G-SHOT 2011 PHOTO CONTEST - BEST STRAIGHT BUILD CATEGORY [WINNER: HENRY FENG]

G-SHOT 2011 PHOTO CONTEST ENTRIES - BEST STRAIGHT BUILD WINNER: HENRY FENG

WINNING G-SHOT IMAGE
EXTRA IMAGES
A FEW WORDS FROM SOME OF OUR JUDGES ABOUT THE WINNING PHOTO (Info about our judges: HERE)
Kenny Lim (Toymaker)
First the Sandrock comes with lots of markings and he did a pretty good job, neat and tidy. I did not spot any nubs or blemishes either. Overall, a good "straight build" kit. But I think he miss a few panel lines.
Syd Sked (Gaijin Gunpla)
A nice photo showing not only the proportions of the kit but the work that has been done with it. Care has been taken with this kit and its markings and it shows. Not afraid to show us the kit in its entirety which is a must when it comes to a straight build.
A very clean and precise straight build by Henry that answers all of the elements of the competition. Bearing in mind that this competition is firstly about photography, the first thing I look for is a nice shot and that will be the first point of elimination in my judging for those who are interested. The shot is well positioned, well lit, in focus, clear, has a complimentary background colour, and I can see everything I need to see. Clever positioning of your kit to enhance the things you have done well and disguise any mistakes is a good idea.
As for the Gunpla: I mentioned in the judging panel that the kit you choose to enter is your own choice. Ver. Ka kits typically have loads of markings and if you apply them well this is going to be an advantage as it strongly enhances the look of your straight build. Henry has done so in this instance very well. The markings have been applied cleanly and symmetrically and add much to the aesthetic appeal of the final product. I like subtlety in panel lining and whilst I feel this is underdone I would rather see a few left out than an untidy job. Very few visible gate marks and a good static pose round it out. A shining example of a straight build if ever there was one.

  1. WOW! There's no doubt the first image of Astray Red frame is AWESOME! ^^

    ReplyDelete
  2. i thought panel line / stickers (included with kit) are allowed on straight build, but no painting.. isn't the Red Frame (1st entry above and the other one) has its hands painted white? or is it ok then?

    ReplyDelete
  3. the red frame has paint in the fingers they come moulded in red tisk tisk (the one at the start

    ReplyDelete
  4. wat about other category???

    ReplyDelete
  5. its true. the astray kai up there is partially painted!

    ReplyDelete
  6. Good catch guys, that one got by us. It will be disqualified, and will be notifying the owner of that kit.

    We will take that one off this post.

    ReplyDelete
  7. thanks. it was just a very minor paintjob but its still not really in the spirit of this category.

    ReplyDelete
  8. The Destiny should also be disqualified. Look closely at the boomerang vents, the handle of the Arondite sword, the hydrolic pipes in the ankles and the grey parts of the wings, they're all painted. Compared it in dalong.net's unpainted review.

    ReplyDelete
  9. I'm as confused as the rest of you :P
    I thought painting wasn't allowed at all :o

    ReplyDelete
  10. Can you do panel lining and it still be able to win?

    ReplyDelete
  11. There is no need to be confused, as we are enforcing the no paint allow rule (except for panel linking w/ gundam marker). And we do apologize that some of the non-qualify kits made it pass our initial review. But they will be taken out of the competition.

    ReplyDelete
  12. How do submit photos?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Submit to gshot.submit@gmail.com
    Be sure to read the rules first from our previous post: http://gundamguy.blogspot.com/2011/10/g-shot-2011-starting-this-november.html
    Thx

    ReplyDelete
  14. It's great to to see the community being ever-vigilant about details. Something tells me they're make for harsher judges though :P

    ReplyDelete
  15. i think the pg astray's finger come in partially white

    ReplyDelete
  16. yes, it's PG astray and part fingers are pre-painted red and white

    ReplyDelete
  17. Hmm... where is my entry?

