Hey all you Gundam Model fans, are you interested in building a Gundam Model at Otakon, customizing it to your own style, and compete against other con-goers? If so, this is the contest for you. We're bringing back the Gundam Speed Building contest this year, to be held on Saturday, August 10th.
Each contestant's model will be judged on Best Build (i.e. cleanliness of model, such as, but not limited to: removal of model mold lines, leftover sprue burrs, etc.), Application of decals (decals are provided in the model kit) and Presentation of model (how well the model is built and presented to each judge) Painting is optional, as we will not be providing paint, however, if contestants want to bring their own paint and paint their models, it can't hurt your chances of winning.
Otakon will provide you the space in the Art Show area for contestants to build their models, so invite your friends to watch and cheer you on as you build your own model, for a chance to win it big!
Take a look at the rules for this contest below so you can prepare yourselves. See you at Otakon!
