2012 Back To Basic Group Build

Objective

This first collaborative group build organized by LYN & Pla-zone is mainly aim for modelers who doesn’t have that much time for modeling and to those who simply prefer to build models as per Bandai’s original design. The time & effort being put into completing such built generally gain misconception that it’s too fast & effortless for modelers. Therefore one of the reason of the GB is to show the world what we can do with snapfits & OOB, it’s time to earn back some respect!
Of course, that’s secondary. The bottom line is, just to have our own group build and have tons of fun!!!!

Snapfit Category

– Aftermarket & kit bash is allowed: If u want, water slide decal, metal thruster, movable manupulators are allowed. For kit-bashing, u can do whatever u want, but bare in mind, since u cannot color the kit in full, make sure the color of the kit u r bashing does match with each other.
-Top Coat is allowed.
-Photography for judging: 1 front, 1 back, 1 left, 1 right are the minimum requirement. Action pose n close up is encourage. Simply, besides the 4 standard photos, post as many interesting photos as possible to impress the judges for extra point.
– One Title photography is allowed: This means the photo can be edited with background photos, effects, custom wordings for title etc might help u get an extra point or so. Eg, making it looks like an OVA DVD movie poster, manga cover etc. (Extra mecha can be used but will only be considered as part of the background)
– Judging:
40% fundamental ground work (nip mark, cleanliness, panel line, decal/stickers etc)
40% Presentation: action pose, angle, title photo etc. Tips: do anything that u think will impress the judge. Eg, u can even have a brief story, n make it into a movie poster style, with very dynamic action pose.

OOB Category
– The kit has to be fully covered with paint.
– Waterslide decal is allowed. Besides that, NO after market nor kit bashing is allowed. No metal thruster, koto parts. As its name, we want it to be original Bandai’s design.
– Putty can be used for covering seamlines n any imperfection only. U cannot use putty to re-create something new. Eg, DON’T think it’s a grey area where u use putty to create an extra spike on a zaku shoulder.
-Parts can be cut or modified solely for the purpose of easy painting. Again as long as it doesn’t change the original shape. Eg, cut certain parts so u can cover seamlines n paint the inner frame separately.
