Announcing January iModeler Awards
Let’s have a look back at some of the notable iModeler contributions in January. The month brought 118 new headline articles and 1836 comments – a very good month with many fantastic models on display.
As per our tradition, we are awarding the Best in Show title to the entry that wins the jury’s award, but also list 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. Join iModeler and post an article to take part in our next monthly roundup.
iModeler Best in Show – January 2017
After a long deliberation and recognizing the many top-notch contributions this month, the jury’s vote goes to Martin Dytrych’s F-4B Phantom “Sundowners” 1:48 (Eduard / Academy). This model is a spectacular blend of great finish and attention to detail; a real eye-candy of a model that invites to be studied over and over again.
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 Dmitry Stropalov and his RQ-7B Shadow UAV (AttackSquardon 1/72).
