Apologies for that. I could blame my dodgy eye but in reality it was word association. I will amend it now and seek some form of forgivness

Done

Dear Whiffers,

With just over 12 hours left officially to go for nominations to be made and put forward, the Academy will keep the the nomination gallery open for a short period of time so that members can review threads and nominate any candidates that may of been missed.

As is usual, the nominations have been heavily aircraft nominated, so it may be a good chance to look over the other type of what if builds like ships, tanks and artwork.

The gallery will close at approx 8pm BST on Sunday 3rd January with the awards show scheduled for early/mid February. (More details on this soon).

As a newbie who has only recently discovered this thread can I thank Nareses2 for nominating some of my WW1 whifs and follow up by saying the standard of the entries is really top notch.

Regards, Steve

Best Royal Navy Vessel  Category: Weaver's HMS Cumberland

I've only just noticed this nomination: thanks very much!

I should point out for judging purposes though that all I did was modify Hood's profile of a Country class destroyer: I could never have generated this profile from scratch.

Malaclypse the Younger: Everything is true.
Neo: Even false things?

The rest of us usually modify plastic models Weaver so don't put yourself down. The back story is part of the "whole" as well and once I eventually get hold of a County Class destroyer I intend to change it into the Cumberland.

You might find that tricky: Cumberland is longer, wider and deeper than County as discussed on my profiles thread. If I was doing it, I'd start with a larger hull nicked from something else, then transfer the Airfix bits onto it. Mind you, some of them arn't exactly brilliant either...

A little later than planned, (due to watching a 3 hour documentary on the making of Star Wars so completely understandable...), this thread is now locked.

Now the Academy can start the mind blowing task of shifting through the nominees....  :blink:
