    Yeah gotta agree with that, the Bradley is a superb build. And the dioramas, well I really enjoyed seeing a French tank in there, it’s so rarely to see them being appreciated, even more a diorama of those years, found it interesting, but I see where you are going.

    That’s great, looking forward for it. Thanks.

    I understand how hard it must be to judge, after all we have both gundams, land vehicles, planes and ships all competing with each other, and most of the winners rightfully deserve their place, man there are some amazing kits in there, did you see that metal gear? an what to say about Beork’s uh (is it a gundam? looks amazing tho), but yeah some…[Read more]

    My main complain is that both the category rules and the of judging criteria seems to be all over the place, and the lack of video really does not help on that behave. Are they looking for a clean build, an interesting one, a complex one? Does scale matters? Does realism matters or just artistic sense?

      We’ll have a video a bit later. Because of the volume of entries, judging alone took longer than expected. We focused on judging first to have the results to everyone by Wednesday. Unfortunately, if we had added the video at the same time, results would have been further delayed.

        That’s great, looking forward for it. Thanks.

      • I think everybody would gladly understand a further delay. Looking st the circumstances. And patience is one of a modellers strength. I really thought Syd would leave after the contest. Never expected him to leaving everything behind and this task to his unprepared colleagues…

          We had many modellers eager to post their photos online, and didn’t want to keep them waiting any longer, but we will have a video — hopefully within a few days. Though Syd isn’t physically present, he was a preliminary judge for this competition, with Ryan and Todd’s help.

    I actually really like the Mosquito, was expecting It to score as the best of intermediate instead of a Bradley. It’s a nice looking, elegant plane and the kit is nice to look at. I am quite surprised it got bumped to advanced tho, mostly due to the category guides.

    • The Breadly is amazing. All detailed and a nice finish. It is a worthy winner. Compare it to the finish of the tank dio at the advanced category…..

    I was sincerely expecting to see your Flanker among the top winners.

  • Congrats to the winners, it was fun.

    Excellent! I’ll take all that into account. Thanks man.
    It’s pretty cool she is modeled around the JGSDF’s MBT, painted on JGSDF camo and wields their issued assault rifle, great work!

    Thanks! Really happy with the way it turned out.
    Being a 1/72 kit it is rather small (hull is about 95mm long) and I wouldn’t be able to put the level of detail on it for me to be confident for the advanced category. I would definitely consider trying doing diorama, or maybe a 1/35 kit next time, although I have never done one.

    It definitely looks great. Noted all, it would be my first articulated kit so all the tips help, I usually build military vehicles, but her smugness was too much to ignore and decided to give it a try, also got a pair of little armory AKs, they are compatible right?
    Any recommendations for using Mr. Topcoat, I am getting the same one ASAP, the…[Read more]

    Looks great! Really clean build!
    Did you paint the skin parts or only top-coated them? Waiting for my Innocentia to arrive but I am really afraid to painting skin and yours looks perfect.

    Hope we get to see that Su-33 finished, that setup looks really interesting.

  • Duvaio posted a new activity comment 1 year, 1 month ago

    Looks amazing.
    It’s always incredible to see the amount of payload the SU can carry.

  • Duvaio posted a new activity comment 1 year, 2 months ago

    Gonna give it a try on my next build, thanks!

  • Duvaio posted a new activity comment 1 year, 2 months ago

    They do send you a confirmation mail, in my case it took a few hours.
    Great looking model btw

  • Duvaio posted a new activity comment 1 year, 2 months ago

    Really interesting color scheme! Looking forward for it.

  • Duvaio posted a new activity comment 1 year, 2 months ago

    I love it. It’s original, interesting and IMO looks great.
    How did you archive that look? Drybrush?

  • Duvaio posted a new activity comment 1 year, 2 months ago
