iModeler February Awards

Once again it is time for our monthly retrospective – a look back at some of the notable articles posted at this site during February.

February was an excellent month, with 150 new entries adorning the headlines of iModeler during the period, prompting an impressive 2,500 comments and 35,300 individual article reads.

According to our long-standing tradition we are giving away a pair of awards as a token of appreciation to our contributors. The jury panel this month were @editor, @halvarvonflake, @magnusf, @aisak, @rickard-malmborg and @raikisan.

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 – February 2018

The jury’s Best in Show award goes to Gábor Szabó’s scratchbuilt 1/48 GTC-85 Air Transportable APU. Now this is something different – small, obscure, and very creative. And it is not every day that a scratch project is accompanied by such insightful writing and reference pictures which basically let you recreate Gábor’s whole process.

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 Robert Royes and his Supermodel Macchi C.202 Folgore.
