iModeler January Awards
With a bit of delay due to recent technical troubles... Here are the winners of the iModeler Contest in January, a month that brought us 80 new articles, prompting over 920 users' comments.
As per our usual procedure, we are awarding the iModeler Best in Show title to the entry that wins this month's prize, but also list runner-ups as Honorable Mentions. We think that all are great modeling accomplishments that deserve recognition. The judging committee this month was @editor and @magnusf.
The winners are...
iModeler Best in Show - January 2013
To many of us, the prospect of scratchbuilding a large-scale model of an airplane is so daunting that it wouldn't likely be attempted. Our winning entry is scratchbuilt, to a whopping 1/16 scale, a biplane, sports a great finish and is almost 1 meter in wingspan! The unbelievable planning, resourcefulness and workmanship that went into Ozkan Turker's Gotha WD-13 Seaplane wins him the January 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 an entirely random draw among all the entries of the month. This time, our lucky winner is Patrick Herrmann
with his 1/48 Hasagawa F-18C Hornet “Chippy Ho”. A big thank you for making iModeler better!
