iModeler February Awards
Once again it’s time to announce the results of our monthly competition. 78 new articles and 1191 comments were posted at iModeler during February; another good month with exciting new articles posted daily!
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 – February 2015
In the final round of our judging it all came down to two models, each in a beautiful red livery and both representing a pinnacle of a modelers’ art. This was not the first time when the popular vote (your comments and likes) helped us to elect this month’s winner – if only by the narrowest of margins!
Just like the readers did, we think that Kevin Payne’s 1/72 vac-formed Vickers Vanguard is a fabulous modeling achievement and a worthy winner of this month’s award.
Kevin will be receiving our main kit prize this month.
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 Paul Mahoney and his Fine Molds 1/48 Ki-10 “Perry”. A big thank you for making iModeler such a great modeling hangout!
