Good choice, it's outstanding.  :thumbsup:

May I propose to the Academy our colleague Zenrat's  heavy construction equipment.  A worthy addition to the wheels and tracks category.

(He says he wants to do more work on it. I reckon it's worthy of a nomination as is!

Thanks, I do appreciate that but can I be allowed to finish it?  I don't have much to do now.  I have a May 19th deadline and i'm confident it'll be done by then.
There will be better photos then as well.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

I'm sure that the Academy will allow a degree of gilding the lily.

  Members of the Academy, please will you allow this nomination to stand even though the artist wishes to indulge in a modicum of  final titivation?   It might be considered the equivalent of a "Director's Cut"

Yet another of Harro's masterpieces, the Jet Belfast, aptly named 'Titan'. This entered in the 'Why the DEVIL didn't they do it for real?' class.

I would like to please ask that nobody nominate my Iowa Carrier Conversion model which is here.
http://www.whatifmodellers.com/index.php/topic,43100.0.html
I don't know what the official rules are for whifs that are built by more than one modeler, but I would tend to think my Iowa carrier model would be ineligible from being nominated since I did not do the majority of the work in building the model.
So........I am going to bow out of the 2020 Whiffies. Sorry, folks. :( :( :(

Modeling isn't just about how good the gluing or painting, etc. looks. It's also about how creative and imaginative you can be with a subject.
