The 2016 Whiffie Awards Show

(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac81/tc2324/84th_Academy_Awards_stage_zpsf7c3dbeb.jpg) (http://s888.photobucket.com/user/tc2324/media/84th_Academy_Awards_stage_zpsf7c3dbeb.jpg.html)


Welcome ladies and gentleman to this years Whiffie Awards and may I say it`s a pleasure to host this show again. It`s been a year of ups and downs, but thankfully I`m moving to a bungalow soon. The members of the What If fraternity have come together in one place to acknowledge their fellow members, (stop sniggering at the back…!), for their time commitment and work in producing masterpieces of what if magic.

Diversity seems to be the topic of this years award shows and I`m glad to say that the Whiffie seems to be the exception to the rule.
We have monoplanes, bi-planes, tri-planes, jet planes and propeller planes. I even suspect that one of the builds was a trans gender plane?

How diverse is that?

Could I also remind the audience to refrain from posting any comments until the closing post has been made. Thank you.

So....., moving on to the first category…….,

Well I really didn't want to be the first to reply as I'm feeling very humble and almost a bit embarrassed!

I was extremely happy just to have been nominated, but to win and win big against some truly amazing models and modellers...well I'm quite lost for words...which is strange for me.

A big thank you to everyone who liked my builds and voted or them, a do feel........shocked.

I must a huge thank you Logan Hartke for his beautiful profile that inspired the Panther, I was very worried it wouldn't live up to his profile.

Thanks to those behind the scenes who setup these awards, I know just how much work there is involved.

Again thank you everyone...now I'm going to have a wee lay down........

What a great Show, as usual, and thanks to tc2324 and the rest of the Academy for the VAST amount of work that went into the setting up of the classes, the sorting of the judging and the Show itself.  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I must admit that I thought the aerobatic airship display above the entrance to the Hall was quite outstanding and the work of genius. But it was a pity that the smoke-generating crew aboard #3 seemed to have forgotten that they'd reverted to hydrogen as a lifting gas for this one display. I'm told the crew only suffered second degree burns though........


And of course HUGE congrats to all the winners, I was pleased that many of them were on my fave's  list.  :thumbsup:

I'd like to thank tc2324 for all the effort he has put in throughout the year, especially over the last few weeks. It can't have been easy but the result has been a wonderful show this year! :bow: :bow:

I'd like to thank all my whiffing comrades who voted for me ... but there weren't any. :blink:

Instead, I'd like to thank PR19_Kit for the honour of being nominated into a category which, unfortunately, ended up with only one entry (Come on guys, spread your talent out a bit!). :thumbsup: :bow:

As a non-entrant, I can only say that the winners were all excellent and deserve all the Kudos they are receiving.  As a representative of the local Yeti/Yowie group, I am glad that you have all admired my beard and run your fingers through it's hairs.  I even washed it for the occasion and so there weren't many left-over bits from dinner in it.   Well done, one and all!   ;D ;D

I have to admit, I enjoyed the Airship aerobatics display but I had to admit I believed #3's "flame-out" was part of it.  I am so glad no one was permanently hurt!   ;D ;D

I must a huge thank you Logan Hartke for his beautiful profile that inspired the Panther, I was very worried it wouldn't live up to his profile.

I was just happy that someone was inspired enough by one of my profiles to actually put it in plastic (and resin, in this case). I was positively shocked that—of all the profiles I've done—someone would pick such a challenging subject to bring to the physical world! It's a testament to Rich's skill that he pulled it off so beautifully!

Well done, Rich! The award was well-deserved!

Cheers,

Logan

Fantastic selection of hard work to choose from...and a double whammy for me by sharing the award with one I voted for :thumbsup:. Cheered me up no end as I've been up the last few nights with the worst dose of man-flu I've ever had....actually no exaggeration required; watch out guys, this one's a killer.

Many thanks again as I'm very fond of my floatplanes :cheers:.

And congratulations to all the winners - great work this/last year! Surely a hard job to make the pre-selection, and the final voting was not easy, either.

I seem to have lost my watch at the after show party.  Rickshaw, can you please check in your beard to see if I left it in there when I went in to rescue Weaver.  It's an unobtanium cased Roleks on a  thylacine leather strap.

A remarkably good show. Congratulations to all involved in any way! In particular, the organiser/president of the academy, who surely deserves a REMARKABLE ACHIEVEMENT award for all of his work.

Tremendous effort on the part of TC2324 for organising this so a big thank you  :bow:

The quality of the winners was outstanding as were all the nominees. When you get a chance to look back at a years work via the wiffies it makes you realise just how many quality modellers we have.

So here's to 2016 or 2017 (I'm still confused  :blink:) and don't forget to make those nominations lads, it's easy...honestly  :thumbsup:

PS : What Airship ??????  :cheers: ;D

You didn't see the Aerobatic Airship Team doing their thing before we all went in?  :o

You must have been ogling all the crumpet parading down the red carpet then!  ;)

After a long time away from the forum (real life can be a real burden sometimes) today I finally had the chance to log on and read up.
And boy-oh-boy!!

A Whiffie? For me?

First off: Congratulations to all nominees and winners, you are all incredibly inspirational.
Thanks for the votes, dear whiffers, I feel very, very honoured and humbled to have my builds among all those great creations, and I never expected to win, never mind winning two of these beautiful awards.
And thank you thank you thank you TC and other members of the Academy for organising this wonderful awards gala for the umpteenth year running.

I'd like to thank the ancient Egyptians for starting this wonderful hobby, and messrs Styrene and Superglue for their wonderful inventions.

Oh and of course thank you mom and dad for locking me in the basement al those years ago. If it wasn't for the traumas you caused me I would still be building o.o.t.b. like other people*  :smiley:

Right, I'm off to the shops to buy some distilled happiness and celebrate like it's February 28, 2016  :drink:
Thanks again, and, yay!  ;D


*= not true that. We never had a basement.

Hi all,

I do apologise for the tardiness, the Academy will shortly be getting round to sorting out the winners certificates.

What would be of help is if the winners could confirm their email addresses to me via PM.

Thanks.

tc

Right all, other than a couple of winners who have been PM`d for their email addresses, all the winners should of received their certificates.

Let me know if you havent or if there is a problem.

Many thanks. Years since I've won anything ;D.

I put it up on the fridge and so far everyone's doing a really good job of pretending not to see it.

Thanks! I framed my last one and have it my garage by the bench, and my kids thought I was huge geek for doing so - so will have to do that again!

You should also be able to save the PPT as a PDF through the software, similar to a JPG export.