    ReplyDelete
  18. yeah don't disqualify that! that's a PG, not MG guys. fingers on that are partially painted white

    ReplyDelete
  19. is the red line on crossbone face a paint ?
    or a decal ? or gundam marker ?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Thought we're being too busy to assess the detail of the participant's work based on the rules, and we finally lose the spirit of the "straight build" itself. Just my 2 cents, actually lining using gundam marker, pencil, or brush-washing is essentially the same activity (basically the gundam marker contains the enamel ink). As long as there is no paint used to color the parts and no additional decals, IMO it still can be considered as a straight built. But yeah rule is the rule, and the GG Team should've worked real hard to engage this contest, thank you GG ^^

    ReplyDelete
  21. Uuh...guys? That Astray Red Frame is a PERFECT GRADE and the finger is ALREADY come in red-white color scheme, therefore there's no need to disqualified the participant! Please CHECK AGAIN before you accused someone.

    ReplyDelete
  22. here's a photo from Dalong's review to further convince you all: http://dalong.net/review/pg/p11/p/p11_01.jpg

    please GG don't make a mistake just because something like this

    ReplyDelete
  23. Najwan's entry awsome!

    ReplyDelete
  24. yeap, the crossbone looks good as a straight build!

    yea, that astray is a PG guys, the proportion and gerbera straight design is different PG is bulkier than the MG, and it has a different backpack also. Dont disqualify it!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Hey gg, are sharpies allowed in the straight build category?

    ReplyDelete
  26. why are there bases on the OOB category ain't that against the rules?

    ReplyDelete
  27. are there still some photos in this category that arent uploaded onto this page yet?

    ReplyDelete
  28. i should enter this one..

    ReplyDelete
  29. Because it's confusing the heck out of people...

    There were *2* Astrays.

    The Astray Kai with the painted fingers was already removed.

    The current Astray PG is a different entry, and is not disqualified.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I hope Team GG will soon upload the new entries... =D

    ReplyDelete
  31. what if a person wins in multiple categories....?

    ReplyDelete
  32. Dear GG, i've been waiting for the last update, just really need to know if my submission was passed or not? When will you update the entries submitted? Hope it will be soon, pls ^^

    ReplyDelete
  33. Wheres the hg titus i submitted?

    ReplyDelete
  34. where is my hg GNX III? did it pass?

    ReplyDelete
  35. I think the Harute one is not just a "straightbuild", is it?

    ReplyDelete
  36. to everyone who doesnt see their entry: ITS NOT THERE YET. the only time you should be VERY SURE that it does not pass is when you get an email from GG

    ReplyDelete
  37. GG,i know you've been very, but could you please at least give us the name list of passed submissions? Just to make sure to all of us participants here if we did pass or not. And in case we didn't pass, maybe we still have a chance to send another submission... there's no much time left.

    ReplyDelete
  38. the crossbone's scars are painted in..i believe so cause there are no red finetip gundam marker..and i'm not really sure but it looks like it's flat coated..i dunno..team G.G should investigate this i think.just to be fair with everyone..:)

    ReplyDelete
  39. Hello Mr.GG, where is my gm cannon 2?
    i already send it yesterday...

    ReplyDelete
  40. think that hundred of submission from all over the world are now being checked by GG Team, so ... please be patient, folks :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. Wow, this year's competition got a more strict rules hahaha. :D Many great entries here.

    ReplyDelete
  42. there is a red real touch gundam marker....

    ReplyDelete
  43. Axel Willyandre RaharjaDecember 29, 2011 at 9:39 PM

    Am I not Qualified???

    ReplyDelete
  44. Do not just because of somethings unessential, then we disqualify the work that is actually really good and deserved to win.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Dat Cross Bone TT^TT it's a beautiful kit

    ReplyDelete
  46. THE WING GUNDAM MG CHEST ORB IS AND THE SENSOR ON ITS SHIELD IS PAINTED....

