iModeler March Awards

April 16, 2018 · in News · · 21 Comments

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

March was an excellent month, with 169 new entries adorning the headlines of iModeler during the period, prompting an impressive 2,800 comments and a whopping 42,985 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 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 - March 2018

The jury's Best in Show award for this month goes to John Soh's Tamiya 1/350 IJN Yamato. As has been mentioned in the comments, "we are being spoilt with ship models these days..." - and nothing exemplifies the quality of ship building on iModeler better than John's Yamato. The effective weathering, paired with great photography, create a stunning impression of this huge battleship.

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 S. Cubas and his Tamiya 1/48 F4U-1 Corsair.
