iModeler August Awards
September 8, 2013 in Uncategorized
Disruptions in our editorial work continued last week as yours truly went through a thoroughly frustrating network and computer upgrade of my home office. Apologies to everyone for a delay — here are the results of our August contest, carefully selected among the 149 new articles added during the month.
As usual, we’re awarding the iModeler Best in Show title to the entry that wins the jury’s prize, but also list runner-ups as Honorable Mentions. We think that all are great modeling accomplishments that deserve recognition.
iModeler Best in Show – August 2013
Tolga Ulgur used to spoil us with many beautifully executed and photographed models – over 40 of them so far. This time, we fell completely in love with his newest creation, a superb rendition of the North American P-51D Mustang, the famous “LOU IV”. Without a doubt, this model is a fantastic modeling achievement that would turn heads at any contest. Here at iModeler it brings Tolga the August 2013 Best in Show award!
Tolga’s other creations can be admired at his iModeler blog here.
But wait, there is more!
We are also awarding a prize as a token of appreciation to all our contributors. This is selected through an entirely random draw among all the entries of the month. This time, our lucky winner is Joe Caputo with his 1/48 Lindberg JN-4D Jenny. Thank you for making iModeler such a great modeling hangout!
