iModeler June Awards
With a little bit of delay due to the Summer holiday season, it is my pleasure to announce the June iModeler Award Winners.
New and would-be members of iModeler please note: Every month, all articles posted among the Headlines are included in our traditional honorary prize draw. We’re awarding the Best in Show title to the entry that in the eyes of the jury represents the month’s highlight in terms of modeling quality and presentation. In additional to this, we allot a second award to a randomly chosen article. We think that all contributions to this site deserve recognition, so this second prize is a token of appreciation to all authors and all levels of modeling experience that can be encountered here at iModeler.
June brought us a total of 70 new articles and 1038 comments.
iModeler Best in Show – June 2015
The jury’s vote goes to Brent Thomas Simpson’s (@simmo-b) 1/32 Wingnut Wings Felixtowe F2a (Late). This article marks Brent’s first appearance at iModeler, but what a debut it is – a complex model (93cm in span) finished to deceptively realistic standards and presented on a convincing display base.
Like one of the commenters said: “You’ve got to have a real commitment to this type of modelling to see it through to a good standard, and you’ve certainly achieved that here. I know many modellers [may] prefer later subject types, but the skills displayed here are first rate and deserve praise.”
But wait, there is more…
As said before, 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 DE4EVER with *** WHITE RAIN – Dale Jarrett ***. We certainly love these NASCAR races! Fortunately, there are more at @de4ever’s blog which can be viewed at http://imodeler.com/author/de4ever/