    ReplyDelete
  47. Agreed with anon on wing gundam.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Hey guys I want to ask you a question especially those who had submitted: are you permitted to do different post for photo extra 1 and 2? thank you very much for the answer :)

    ReplyDelete
  49. different post?you mean different picture?just put extra picture from different angle or something like that would do imo.

    ReplyDelete
  50. ah sorry my bad, I mean different pose >.<; sorry I'm such in a rush so I didnt check it again >.<

    ReplyDelete
  51. yea,you can i think.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  55. Hi Guys, Sorry for not being able to catch up with all the comments posted here. We had recieve a lot of entries this past week, so is going to take time to process them all, and we will be continously doing that today straight into the new year. Please be a bit more patient with us.

    Thanks guys and Happy New Year.

    ReplyDelete
  56. the RG aile strike looks awesome..feels like it's a winner..:D though it would have been better if it was a full body shot..kinda miss the point of the whole "straight build" theme, which, for me, the viewers should see the "whole" gundam so that they could see really how well the kit is built..nevertheless, great picture..:D some entries seem to have painted parts/details in them, the crossbone ang wing gundam.though i'm not sure on this..

    ReplyDelete
  57. The Unicorn Gundam with the teal colored V-Fin is painted....

    ReplyDelete
  58. it is not painted that's the HG unicorn destroy mode ANA edition. Witch you could only buy it in ANA

    ReplyDelete
  59. i have sent my gundam for this categories and not yet seen it in the list.. am i being rejected?

    ReplyDelete
  60. Hi,i sent my entry which is hg titus but was disqualified as the file was too big so i sent another which is rg freedom gundam but i do not see it here am i disqualified?

    ReplyDelete
  61. Chessanova entry is not qualified because he doesnt use the out of the box decals

    ReplyDelete
  62. i dont see my entry in this update,
    did i don't make it??
    am i disqualified??

    ReplyDelete
  63. Kevin, if you haven't received any email from them, then your entry is pretty much still part of the contest :)

    ReplyDelete
  64. Doesn't that astray blue frame at the top have painted fingers?

    ReplyDelete
  65. Notice that decal on Jan Carlo Villanueva's MG Infinite Justice Gundam is not the original decal or sticker from the kit (look at the left skirt).

    ReplyDelete
  66. Mine isn't here yet :(, meanwhile there's one participant come up twice (Rheza Hardrocker and M. Rheza Sudiar apparently are the same person, or they submitted the same image :)).

    ReplyDelete
  67. What kind of beam saber does that Extreme Gundam have? The one in the kit is a plain blue piece, handle and all, and that looks like a clear blue one with a white handle.

    ReplyDelete
  68. @Anon: that kit has a lot of extra dry transfer decals..it's up to you where to put it..G.G. didn't mention anything about placing them exactly where the manual tells you to..as long as the decals are included in the kit, everything inside the kit qualifies.:)

    ReplyDelete
  69. is the deadline for the submission of entries extended?

  70. the blue frame's fingers are painted..

    the first seven sword from the top, it has lines painted all over it..replacement for decals maybe?

    i think the gray parts/details on the Virtue up there is painted..like on the legs, shoulders..

    ReplyDelete
  71. @Anon: the decals on my Infinite Justice is from the decal sheet that comes with the kit..there are spare decals, a lot actually..i just placed them to my liking..i didn't follow exactly where the manual tells me to put the decals on.it's not against the rules as long as the decals used comes with the kit.:)

    ReplyDelete
  72. The MG Sandrock EW has the gripping area of the Heat Shotel painted in Gold and Yellow. So is part of the shield..

    ReplyDelete
  73. I don't think they're trying very hard. About 25% or more of these kits have paint applied. Heck, a few have parts from other kits.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Hey, why my entry showed up twice??? was my first email sent to you GG? because when I sent it, it was failed. the connection was cut out that time.

