The truth is even stranger than you think.  It may well  be that several of this community are actually working for M I nine and three quarters, or  MOD, or possibly even NATO, deliberately spreading disinformation and confusion.  Some of our more unlikely whiffs could well be true and other apparently OOB creations actually Whiffs.   I have cleared this suggestion with UNESCO, the UK government Department of Drains, Holes and Sewers, the local rector and an unnamed but senior individual at the GCHQ in order not to commit a breach of  the Official Secrets Act.


 

On the other hand, this might all be fiction and Whiffworld has triumphed yet again.

Yeah - the 'Whif model' is the thing that comes up first in a Goggle search, the Real version is buried in later pages...  ;D

And if I seem to disappear at any time later, you know what's happened... or you may think you do... ;D ;D

Every time I see the vicar of our local "High *" Anglican church he is hiding in some dark corner furtively using his mobile phone, so could well be one and the same ?

* We have two local Anglican churches ; this High one built in the late Victorian era which is a red brick, Jerry built monstrosity and another stone church built in the 1750's which is gorgeous

There are some noteworthy Whifs in the annual Silly Week postings at http://www.aircraftresourcecenter.com/, such as a GAF Corsair II, a Supermarine Stiletto F1e, a twin engined MiG-15 OPLR, a jet engined DC-3, and an Osprey Skycrane, and a What If Saab Tunnan was posted at http://cs.finescale.com/fsm/m/online/1581086.aspx. With his prolific output, which dates back several years, Kees Kuyper on the Aircraft Resource Center site might IMHO be worthy of being invited to this forum.

From what I could see before the Anti Ad-Blocker pop-up caused me to close the window it looks pretty good.
Although I have to question with the statement that 1/72 is pretty close to 1/50 (but I suppose it's all relative innit).

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

Interesting development: a photographer/illustrator stumbled upon my works on Flickr, and created his own interpretation(s) based on on a mecha pic.

And it is not meant derogatively. As far as I can tell, whiffing just fits the forum's bill and the authors there modify the content - but as long as the source is quoted, I am fine with that. Who am I to judge other people's imagination?

Exactly.  I once got metaphorically yelled at on dA for over-crediting.  But then, I've got one of those social science degrees, and its always better to oversource than undersource.

Must have missed that Lastochka Dizzy, it's a cracker! Looks like the old Esci Whiftastic Ka50 with Me262 engines but not sure what the wings and tail are from though?

Wings and tail came from an Airfix A-1 Skyraider...  ;) Built it several years ago.
