Can't put it any better. Alas, missed voting while away in the Arctic -

Sounds intriguing

I find myself questioning Glenn's dedication to the hobby if he thinks that this is a sufficient excuse for not voting for the Whiffies! :angry:


I confess my backsliding weakness and throw myself on the mercy of my comrades. Instead of modelling in a nice, warm room I was freezing my proverbials off travelling North St Petersburg - Petrozavodsk-Rabocheostrovsk-Solovetsky island-Kem-Murmansk-Kirkenes-Honningsvag-Knivskjellodden-Alta-Tromso. Midsummer Day 20k yomp to the most northerly point of mainland Europe in snow, wind & rain was challenging for us oldies. At least it was just above freezing.
Museum of the Northern Fleet in Murmansk had Soviet-era guide (only Russian-speaking) who was so dire that i had to come on as sub to describe the British connections to our party. In contrast the Tirpitz museum in Alta was excellent; the enthusiastic Erik could not wait to show off his models (is everyone up for a 1/32 scale Tirpitz?), Johnny Walker mine & Tallboy bomb crater.
Have seen about the Photobucket problems so have created my first Flickr album, geared to this forum - hope it works and you find something interesting:


Fantastic set of photo`s Glen, thanks for sharing.  :thumbsup:

Tiger, Tiger!


Thank you all for the thank you`s.  :thumbsup:

At the end of the day this is all down to you guys, (and girls??), and I`m just the custodian of the Whiffie awards, (Phil`s still honorary chairman... ;))  arranging the polls and announcing the winners.

As I say pretty much every year, this is a little bit of fun for all of you and could not be done if it wasn`t for all of you so keep it up.

Absolutely  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Been to St Petersburg, fascinating city. Farthest North I've been is to the Far North of Finland but that was business. Someone built a stainless steel plant up there, bloody freezing so you were glad for the Arcs  ;)

Farthest North on holidays would have been Anchorage ; I think

Agreed, I think that these piccies can be used as a "Get out of gaol free"  card if formally charged with non-voting.

And I add my thanks to everyone elses for the work of tc2324 in  keeping the academy in order.  Might I suggest that now might be a good time for you to have a brisk lie-down with appropriate quantities of sustaining/revitalising liquid to hand.

woops sorry I was in the dunny and missed the whole lot thanks for the nomination and award - awesome  :thumbsup:


Congrats to all the winners and especially to c2324 for continuing this tradition that I started all those years ago.

Looking forward to next years batch.
