Level 75 Marketing Mage. Editor, admin, and occasional code monkey. Stand User in her free time. Though she does build kits when time allows, time doesn't allow often. Her favorite lines are Hasegawa's Mechatro WeGo line, Meng's World War Toons Pinky line, and weird miscellany like Platz's bonsai tree kits. In general, if it's a detailed miniature that's too small to be useful for anything other than taking up space, she'll probably love it.

    For my next custom I still need the HGBC Skull Weapon.

  7. Congrats to the winners!

  8. You see I never win anything. Not here not in the weekly prizes. Nothing. Total BS.
    I guess congrats to the winners. :/

  9. Who like me are very disappointed not to see all their favorite in the rankings? I was very surprised not to see the ones, I was sure they would have a place in the ranking! 7/15 in my forecast have won ^^
    Again congratulations to them!

  10. It’s been an awesome experience to participate in such a wonderful contest and a honor for me to be featured among the fine masterpieces here.

    Thank you very much HLJ 🙂

  11. Woohoo! Third place in the Intermediate category! It’s the first time I win anything in a modeling competition, and I’m really happy!!! I took videos of the entire process, so it’s time to edit them and share the final video on my channel 🙂

  12. Congrats to the winners, it was fun.

  13. Wow. I am humbled and thankful for my third place! Didn’t expect to win anything, seeing as this is literally my first plamo contest I’ve entered.

    A huge thanks and a big congratulations to all my fellow winners. Such great builds all!

    Hobby link tv thank you very much!!!

  15. Oh well… I lost… Ok see you next year guys.

  16. Congratulations to everybody, winners and competitors too. Very fun experience. I’m very happy to finish 4th in advanced cat., despite many problems on this kit I rushed in one week. Never give up, chase your dream and you’ll be granted ! Thank you HLJ for the competition ! #pépouze

  17. Congratulations to the winners and a big sorry to everybody, who deserved better. After looking over the announced winners and comparing, with what I saw during the competition. I have to say… this covers not the best of your entries.

  18. LOL 2nd Place. Thank you!!

  19. Yeah! Third Place – Beginners 🙂 Congrats to all the winners and to everyone who participated. Currently browsing through all the entries in the Intermediate and Advanced category and there were some amazing works there. Thanks on behalf of all beginners for the effort you put on these. As someone who just got started experimenting with hand-painting they are all a great source of inspiration.

  20. It is a bit too rude, but… yeah it feels not right, and I agree.

  21. Hrhr .. wait the sizelimit of the pics were not the big issue for me, but I couldn’t cover, all the details in just 8 pics..

  22. Congrats to all the winners and thanks to all for making this so much fun!

  23. I’m trying to delete my rude comment. It seems like editing comments is not a capability of this website, or am I going crazy?

    Oh well I guess my rude comment can’t be erased, and forgotten from my mind…….

    • No problem, I’ve just deleted the last comment for you.

  24. Is there a chance, that you can create a plattform, that shows all the entries? See, I don’t care about winning or not, but I spend far over 100 hours on my build and in the end noone even sees it. That is what drives a modeller.. to build something to be displayed. So people can look at it and say wow… the looks and the reactions of the viewers thats the only reward needed. And then they can judge for their own, who is their favorite.
    Sure you can see everything in the groups, but there is a lot of talking and scrolling. Just an overview of the entries. One pic with name that links to the little 8 pic gallery of the entered pictures.
    That would be just great.

    • That’s a great suggestion.. Love to see all the entries… I could be wrong but I thought Ryan mentioned doing that in one of the shows too.

    • It’s a good idea and we’ll take it into consideration, but please understand that there were hundreds of entries. I’m not sure if this is feasible or not, but we’ll keep that thought in mind.

    • I’m happy to say that we’ll be adding posts that feature all of the qualified entries, after all, but it will take a few days to compile. I’ll be sure to signal boost as much as possible once they’re up so everyone can see them.

      • Thank you, that will ease the pain.. 😉

  25. Congrats to all winner

  26. just one car kit on the winners 🙁
    Congrat to the winners, thought I had a chance lol

  27. Hi guys and girls, congrat to all winners, i need more exp. for the next…

  28. Anyone get any email yet regarding the prizes?

    • no, not yet.. but it said on the page winners will be contacted in the next couple of days through email. I guess they are still swarmed at the moment with the competition.

      • Okay kul, just thought they could not contact me for some odd reason.

  29. Can i publish my wip photos now?
