Damn!  :banghead:

Why didn't I think of nominating it? It's REALLY good!  :thumbsup:

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

I did think about it, but by the time I'd thunk, someone else got in before me!

Thank you very much, Chris! :bow:


More than the build quality deserves, really. (The Idea, on the other hand, definitely does - Thanks, taidantomcat! :thumbsup:)


I was just responding to Cobra's comment about the B-27A needing to be awarded a Whiffie, which it can't do if it isn't nominated. ;)

Oh, thanks a lot! And, yes, technically it is a diorama (it has a scenic idea, a Biker Scout sniper, dismounted from his Speeder Bike and watching out for the target), even though the base is rather simple and has been "abused" for the beauty shots from various angles and with the Scout riding the bike in order to demonstrate how both elements actually go together).
Taking pics was not easy, due to the diorama's sheer size and dimensions - this shot here shows the whole arrangement "as intended" (including the extra rifle and the scratched binoculars) best, even though perttime's riding shot shows the core models much better:

It often seems some great entries from our Group Builds seem under represented for Whiffie nominations, so here we go from the recent "Out of retirement G.B."
