  3. I might give it a go as well I guess. My 1st comp for gunpla. still consider which kit to enter....

  4. "3. Every entry must send an email with a photo of the kit (or new parts in box"

    Does it mean all entries must be unassembled on the runners to participate?

    1. Hey there, read on to the dot points, snap fitted is ok

    2. I think you just have to take a pic of your model kit and a piece of paper saying the date(hand written) to prove its not done before the competition starts.

  5. What happened to the results?

    1. Yup.. Getting the post ready soon. I just got all the judges' results!
