2018 Whiffie Nominations with Missing Links
« on: October 21, 2017, 08:00:37 am »
Big post of nominations with lost images (just the 1st five pages of the nominations thread, so far):

Just missed 2016 but our flying Kiwi is on a role. So the first nomination for 2017 in the Sci-Fi section is Zac's Satellite Interceptor

http://www.whatifmodellers.com/index.php/topic,43165.new.html#new



A brilliant concept from TheChronicOne, the F/U-2 H.A.W.K.



Love the idea of the F/U-2 lurking well out of harms way above Vietnam, waiting to pounce on its victims  :thumbsup:

Build thread here;

Alvis 3.14159's Boeing F-26D

In the "a little different" and "Golf Course Survey Gear" categories?

Zac's Glorious Glenis micro light  :thumbsup:

.....and for the swords into ploughshares award, Zenrat Industries "Javelin Engineering Turbocat" .   Probably worth the Madison Avenue Advertising Trophy too, for an inspired backstory/text.

Very happy to nominate this by our good buddy Greg aka "strobez."      (It was hard to choose just one picture for this! )



Ain't that neat?!


Build here, pics and most stuff relevant to it are on pages 3 & 4. The rest deserves a good look, too.  http://www.whatifmodellers.com/index.php/topic,42817.0.html

IMHO, chrisnord's (very cute) S.H.A.D.O. Moon Vehicle deserves attention and might help populate the SF category:

Just to give the mod's a break, I thought I'd start this - others mind doing a few pages each? :unsure:

That's VERY good work there Wombie, well done.  :thumbsup:

How did you resurrect the pics that you've got there already?

I haven't resurrected anything, mate! If there are images showing, they were showing when I went through the pages.

This is about bringing attention to the nominations that have lost their links, either through the PB fiasco or other means.



If there are any images showing in my post above ... I can't see them. :unsure:

OK.  In the case of my builds that have been nonimated I have replaced the PB (hwoick ptui) hosted pics with new links to flickr.  I can't go in and edit the noms thread as I did not nonimate myself.  However, clicking on the link pasted in under the PB (hwoick ptui) "We Want To Go Bust" statement will take viewers to the original thread which will have visible pictures.
I have been through the entire noms thread checking but if I have missed anything (I would be surprised if I have not) then please pm me and I will make the required changes in the original thread.

That's really weird, when I first looked at your thread y'day I could see maybe 30% of the pics.

Now I can't see any, just PB icon after PB icon.  :banghead: :banghead:

About two months ago I sent a pm to all the members whose picture links were broken asking if they could restore them in the original thread, (not the actual nomination post), and I also posted this fact in the 2018 Whiffie nomination thread.

Most have got back to me and done so, some have just pm`d me back a picture of the build but some others have not made contact at all. It`s as much as I can do I`m afraid.

All good, mate! I was just trying to make it easier for you - a bit, anyway. :thumbsup:
