........... and on that bombshell, that concludes the 2017 Whiffie Awards show for another year.

(I hope you all have good memories and can remember some of the whiffie winners creations..??!) :banghead:

I hope you enjoyed the show and a hearty congrats to all of this year's winners, a well done and pat on the back to those nominated and finally a big thank you to you the members who voted. Without the support from you it`s just me and that's a tad boring, if not sad..!!

The Academy is now off to rehab and some corrective RSI surgery.
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 will look forward to seeing you again for the 2018 Whiffies, albeit at a slightly earlier time of year and totally Photobucket free. :thumbsup:

Thank You, one and all. :)  It is an honor and a privledge to have won Best Ship and the Top Gun categories. It was a tough and long model project. But I couldn't have done it without all the support from the fine WHIFers here at this wonderful forum. Thank You!  :drink:
Modeling isn't just about how good the gluing or painting, etc. looks. It's also about how creative and imaginative you can be with a subject.

WOH!! :o

TWO Whiffies! I'm beyond happy, I'm ecstatic!! ;D ;D ;D ;D :party:

Thank you, tc2324, for all of your effort & time in compiling these awards shows. Without you they may have faded into memory. :bow: :bow:

And a massive "THANK YOU!" to everyone who voted for my builds, your recognition is greatly appreciated. :bow: :bow:

To all the other winners a heart-felt "Congratulations, on all of your excellent work & well deserved recognition!"

Two Whiffles?  Two Whiffles?  I am honoured and surprised.  I'd first like to thank my family, my wife and my kids, then my agent and of course the judges, my peers.  Then, I'd like to speak about the plight of the Fairy Penguins.  A much maligned predator species which inhabit the south shores of the Australian continent, presently beset by habitat destruction from human beings and predation from the common cat and dog, as well as the domesticated rat.   They deserve our protection!  You should all adopt a Fairy Penguin to save it from the humans, cats, dogs and rats!   May your god/goddess/higher being that you choose to worship, bless you all...    :wub: :wub:

Ps. Thanks to tc2324 for undertaking the show.   :thumbsup:

Why, at yours, of course... hope you're firing up the Barbie already - we're all on our way...  :lol: :rolleyes:


Thank you and well done everyone.  You all did very well.
To Photobucket, your timing is exquisite.  May you burn in the fires of heck for all eternity.
And Rickshaw, the PC police will be calling shortly to make an appointment for your re-education.  "Fairy" Penguins indeed...


- Can't be bothered to do the proper research and get it right.
