Announcing iModeler May Awards
Once again it is time for our monthly retrospective – a look back at some of the notable March additions at iModeler. Altogether, 84 new articles were posted to the headlines during the period, prompting a healthy 989 comments.
As per our tradition, we are awarding the Best in Show title to one entry selected by the jury, also listing runner-ups as Honorable Mentions. We think that all are great modeling accomplishments that deserve recognition. The jury of the month were @editor, @aisak, @magnusf, @halvarvonflake and @rickard-malmborg.
Every month, all Headline contributions are included in our traditional honorary prize draw. We’re looking for the entries that represent the month’s highlight in terms of modeling quality and presentation. We also allot an award to a randomly chosen article to emphasize that all contributions to this site deserve recognition.
iModeler Best in Show – May 2016
The jury’s decision was unanimous: the iModeler’s monthly Best in Show award goes to Pavel Aparin’s amazing Limited series resin 1/72 Grigorovich M-5 flying boat.
While any of our runner-ups represents an award-winning potential, Pavel’s biplane represents modelling of a different kind. The complexity of the undertaking is mind-boggling, and the results are as flawless as they are convincing. Are these the limits of what can be achieved in 1/72 scale? We hope not, but we think that this comes pretty darn close! Please make sure to have a second look:
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 James Kelley and his 1/48 Eduard Bf-108 Taifun. Thanks for sharing!
