iModeler November Awards
Time to announce the results of our November (1st Anniversary) Contest. 117 new articles and 1230 comments were posted at iModeler during November, and the level of workmanship on display was indeed as good as it gets.
As usual, we are awarding the iModeler Best in Show title to the entry that wins this month’s prize, but also list runner-ups as Honorable Mentions. We think that all are great modeling accomplishments that deserve recognition. The judging committee was @editor, @aisak and @magnusf.
iModeler Best in Show – November 2013
Having judged at many (perhaps too many…) modeling contests throughout the years, we have come to appreciate a vast array of different modeling styles. But experience also taught us that models which strike the perfect balance between the detail, finish and weathering are actually quite rare. Models that have “it” – the aura of ultimate realism that draws us into scrutinizing the scale creation over and over again with unending interest.
We think that Jan Baranec’s ( @jan-baranec ) 1/48 Tamiya Me-262A-1a Schwalbe is such a model, and we’re happy to award it this month’s Best in Show.
Jan will be receiving our main prize this month, the Tamiya 1/32 Vought F4U-1 Corsair.
But wait, there is more! – the Random Award
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 Emeterio de la Iglesia Blanco with his Eduard 1:48 Nieuport Ni-11 Weekend edition. A big thank you for making iModeler such a great modeling hangout!
Emeterio will be receiveng a kit from Eduard Weekend Edition series.
