iModeler October Awards
It's high time again to award our last month's contributions. These were selected by the editorial jury among 101 new articles added during the month, prompting a total of 958 readers' comments.
As usual, we're 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.
iModeler Best in Show - October 2013
Topping the jury's list this month is Seamus Boughe's ( @seamus1 ) refined 1/32 model of a Battle of Britain Spitfire. Among the very tough competition this month, the combination of artful presentation, care for detail and the bold weathering of Seamus' model result in an object of extraordinary presence that would also make a desirable display piece.
Achtung, Spitfire! wins our Best in Show award for October.
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 @jetmex Jaime Carreon with A picture, a story, and a really old model airplane
Thank you for sharing all those personal modeling stories at iModeler.
