……….. and that concludes the 2019 Whiffie Awards show for another year.

As always we hope you enjoyed the show and a hearty congrats to all of this year’s winners, a huge well done and pat on the back to those members nominated and finally the usual big thank you to you the members who nominated and voted and quite frankly, keep me in rehab for a few weeks after the event.

In a few weeks or so, the Academy will be contacting the winners for an email address so that your winner’s certificates can be sent on to you.

The Academy look forward to seeing you all again soon for next year`s 2020 Whiffie Awards sponsored by `Perfect Vision`.

Thank you and Good night.

Congratulations to all the winners - tough choice, as usual, and again many thanks for setting this event up!

And I am really surprised about winning two categories - I had high (secret) hopes for the ChaDI vehicle, due its strangeness, but the Czech Dewoitine comes unexpected - and it is actually a shared win, since the original inspiration came from a profile, created by PantherG! Whoa!  :lol:

Well done everyone and thank you.

Now, to the afterparty.  I can't wait to get these thongs off, they're chafing something awful...

Oh my gosh, I won a Whiffie!   :o :o

I'm SO amazed, and overcome with emotion (has anyone got a dry hankie I can borrow please?)

I'd like to thank my producer, my director, my agent, the studio, the camera crew................... er, what?

It's NOT that ceremony? Oh dear, so sorry.  :-\ (blush)

In that case I'd like to thank Airfix, Revell, Heller, Matchbox and CRail, all of whom contributed to getting the Rotocrane onto the top spot.  :thumbsup: ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

And I'd like to thank the jury for voting, TC for organising it all and YOU lot for putting up with my ravings over the past year.  ;D

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

No, you cannot barrow a dry sporran!  They are live animals and the last time I saw someone try and blow their nose on one, it bit that person on the proboscis!   :banghead:

I must say, I am yet again disappointed.  My only entry this year didn't win.   I think I will have to start upping my bribes to you lot in order to win!

Well done, to all the winners!   Even being nominated is a prize in itself.  I thank you all for looking at my Mirage IVO (even if you lot didn't vote for it!).    :thumbsup:

Congratulations to all the nominees and winners! Thanks to tc2324 for putting this gig together  :thumbsup:

Considering the other nominees, I feel fortunate to have won anything, let alone getting a Top Gun Award!