    ReplyDelete
  75. oh boy, let's see here...
    the blue frame's fingers are painted, Michael Angelo Manlapaz's sandrock has paint on the shortels, Ng Tech Koon's SF has gold lining on the dragoons, Chessanova's 00 has decals that never came with it, Thomas Zhuang's Wing Gundam has clear green paint on the sensor and shield, and Najwan Bin Abdul Rahman's crossbone gundam has painted red lines on the sides of the head. Might be more, but I'm not gonna bother looking further

    ReplyDelete
  76. Looks like a lot of entries for this category. GG and his boys probably don't have the time to really look into the fine details. Well anyways, I personally think that a little paint here and there wouldn't really make a lot of difference. And if we as critical as the anonymous above, then that really takes the fun out of the everything. Just my 2 cents. Hope to me my entries get posted soon.

    ReplyDelete
  77. G.G. stated in one of his comment under competition post

    "M: Only panel lining is allowed for straight build category. You may use any marker color for panel lines."

    hope that will clear the argument about colored panel lining.

    ReplyDelete
  78. I never noticed the comment about colored panel lines, so i apologize. However, team GG did state that they want to enforce the no paint rule

    ReplyDelete
  79. to the Annonymous ^^ thats the reason why they post it here to let us help them check we are their "eyes"

    ReplyDelete
  80. i can't seem to find my entry which was posted here before. was it disqualified? if so why? i followed all the rules :(

    entry was an HG 00 Raiser. anyway, GL to all participants :)

    ReplyDelete
  81. Damn, lots of really good entries this time! I especially like Rizky's Strike, Chen's Exia, and Hezri's RX. Sayson's AGE is a really good one, too. The really shows off the dynamic nature of the kit—really makes me want to pick one up! Best of luck to all the competitors! You all deserve to win!

    ReplyDelete
  82. @Crimson Comet: Under what email / name did you submit your entry with? I hope we didn't accidentally removed your image.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Marty Ren 00 Quanta Entry NOT QUALIFIED the Full Saber is not included in the box.

    ReplyDelete
  84. cool extreme gundam Dustin Lyne the beam saber is nicely painted

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  86. YES!!!I SEE MINE wat a mess my table is....

    ReplyDelete
  87. Every Gunpla is best straight built out of the box. Congratulations for the winners of this segment.

    ReplyDelete
  88. I Agree..!! the extreme's beam saber painted with clear blue and the handle painted white..
    check it out dalong.net..

    ReplyDelete
  89. I'm curious why there are 2 "Calvin Chen" :D

    ReplyDelete
  90. Marty Ren's Quanta use optional part GN full saber & green ring(i dont know whats the name)??
    is that allowed??
    CMIIW..

    ReplyDelete
  91. some of the entries seems to have a flat top coat.. like Wibi Gunawan's.. correct me if i'm wrong

    ReplyDelete
  92. hg zeta painted white on the upper backpack.
    only mg zeta have white on upper backpack.

    ReplyDelete
  93. yey! i saw my entry ^^

    ReplyDelete
  94. no the extreme gundam comes with a stuuupid toothpick and he painted the beam :/

    ReplyDelete
  95. So many RG Aile Strike.. (*~*)

    ReplyDelete
  96. @anonymous 4 posts above

    What are you talking about? That's not hg zeta...

    You can tell it's an mg just by looking at the jointed hands.

    ReplyDelete
  97. @anon : My Hazel wasn't top coated yet, believe me. That's probably because i used a little light on when taking the picture. But actually it took me a lot of time to sand almost the whole parts of this kit, to make it less shiny. I also gave my best efforts to remove any seam lines and trim the sticker decals. I think I'm quite happy with the outcome :). Rgrds.

    -wibi_gunawan

    ReplyDelete
  98. @kevin goh. Hah, So many Calvin Chen in the world, not suprised, i have a fren called Kelvin Chen and a Calvin Tan. I think they are different people as the quality of their pictures are so different, The Trans-Am Exia is 0.0 whereas the 00 is meh~

    ReplyDelete
  99. Yep, Calvin's Exia has a great shot there, the dynamic feel, the focus & lighting.

