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. With 175 new articles, 2,027 comments and 47,000 individual article reads, this was a very good February indeed.
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, @gregax, @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 this 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 2019
The year’s shortest month produced one of the longer jury sessions, with a close tie between at least four entries. In the end, Roger Fabrocini made the race with his superb Tamiya Spitfire Mk.Ia. What caught our collective eye was the subtleness and overall realism Roger achieved without going overboard on weathering.
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 of the month’s entries. This time, our lucky winner is Ian Foulkes with his 1/35 Chieftain Mk.10.
