Announcing our January winners

February 2, 2013 · in Uncategorized · · 10 · 2.8K

It is my pleasure today to announce the winning entries among the 123 articles submitted to iModeler during January.

iModeler Best in Show - January 2013

The judges were unanimous: Honza Petr's ( @honzapetr ) Aero L-29 Delfin shines with one of the most exquisite natural metal finishes we have ever seen - and that's only one of the many virtues of this model.

There is more!

Besides the Best in Show award, we have also funded a second prize as a token of appreciation to all our contributors.
The winner has been selected through a random draw, the only criterion being that the article should have received
6 or more comments from other users.

The lucky winner is this 1/48 Tamiya P-47D-2 Captured Thunderbolt by Tolga Ulgur.

As a token of recognition to those excellent models that came very close to the podium, here are the jury's Honorable Mentions. (in no particular order)
