iModeler January Awards
Once again it is time for our monthly retrospective – a look back at some of the notable articles posted at this site during January. This was a month, our community added another 203 new articles to iModeler, prompting an impressive 2,655 comments and 54,300 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 @aisak, @editor, @halvarvonflake, @magnusf 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 – January 2019
Some months ago, Aleksandar Sekularac started teasing us with his Work in Progress thread on a massive Russian bomber – and the final reveal is every bit as good as promised. The maintenance ladders alone are small wonders of PE work, and together with the convincing paint job Aleksandar performed, this build is just a beauty.
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 Paul E. Owens with his Tamiya AH-1 Skyraider.
