iModeler August Awards
September 14, 2015 in Uncategorized
Dear all, it’s high time for our monthly iModeler retrospective, this time looking back at our August entries.
122 articles were added to the headlines by 54 authors, prompting no fewer than 1842 comments. That’s equivalent to 16 comments per average article, a number that confirms iModeler’s position as the web’s most generously commented model presentation space!
Every month, all Headline contributions are included in our traditional honorary prize draw. We’re awarding the Best in Show title to the entry that in the eyes of the jury represents the month’s highlight in terms of modeling quality and presentation. In additional to this, we allot another award to a randomly chosen article to emphasize that all contributions to this site deserve recognition.
Please don’t hesitate to join iModeler and take part in our next monthly roundup!.
iModeler Best in Show – August 2015
Regular readers of iModeler should be familar with the work of Jack Mugan @camaro1. Always interested in finding new techniques to try (and discover yet another application for his favorite stripes of decal rivets), Jack has shown us many models with distinct “personality”. We simply could not resist his Challenger I, Mickey Thompson’s Bonneville beauty – an incredible double-build of a record-breaking car, with one of the models featuring a transparent body shell and full interior detail. As Jack said: “things ran amuck as they sometimes do, and in the end I found myself with two cars instead of one.” With this increased challenge, the result paid off – it’s a remarkable modeling achievement on a subject which is refreshingly off the beaten track. A big “like”!
But wait, there is more…
As said before, 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 Gary Brantley @garybrantley with Tamiya Douglas F4D-1 Skyray. Don’t we just love those 1950’s jets… thanks for sharing them at iModeler!
