominees. When you get a chance to look back at a years work via the wiffies it makes you realise just how many quality modellers we have.

So here's to 2016 or 2017 (I'm still confused  :blink:) and don't forget to make those nominations lads, it's easy...honestly  :thumbsup:
