iModeler May Awards
All the extra activity surrounding the 70th Anniversary of D-Day made us quite late with the announcement of May iModeler winners. Finally, here they are, selected among the 78 new contributions during the month that prompted no fewer than 1298 comments.
As per our usual procedure we are awarding the iModeler Best in Show title to the entry that wins the month’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 – May 2013
Even though we got accustomed to see modelers achieve very good results from Wingnut Wings kits, K. J. Bricknell’s 1/32 Roland D.VIb looks outstanding. The very high quality of construction and finish prompted much admiration from our members. Together with the interesting, tongue-in-cheek writeup, the presentation of Ken’s model is as good as it gets. It wins our Best in Show title in May.
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 Ramon R. Lomeli with his Monogram 1/24th scale ’53 Corvette. A big thank you for making iModeler such a great modeling hangout!
