We could always develop a sister board - one of those anime figure model boards - plenty o' scantily clad females there!
There are no good kits, bad kits or grail kits, just kitbash fodder.

You all took on a huge project with this year...hopefully, it will be simpler for you on the next!  Wonderful job, and if you really want semi dressed starlets, just let me know. :)

This is the sort of thing that really makes me love this site, it is just nothing but fun, and hashing up some kits to make something that hollyweird hasn't even dreamed of.

Wonderful. 

I'd also like to thank the What If Academy, my mom, and my understanding wife. I have to go cry now, and take some percocets. Or white zinfandel. Or both.

Hey don't forget to add your 2 cents on something political too.  :rolleyes: (remember you build plastic models, which makes you qualified to solve all the worlds problems  ;D)
 
 This was a great idea from start to finish and a huge undertaking, Thank you Phil for making this happen i know it was a lot of leg work  :cheers:

Congrats to all the winners, unbelievable job and excellent competition all around

Wow!!! Thanks folks - much appreciated.  honestly though, I have to thank the following members who made this possible:

John, aka Maverick;
Mark, aka BadersBusCompany;
Jeff, aka blackops;
Jon, aka joncarrfarrelly

and of course, Jeremy (aka Rallymodeller) whose idea it was to begin with!!!

Regards,

PS.  I would have posted pics of scantily clad females making political comments, but I like to leave that sort of thing to the Brits.

Congratulations all round - this really shows the depth of talent we have on this board.  I feared that Baz and Greg would sweep the board, but was delighted to see that they didn't.

A big round of applause to Philp for all his work in putting this together - hopefully a few lessons will have been learned and it won't be quite so much work next year ;)

Duh........  :blink:

The significance of the date has just occured to me , the juxtaposition of the Oscars night (after the umpteenth repeat of 'Miss Kate's' speech on BBC1 Breakfast....) and the Whiffies night.......

What I want to know is where did the Whiffies' Red Carpet get to? And do we get to see photos of all the winners posing for the media?  ;D :lol:

Seriously though, a neat idea, and it all worked out wonderfully. Well done Philp and others on the team, and well done all the winners too.  :cheers:

Thanks to....
