iModeler June Awards
Time to announce the winners of the iModeler July Competition. A month that brought us an excessive D-Day Anniversary celebration and a total of 111 new articles followed by 1798 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.
iModeler Best in Show – June 2014
According to our contest rules, winners of a major iModeler monthly award and title may not be awarded the same title again during the period of 6 months following their win.
Our member Jan Baranec had previously won an iModeler Best in Show, but happily cleared the prescribed “winner quarantine” just in time to present his newest creation, “THE YANKEE GUERRILLA” B-26C built from the 1:72 Hasegawa kit.
We found Jan’s Marauder the overall most impressive submission in June, which also makes him our first double Best in Show winner!
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 Mark Housley with his Hawker Typhoon 1b. A big thank you for contributing to the D-Day celebration at iModeler!
