    lol. Epic. Fail.

  • otaku posted a new activity comment 1 year ago

    Syd might have put a lot of trust in his second man or third man being the judge, since he’s not present at the office. He might have skimped over the winner list and photos, but he may not have seen all the WIPs. If he has, he would not be happy with the results. Because we LIVED the competition. Literally. We know every nook and cranny.

    Try Sinanju MG.

    Another winner in the contest in my book.

  • otaku posted a new activity comment 1 year ago

    Beork deserved a win as well. The other incredible gunpla builds didn’t get a mention. They were clean, but modded and painted a different color scheme.

    The kitbashed hybrid bike in intermediate someone did might have won if he submitted his work. Don’t think he did.

    The biggest surprise is the #1 Advanced PG build. Yes, it’s very detailed, but…[Read more]

    • I tried to stay put, but i have to agree with this rant.

      I was not expecting to be on the top 3 by any means, but seeing the winners it kind of annoyed me. When i submitted my entry i thought about putting it on intermediate, but according to the rules, they can change the category if needed…for a second i thought “well, my entry doesnt even…[Read more]

    Thank you for all the replies and support.

    It’s refreshing to see that some people are still objective, un-business-oriented and un-political. I know very well what is going on with Russia & USA. But what does that have to do with me? I’m not even Russian. lol. I don’t even know what the Russian words on the Flanker D mean.

    It’s art. Judge it…[Read more]

      Though Syd isn’t physically present, he was a preliminary judge on this. We’re sorry you feel this way, though. πŸ™

    • Hmm otaku, what makes you think it is a matter of the origin of its original?
      Hehe then the Zero would be the winner ^^

  • Who did you root for in advanced? My list:

    Java – creativity. you owe me a beer.
    Moldrunner – for trying new things, not another gunpla.
    Ronin – for mod skills.
    Enrico Asa no Hoshi – if the build was finished in time.
    eil doelz – weathered and rusted truck diorama.
    Beork – Kitbashing.
    Lambo & Minarto – amazing car building & modding skills
    One or…[Read more]

    • Beork replied 1 year ago

      I rooted for Java, because I really liked the work.
      Other than that… all the same to me ^_^

    • Duvaio replied 1 year ago

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

    • Some of em are really a supprise to me.. Where for exapmple is fluffys 3 2 1 Zero … ? Or your Jet?
      sure I am kinda disapointed and it is not up to me and I wonΒ΄t hurt someone, but what on earth makes the Mosquito topping them? Ok its brushwork, but .. don’t get it.
      And sadly the announcement was not even worth a show? I think without Sid…[Read more]

      • Thank you, Moldrunner. You made my day. An I’m going to call it my “3 2 1 Zero” from now on πŸ˜€

        • Hehe see.. I like Anna, and the other girl.. sorry, I cant remember the name.. from Toy Tengoku. I saw almost every episode of them, but If the where taken in charge for judging the entries, I feel sorry for them. Scott, Luke and Brian,should be able to judge the quality of a build. Yeah Tod und Sid for sure. Even if they might be not the pro…[Read more]

          • Anna replied 1 year ago

            Rest assured, I didn’t judge — and didn’t want to πŸ˜› Syd, Ryan, and Todd judged the contest. Luke and Brian haven’t been with us for a while now.

        • Hehe sorry,for rantingn I appreciate your comment. Java and Beork really deserve it to win. But than I see bare plastik weathered with Tamiya weathering makeup as a winner.. really…. come on..

      • Duvaio replied 1 year ago

        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…..

          • Duvaio replied 1 year ago

            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.

    • Haha this thing is driving me crazy. The more I look at that build, the more angry I become…. Is this really a big gun? You know it, when you see it? Take the framework of the canapee.. nothing is masked.. nothing is clean.. That covers not the best of their entries. It is like….,lits so many, lets come to an end. Very very sad. People put…[Read more]

      • Moldrunner I couldn’t agree with you more!
        I’m trying to hold my tongue but come-on!!!!!

    • I was rooting for Java, the amount of imagine and vision you had to have to take a pile of junk and make it into the Mecha that he did was amazing. Everyone did great and the posting activity was great from all. Can’t wait for the next one.

    • Your Flanker was very good. πŸ™‚ There was so much going on with it!

    • Duvaio replied 1 year ago

      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?

      • Duvaio replied 1 year ago

        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]

      • Anna replied 1 year ago

        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.

        • Duvaio replied 1 year ago

          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…

          • Anna replied 1 year ago

            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.

    • Thanks for including my name in your list! I really wanted to compete with you, Beork, Java…
      I’m also not satisfied with the results, there are some winners that I don’t get why they are there and some great entries that surprisingly didn’t place. I was not expecting much from my entry, after all, I made just about 70% of what I was planning (I…[Read more]

    • Java replied 1 year ago

      I haven’t been able to sign in on here for a few days that’s why I’m a bit late but I do think that Moldrunner should have won a place and also kaminoan.

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

    Auto paints can be on styrene. It must be primed first.

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

    Super clean build.

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

    The fun parts were the hard work, as ironic as it sounds.

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

    Repeat that pattern all over the body. For ideas, google “winter camo aircraft”

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

    Maybe next time try this: thin black, more medium gray, and mostly white camo. From head to toe, black, gray, white patterns like water waves or straight lines or digits (blocks). Hard edges are ok.

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

    Just 50? Not 51? lol.

    It’s ver ka? You’ve done it justice. I’d change the metallic red to blue.

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

    Plum ain’t exactly Bandai. BTW, a freaking creative color scheme. You could swap the color scheme out for another and have a totally different look.

    • If you are refering to the joints, you can have this with Bandaikits too. Especially, if they have to hold heavy shields and weapons. Also that it is no Bandaikit it is of a great quality. The mold is top and there is nothing falling appart, when assembled. Even after several coats of paint I just had to sand 2 parts to make em fit again. Sure,…[Read more]

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

    More like zebra camo. It’s very creative.

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

    I meaned learning is incentive enough. Prizes are a bonus.

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

    Good to hear I’m not the only one feeling that way. In this competition, I learned a few things.

    • It’s reassuring ! ^^ Yes this competition was very instructive and loaded with inspiration!

      Thank youu Otaku for your answer ! πŸ™‚

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

    Great work.

    We’re just anxious about who wins. I’m not holding my breath. I have a number of winners in mind. Given gunpla is the bread and butter, I’m guessing the gunpla entries will snag half of the awards. That’d be no surprise.

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

    No, not all of your works, but the one you submitted to HLJ for 2017 competition. We’d like to know.

  • Thank you for covering my favorite part of the show. Wish I could afford all of them.
