Once again it’s time for the editorial review of the last month’s highlights. 202 new entries were posted to the Headlines in November, prompting no less than 2,684 comments and a record-breaking 122,674 individual article views.
All Headline contributions are included in our traditional monthly 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. We also allot a second award to a randomly chosen article to emphasize that all contributions to this site deserve recognition.

iModeler Best in Show – November 2017
This month’s jury award goes to Marc Barris’ scratchbuilt Pilatus PC 6 in 1/32nd scale.
Everyone who has followed Marc’s log in the Work in Progress Group has seen the sheer amount of effort and skill that went into this particular build. Working off of plans and photographs, Marc started his endeavour back in July, and his regular updates left us speechless time and again. His work included lots of styrene cutting, vacu-forming, and even handpainting the shark mouth. We feel Marc’s Pilatus pushes the boundaries of our hobby and is an inspiration for trying out new things.
But wait, there is more!
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 Charles King and his Scania Boom Haul.
