I just voted in the Ship category. This says "2 votes each" but I can only make one selection...
Same issue in Sci-Fi category :unsure:

Sorry guys, all part of the fun setting these polls up. Sometimes you miss something.  :banghead:

Should be fixed now.

The Whiffie polls are now live so feel free to vote away. There is a lot to go through.

Another ill conceived, poorly thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

I'm shooting myself in the foot here but I can't stay silent ... :-\

My NARDU F4D-1P Spyray is a single engined jet &, therefore, is ineligible to be in the multi-engine jet vote.

Ya, thank you, tc!  :bow:
I imagine my brain would need a serious overhaul after that, if i had to do it and, i'm sure i'll need a few more vacation days after i'm done voting...  :o ;D

Mine does already and I've only voted half the list so far!  :banghead: :banghead:

Very honest of you Old Wombat. The Academy viewed the finished model pictures and genuinely believed it was a single exhaust for a single engine.

I can`t move it now as it`s had two votes placed.

Apologies for the mistake and providing no ones going to throw their toys out their pram, I`m going to leave it where it is and let it stand.

Tremendous work in setting this up Tony. Thank you very much indeed  :thumbsup:

Like Dizzy I'm going to take my time over this and leave votting until I get home and can do it in a more relaxed atmosphere. Currently on the family farm, 5 dogs in the house at the moment, one of whom is a mad Great Dane  ;)

Incredible work...many congrats.

Taken me most of the day on and off getting the votes in. I must have been out of it for awhile as I couldn't remember seeing half the entries :o

 Thoroughly enjoyable experience looking back :thumbsup:

Thanks for your work, TC! A really big job.  :thumbsup:
Also voting is a job, with so many categories and entries. And I too have discovered many models I had missed.  :o
Congratulations to all the entrants.
Owing to the current financial difficulties, the light at the end of the tunnel will be turned off until further notice.
