To all our members & readers – Happy New Year!

To all the members, supporters, writers and commenters at iModeler – best wishes of a Happy New Year.

Wishing each and every one of you a healthy and prosperous 2018, with plenty of time and inspiration to devote to our common favorite hobby.

We’d also like to thank you all for all the articles, comments and feedback shared in 2017. Each new story at the headlines had been a joy to discover, and each started and completed model a source of never-ending inspiration.

During the year, iModeler has evolved in many fundamental ways. We have started a company around it. The editorial team was joined by Johannes, then Boris. We started a bi-weekly member newsletter. Welcomed more new members than in any preceding year. Enjoyed a record flow of contributions (almost 1500 new articles during the year!), comments, plus other user-driven initiatives such as group builds. Awarded 24 kits in our monthly contest. Started a t-shirt store. Developed a format for kit reviews. Launched a sister site, Grand Retro, devoted to vintage cars. Came a long way in developing the next version of our software platform, to be revealed soon.

That’s easily the most intense year in the 5-year history of this service!

That said, it really is everyone’s effort that constantly keeps making iModeler better and better. For our part, we will humbly continue our endeavors of providing the best possible presentation stage for all kinds of modeling, and a worthy home for this fabulous community.

Can’t wait to see what 2018 will bring. Can you?
