iModeler December Awards

January 13, 2016 · in Uncategorized · · 17 · 1.3K

It is time to conclude the 2015 with a look back at our December contributions. It is my pleasure to announce the December iModeler Award winners!

December brought us a total of 140 articles and 1535 comments.

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.

iModeler Best in Show - December 2015

The jury's vote goes to Bill Koppos' "Have 3 Rolls’s now-watch out Leno...". Like the commenters pointed out, Bill has created a lot of visual interest to the model despite it being in a monochrome finish. We especially liked the feeling of everyting being "just right" with restrained means. Well done.

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 Dennis Meyers with JS-2 1:48 Tamiya. It is great to see two armor models in the prime spot today!
