October 9, 2013 · in Uncategorized · · 12 · 1.3K

Without further delay, here are the results of iModeler Septeber contest, selected among the 118 new articles added during the month.

As usual, we're awarding the iModeler Best in Show title to the entry that wins our prize, but also list runner-ups as Honorable Mentions. We think that all are great modeling accomplishments that deserve recognition.

iModeler Best in Show - September 2013

They say that if God gives talent, passion and hard work transform it into genius. The winner of this month's Best in Show has been giving us all the opportunity to follow his talent develop during the year, entertaining us with a constant stream of new models in 1/48 and 1/32 scale. It is therefore my special pleasure today to confirm that passion and hard work indeed may lead all the way to the top ranks here at iModeler. The winner of this month's Best in Show is Matt Mears from Australia with his 1/48 Hobby Boss F-111C from RAAF 1 Sqn!

Matt's other creations can be admired here.

But wait, there is more...

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 Simon Whitney with his RAF Mustang III 1/48 Tamiya. Thank you for making iModeler a great modeling hangout.

  1. Congratulations everybody.

  2. First a congratulations to all of you.

    You are indeed worthy of this recognition. You are, at your young age, a Master builder and you never cease to amaze at the brilliant work you continue to do. To have the talent you have at your age is not only remarkable but so very impressive. I for one am honored to be associated with you and to see your work from afar. I have had the opportunity to meet a lot of talented builders over the years Stan Stapes, George Lee, Arlo Schroder, just to name a few. Your name is definitely on that list.
    Again, a well deserved CONGRATULATIONS.

  3. Well done Matt, you've got talent mate. Thoroughly deserved! And congratulations to the others, some stunning craftsmanship on display.

  4. Congratulatons all ! Well deserved, and thanks to you all, for givng us some great models for our viewing pleasure, and inspiration. Matt, you in particular, should be singled out, for raising the bar for the rest of us. Thanks for reminding us of what could be, or in some cases, has been. Top quality and effort all the way.
