May I propose to the Academy our colleague Zenrat's  heavy construction equipment.  A worthy addition to the wheels and tracks category.

(He says he wants to do more work on it. I reckon it's worthy of a nomination as is!

Thanks, I do appreciate that but can I be allowed to finish it?  I don't have much to do now.  I have a May 19th deadline and i'm confident it'll be done by then.
There will be better photos then as well.

I'm sure that the Academy will allow a degree of gilding the lily.

  Members of the Academy, please will you allow this nomination to stand even though the artist wishes to indulge in a modicum of  final titivation?   It might be considered the equivalent of a "Director's Cut"

I would like to please ask that nobody nominate my Iowa Carrier Conversion model which is here.
http://www.whatifmodellers.com/index.php/topic,43100.0.html
I don't know what the official rules are for whifs that are built by more than one modeler, but I would tend to think my Iowa carrier model would be ineligible from being nominated since I did not do the majority of the work in building the model.
So........I am going to bow out of the 2020 Whiffies. Sorry, folks. :( :( :(

Simplest solution to my mind would be to nominate both the builders as a joint build ?
Title: Re: Your Chance To Sway The 2020 Whiffies
Post by: philp on January 31, 2019, 07:15:31 am
When I created the Whiffies all those years ago I pretty much created the categories based on what was nominated.  I see no reason a joint category could not be set up if there were say at least 5 entries to choose from.
Would be a great opportunity for someone who prefers cutting and rearranging plastic but doesn’t care for painting and someone who loves to paint and finish but just hates PSR.
Will leave it to TC to decide as he now has the reigns.

Sorry chaps, been a little busy with a certain upcoming Awards show.  :angel:

Anyhoo, so reading the first post of the build thread, it would appear that an individual started the build but then gave it up and a forum member took it on and substantially  completed it themselves to a high standard.

Yeah sorry, don`t see what the problem is here? Perfectly fine to be nominated as an individual effort as far as the Academy is concerned.

Someone please do.  :thumbsup:

I had a vague recollection it had been nominated, but thought it was last year and couldn't find it.

My own view is that it is now finished so is eligible. However I will let the Honourable Master of Ceremonies decide on its eligibility.

rickshaw altered both the width & height. I find that by just altering the width, the height alters automatically to maintain the original dimension ratio;

e.g: rickshaw's [ img width=800 height=640]https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/47936886677_79f79fb3f5_b.jpg[/img ]
(https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/47936886677_79f79fb3f5_b.jpg)

       Mine [ img width=800]https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/47936886677_79f79fb3f5_b.jpg[/img ]
(https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/47936886677_79f79fb3f5_b.jpg)

Convair CV-710 Skylark

(http://www.airwar1946.nl/whif/images/CV710-0.JPG)

After it became clear that the US Air Force would not order the C-99 in quantity, Convair tried to sell a civil passenger transport variant, the model Convair 37 with a capacity of 204 passengers. Like the XC-99 this has the wing, tail and engines of the Convair B-36 Peacemaker bomber.
The model 37 was sold to a number of airlines as the CV-310 and was the start of a very successful family of airliners. Over the years the models 410, 510 and 610 were developed and sold. The ultimate variant was the model 710, or CV-710 which appeared in 1967. The CV-710 had a completely new fuselage and was the first of the so called “wide bodied airliners”. The CV-710 could carry 320 passengers in a 3-3-3 configuration.

You can adjust them yourself, all it takes is putting a "[space]width=(let's say)1000" after the first "img" & the image will be viewable.
