And that concludes our ceremony for this year.

Congratulations to all the Winners.

The Academy wishes to thank the following:

Tojo633 for the designing and sending the Awards.
Martin H for the use of the What If logo.
Falcon who provided images for the Awards.
Jeffrey Fontaine for correcting links in the Voting threads.
AnthonyP for setting up the Whiffies Child Board.
Puddingwrestler and cthulhu77 for supplying humor.
Aeroplane Driver and Lancer for help fleshing out the original idea and categories.
And everyone else who took time to supply suggestions, made Nominations and Voted.

Without all of you, this effort would have gone like a JMN trying to decide what RLM color an unpainted wooden propeller on a Bf-109 was.

Woot! Obviously posting pics of Almirante Epanada grinning like a loon influenced people to vote for me.

Congrats to Phil for editing down my supplied jokes into useable formats - and yes, I supplied more and yes, they where worse (although I thought the limerick about the whiffies could have been useful...)

It was really good to see that only one model won in two categories, despite a lot of people fearing that the awards would be scooped by a limited number of whiffists.

I'm sitting in the staff room right now, watching the oscars (it's lunch time), and I must say our ceremony is better. None of that stringing things out and boring victory speaches... although I see that we have considerably fewer starlets in ball gowns. Commerades, we must rectify this for next year!
There are no good kits, bad kits or grail kits, just kitbash fodder.

HOG, you sleigh me.

PW, I was trying to work out guest presenters but couldn't figure out how to work it in with the forum.
As to the request for nicely draped starlets, the calls went surprisingly unanswered.
