iModeler December Awards

It feels like the New Year’s holiday was only a moment ago, but oh my gosh! we’re already in the middle of January. Here’s the announcement of our December winners.

There were a total of 97 articles added during the month, prompting 1613 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 – December 2014

Topping the jury’s list this month is the 1/48 Tamiya Dornier Do-335A Pfeil by Tolga Ulgur. Tolga had previously won the Best in Show award in August 2013, and thus becomes the second double- winner in iModeler’s history. Tolga’s out-of-the-box approach in this build demonstrates that great modeling can be achieved even without resorting to any extras. Inspirational!

Have a look at Tolga’s other creations at his iModeler blog.

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 the entries of the month. This time, our lucky winner is Bernard Wylie with his Diamond t 969A Wrecker. Thank you for adding these armor models to iModeler!

  1. Congratulations to the winners, you can find here beautiful modelling, every day,so it must be hard to choose.

  2. Very nice everyone. Well done on another month’s great modelling.

  3. Well done to all.
    Another hard time for the judges again.
    Fantastic builds.

  4. Congratulations to ALL the winners. As Bernd said, I don’t how a “winner” is determined from the finalists. Tolga’s work is always top notch.

  5. Cpngrats to all the winners!!!

  6. I find it hard to find a single “Winner” . Tolga’s work is impressive and he is deserving of this months award, yet there are other folks whose work and photographs are right up there. How about a blind people’s choice award? In which, people vote for a kit and the votes are not posted until tallied up after the “Best in Show” award has been chosen. That would allow the Editor and Judges their due and allow the community to participate in showing their respects. No award need be given …just the gratitude of being recognized by ones peers. Maybe some milk and cookies…just a thought.

  7. Well deserved by all. Congratulations everyone.

  8. Good jobs men ! Congratulations to the winners

  9. Congrats winners! Totally deserved, beautiful models.

  10. Congratulations to Tolga and the other prize winners, great models again on iModeler. Not sure about Stephen’s suggestion for a blind vote, maybe we could have prizes awarded to categories as well as an overall winner?
