It's The Whiffies (2009)
« on: February 22, 2009, 04:18:57 pm »
Good morning, good afternoon or good night (depending on were you are when you read this).

My name is Phil Peterson, Mini-Master of Ceremonies and this is the First Annual The Whiffies (much fanfare).

A funny thing happened to me on the way to the Forum (forum, get it).  
A local modeler asked me how would I describe a JMN?

I replied, “However you like, but it wouldn't be accurate!” (rim shot followed by groans in the audience).

At a recent contest the following was overheard during the judging. “That rope on the tank is coiled in the wrong direction.”   To which the reply was, “ Well, perhaps he was a leftist.”

Tonight we celebrate the best that What If Modelers offered during 2008 and there was much.  The Panel of Judges (OK, just me) spent many hours counting the nominations to see who made it to the final 5 in each category.  And then posted those out for the final vote (thank goodness for the Poll).

So lets get the party started with some individual awards.

Our first category did not get the requested five nominees and that is a shame because I am sure that there were many others that could have been selected.

The Nominees for Most Improved Modeler are:
  • Nils
  • Brian da Basher

And the Whiffie goes to Brian da Basher

Now we move on to the categories where not only the ideas are voted on but also the modeling skill itself.  First is a category that when the panel developed it, there was thought that there would be many examples but only two were nominated and when the Academy tried to find other contenders, none were found. So…

The Nominees for Best Raspberry Ripple are:
  • Aeroplane Driver's - Cossack F.1
  • Brian da Basher's - Se.10 Seaton

And the Whiffie goes to Aeroplane Driver's - Cossack F.1

Now a word from our Sponsors.
What, we didn’t get any sponsors?
Did you check with Revell, Hasagawa, Tamiya, etc?
Not even Twiglets?

Oh well, I guess we will just have to continue with the awards.
