Awarded up to four times a year to the best model built within a given quarter.
The Model of the Month (MoM) is the oldest award on SSCoasters. It was the original award given to the best model made each month. It disappeared for many years, being replaced with items such as Top Model. The award has returned and may or may not be given within a given month. All model database submissions within a given month marked with the MoM submission designation will be reviewed for consideration. Those models with a high enough rating will be rated by an expert panel. The highest rate model will be deemed the prestigious Model of the Month.
