iModeler May Awards
Once again it is time to announce the results of our monthly new content roundup – the iModeler Awards. 99 new articles were added to the iModeler’s headline page during May, prompting just over 1,000 comments. The level of workmanship on display was as impressive as ever.
As usual, 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 was @editor, @aisak and @magnusf.
iModeler Best in Show – May 2015
The Focke-Wulf Fw 190 is one of the evergreen favorites of modeling and it can be easily said that over the years we have seen a multitude of models of this aircraft built to high standards. In fact, there are now no fewer than 70 of them to be found at iModeler. Taking all this into consideration it brings me all the more pleasure to announce an extraordinaly attractive and well-executed Fw 109D-9 model we have seen in a log time! The seven months of tedious work spent by Milan D (@manson) on superdetailing the Hasegawa Fw 190D-9 in 1/32 produced a stunning replica, complete with opened-up panels and many internal fittings.
This model is our choice for the May 2015 Best in Show, and so the iModeler award goes to Serbia!
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 Matija Lisec (@lisec) and his ISU-152 1/35 Zvezda. A big thank you for making iModeler such a great modeling hangout!
