iModeler October Awards

With considerable delay due to our recent Telford interlude, it’s high time to announce the winners of the iModeler Contest in October, a month that brought us 75 new articles and 1405 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 jury this month comprised of yours truly, Magnus Fridsell and Anders Isaksson.

The winners are…

iModeler Best in Show – October 2014

Although we have seen a fair share of well-done armour models at iModeler, so far none of them has been elected the monthly Best in Show. It is therefore our special pleasure to announce this month’s winner, the 1/72 scale Challenger I Main Battle Tank from Revell, built and painted by Bernd Müller.

It is a conventional wisdom that in modeling, sometimes a little goes a long way. The combination of well-targeted detailing and simple but skillfully applied weathering techniques in Bernd’s model is just right for the scale and make the finished model “pop” in a very convincing way!

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 Paul van Acker
for the Battle of France / Battle of Britain contribution – Classic Airframes 1/48 Defiant. Thanks for sharing all these inspiring builds!
