Delivering the iModeler Award

January 30, 2017 · in Aviation · · 32 · 1.3K

During the four years of the iModeler monthly contest, we have happily managed to deliver around 100 kit prizes to modelers in all corners of the globe. When Stellan Schroeder Englund was elected the winner of our December award, I realized that this was the first time that the winner comes from the same town that I do. The opportunity to deliver the prize personally was not to be missed!

It ended up with an utterly pleasurable evening chat in our winner's kitchen, over the Guntruck model (which turned out to be just as inspiring in reality as it was in the pictures) and Stellan's chosen prize kit, the Pilot Replicas' 1/48 Saab J29F Tunnan.

Looking forward to see more Stellan's creations soon!

  1. Congratulations, Stellan...on your prize AND your surprise visitor. Martin could've come to Florida a few months back, but I guess that would've been a bit far for a personal delivery. 🙁
    Still...tell him he's welcome anytime! 🙂

  2. Nice kit there Stellan, and a personal touch by the big cheese himself.
    So, did you have a warming brew or three?

  3. Great choice! I built that kit last year and really enjoyed it.

  4. Congrats ! Now that's service Martin !
    Well deserved award indeed, and a great choice to boot.

  5. How cool is this? To have the prize dropped of in person! Stellan, I have this kit and although I haven't started it, it's probably safe to say my NeoMega Tunnan may never get finished! I still want their J-21 and hope they also will offer the 21R. Congratulations and have fun!

    • Very cool indeed! Guess there are many models never being built after the ultimate one is released. Possibly new decals will be released by Moose republic by the time i get around to build it or I just go for the one with orange dayglo panels.Thank you!

  6. Congratulations! Good luck in modeling!

  7. That's really great, and congratulations on a fun what if.
