Congratulations to all the winners and the nominees.  :party:

Major :thumbsup: to philp for organizing it all!
Cheers,
Moritz


Must, then, my projects bend to the iron yoke of a mechanical system? Is my soaring spirit to be chained down to the snail's pace of matter?

This has been a ton of fun to watch and goof around with.  :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Let's see where this winds up in a decade or better, eh?   :party: :party: :party: :party:

10 years from now the judging will be easier, we'll all be old geezers building 1/32 or larger scale kits

Yep, and I can always cut it down to 1 category, that would help.

Except me and the other infuriatingly young members of the forum. We will continue to build things in a real man's scale (ie: 72nd) and posting itty bitty little pics which can only be viewed with magnifiers!

 :rolleyes:
There are no good kits, bad kits or grail kits, just kitbash fodder.

Sent my Dad the link to this (ok, so I am a little proud ;D) and he had some comments he wanted me to pass along.

"I have just spent over an hour going over the material and I think You did an Outstanding job.  Must have been a lot of work for you and your helpers and I see a lot of post after midnight :-)
 
Wish I could make a comment because the big thing I noticed was that the people sending in comments used a civil language which I really find lacking in today's society.  That one point alone added a lot of creditability to the "whatif modelers,"  The winners had some great builds and the imagination boggles the mine
 
Could you make that one for me?  You could sign it Chief Pete and maybe mention that you know him as Dad-  Looking forward to see what they can build for next year.  It's come a long way since we put two pieces of plastic together to form the body of a plane hasn't it?
 
Great Job Son, Thanks for sharing it with me"

My Dad is a CMSgt (Ret) from the USAF with 28 yrs service including two tours in England (first time he met my Mom to be and the second time my younger brother was born there) and a tour in Thailand during the Vietnam War (Udorn AFB).  I watched him build models when I was 5 and started my own when I was 6.  He is the reason I gained an interest in aviation and Military History.  He also has the gift of gab which I may have inherited, just a bit.  Without him, there probably wouldn't be a Whiffies.  Thanks for everything Dad.

HI Guys!

Congrats for All! I'm very happy to see these beutifull models, in the topics, and in this competition! Proud to be here! (pls excuse me, that I weren't been here for a while, started in new job and have little time for forums... :( )
