Meet our March winners
Here is a brief summary of our March activity, a month that brought no fewer than 160 new articles and 1037 comments at iModeler. It is my pleasure today to announce the winning entries in our monthly contest.
iModeler Best in Show - March 2013
Bill Koppos ( @billkoppos ) effort to Keep up with the Seitz’s with a 1/48 P-40K brings the author our Best in Show award this month.
The judges valued the combination of solid workmanship, simplistic yet brilliantly effective approach to weathering and crisp photography. There's no denying that to fare well in an online presentation, a modeler's work needs three components: build quality, painting and convincing photos. We think that Bill's entry strikes a commendable balance in these categories, resulting in one of the coolest P-40's we've admired online.
But wait, there is more! - the Random Award
We are also awarding a second 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.
Our lucky winner is Al Hoffman ( @aloisious ) with his D.520 AMS Relief Project pt. 3. A big thank you for contributing!
As a token of recognition to the excellent models that came very close to the podium, here are the jury's Honorable Mentions. (in no particular order)
