I really wonder why this beauty has not received a nomination yet? So, I fulfill this duty. Best whiffy jet, and best travesty, IMHO: TomZ's subtle F-96 "Brightstar"


Definitely, it's a thing of wonder and beauty.  :thumbsup:

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

I'm humbled and embarrassed to have so many nominations, and to be counted in such fine company. At the prompting of some very polite PMs I've gone back to those nominated builds and re-linked the photos through Flickr so hopefully the nomination posts can be re-done.
I find it very hard to believe Academy would make a mistake like that he said sarcastically...

I just found out my Gnat was nominated (some time ago!) for a Whffie! It never even occurred to me that that could happen... I didn't know there was a "no clue what he's doing" category!?
Thanks!

Hi all,

Spent some time yesterday and today contacting members who were nominated for next years whiffie awards but whose photo links seem to be broken or are no working.

That`s pretty much  as the Academy can do, lead a horse to water and all that.
The rest is up to you guys to fix the photo links.

Any questions or issues, please PM me.  :thumbsup:

(ps...., I really, really really hate Photobucket..!!!) :banghead:

Hadn't actually realised I had been nominated.
