`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...............

Post by: PR19_Kit on March 04, 2018, 12:52:05 pm
Oh..........Wow..........What can I say?

I'm so flattered that the Academy thought so much of my efforts, I'm so embarrassed.

I'd just like to thank all of you, and of course my producers and directors and...............Oh sorry, wrong speech.

I mean I'd like to thank my Mekpak supplier, Thomas Dizzyfugu for supplying the TONS of Presto putty that I had to use, my local hardware shop for the square miles of wet and dry paper, my local Hobbycraft for the plastic beads, my Mum, my Dad, my primary school teachers (all 14 or so of them...) and you for voting for the Monterey and its trolley.

Seriously I'd like to thank the late Mrs_PR19 for putting up with me all the time I was building the Monterey. I couldn't have done it without her, and a couple of times I was going to give up, but she always loved flying boats and it's the first one I've built for years, so she kept on egging me on.

Wow what a show!  Great job- much more interested in this than any Hollywood real-world show!

Well done and thank you to the producers.

Amazing what can happen to a stuffed Koala when people are so careless. Sniff! Sniff!  Last time I try and bribe the voters...

Told you, the damned thing bit me! Bloody splitters, climbing up into the trees! :angry:

Oh.  You must have gotten one of the Drop Bears by mistake, mate.  Sorry.  That was meant for Kit.   :banghead:

Ummm I am quite embarrassed as I had no idea I was even nominated in this until I got a PM tonight about it. Thank you all very much for the honor of the 2 awards. I'll be printing out my certificates tonight when I can get my printer to work

Thanks again
Simon

Glorious.   :mellow: :mellow:


What fun....  last year was the first one of these I had seen and at the time I was gearing up for the weekend. I found it to be great fun, so, this year I did the same and saved viewing the thread for Saturday night.  ;D ;D 

Congrats to all the winners and salutations to the participants! (Hey, I'm one!! How 'bout that, never would have seen that coming a year or two ago)

Thanks TC!

Congrats to all the winners.

Great job TC.  Good to see my crazy idea is continuing 10 years later.

Oh, and I don't remember any cow.

Whoa.. Late to the show. Gotta confess I was a bit busy with other things. My congratulations to all the winners and I have to say, I am amazed at the quality of all of your work. I am both surprised and chuffed you liked my diorama so much.
Thanks.
