The 2018 Whiffie Awards Show

                                                                                       
 
 

 
`Ladies and gentleman,  welcome to the 2018 Whiffie Awards show.

It`s a special night tonight as it marks the 10th anniversary of the awards. One member of the forum all those years ago had a dream. His alarm then woke him up and he went down to have breakfast. While Philip was having that breakfast it suddenly dawned on him......., that there was no milk!

So he set off in his car down to the store to get that milk, when he had that eureka moment. Why not buy a cow and then he has milk all the time, no need to drive the car down to the store. The money he saved on gas would pay for the cow.

Sometime later that day, he mumbled something about a Whiffie Awards show to someone on the What If Forum. Amazingly the idea took hold and now every year we highlight the work of those members who dare to be different from your average rivet counter modeler.

This year has been no different, so after a short commercial break, lets kick off this special night with the winner of the first category...............
