iModeler April Awards
It’s time for our look back at some of the excellent work posted on iModeler during April. 219 new articles prompted 2,371 comments and 66,300 individual article reads, making it an impressive month 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 @editor, @gregax, @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 – April 2019
Great things come in small packages – a point proven by Mike Grant and his G-5 XIII torpedo boat. Mike has to be recommended not only for his precise work in building this minuscule model, but also for his approach to painting and finish.
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 Dale Travis with his 1/48 Hasegawa Ki-44-II Hei “Tojo”.
