iModeler April Awards
May 12, 2016 in Uncategorized
Tonight it’s time to reveal the results of our April retrospective – the iModeler Awards.
129 articles were added to the iModeler’s headline page during the month, prompting 62,874 total views and 1,367 fresh comments!
As usual, we are 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. The judging committee was @editor, @magnusf, @halvarvonflake, @rickard-malmborg and @aisak.
New and would-be members of iModeler please note: Every month, all articles posted among the Headlines 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 a second award to a randomly chosen article. We think that all contributions to this site deserve recognition, so this second prize is a token of appreciation to all authors and all levels of modeling experience that can be encountered here at iModeler.
iModeler Best in Show – April 2016
In comparison with the many spectacularly finished models on show last month, our choice of the Best in Show may appear a bit restrained, but we think that Roberto Colaianni’s 1/48 Fokker D.VII AOW is well worth a second look. The modeler’s care shows through every aspect of the model – the extra detailing, painted lozenge camouflage, fabric and wood textures, the base, the figures. Roberto’s entry wins our April Best in Show award.
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 a random draw among all the 129 entries of the month. The distinction goes to Craig Abrahamson for his Academy 1/48th F-4C — which also happens to be the first completed entry in the ongoing Phantom group build at iModeler!