    ReplyDelete
  100. Why does everyone have to keep being so critical and pointing out all the little flaws and things that wouldn't qualify's someone model for the contest? If you're a submitter yourself, then finding flaws in other people's submissions just so you have a better chance at winning is downright dishonerable.

    It's up to team G.G. in the end, but I personally don't think a little dab of paint here and there will really make a difference. Or if they used some different decal or touched it up somewhat. It's not like it's a completely different model or it's been customized to become a completely original, stunning kit.

    ReplyDelete
  101. This year's contest doesn't really bring "Straight Build" much justice...
    There's no category for model kits that have the stock color and look "straight built" but have been detailed up with paint. Like the older SEED and Wing HG kits. If we have those kits, we can only submit them without painting the shoulders of the HG Strike gray or painting in the HG Heavyarms Custom's clown mask? :(

    ReplyDelete
  102. that's why there's so many rg here :), doesn't need too much effort to make those models looks good lol ... maybe in the next contest GG should consider to make sub category of straight built dependence of the kit's grade, that means more prizes for this contest :p

    ReplyDelete
  103. if only I had a better camera --"

    ReplyDelete
  104. @the 4th anon from the bottom..

    team G.G. made the rules.not us..it's only fair to follow them..what's the point of having/setting those rules if the contestants won't even follow them?

    i just think that it would be fair for those who followed the rules to have a better chance of winning than those who didn't..now that would be very unfair, if the winner didn't even follow the "no paint and waterslide decals" rule..since it's the point of having the best "straight built" kit, meaning everything must come from the kit..

    ReplyDelete
  105. agreed..a "little" paint will make a whole lot difference..that's why team G.G. didn't allow it..

    ReplyDelete
  106. Agreed ... and i admire the one who puts his/her best efforts to make his/her model kit looks good even without painting. Yes, we 're talking 'bout the very basic modelling technique here ; clean cutting part from the sprue, sanding, remove seam-lines, panel-lining, and sticker/decal placement. GL to all participants and many thanks to GG Team.

    ReplyDelete
  107. Just like all the others who have posted this, the Extreme Gundam has a painted handle...

    ReplyDelete
  108. yes..that's the point of team G.G..to pick the one that looks great straight out of the box, the one that looks great even without paint..:D

    ReplyDelete
  109. agreed.. it only fair to all the contestant to follow rules just like other.. little paint job really make lot of different..

    ReplyDelete
  110. anyone knows when will the judges pick the awards?

    ReplyDelete
  111. I emailed team gg and go a response that they are still enforcing the no paint rules, and I did see that some entries had been taken out. =) Keep the rules!

    I thought they already selected the prizes, is in the main Gshot post.

    ReplyDelete
  112. yay for the rules..:D

    does the realtouch markers qualify as a tool for panel lining?cause from what i understood, finetip gundam markers are the only markers that are actually made for panel lining, the realtouch markers can be used for painting details, not just panel lining..if so, those with small colored details used realtouch markers and not finetip gundam markers cause i believe there are only three colors for the finetip markers, black, gray and brown..

    ReplyDelete
  113. Just wondering, is it fair to compare the straight built kit from various grade (HG, RG, MG, and even PG) in the same class of category?

    ReplyDelete
  114. i think is ok to compete within various of grade since if i not mistaken what the judges see is the clean, tidy of the straight build and the lining.

    ReplyDelete
  115. Citrus @ 1-jan 11.36 PM;
    thank you for the compliment. i personally admire the picture of Nguy SF. the lighting, hi quality camera and the pose itself. there's a lot of good pictures here, and hopefully GG will choose the best of it. cheers, good luck & have fun.

    -mior hezri-

    ReplyDelete
  116. In my opinion, the picture quality indeed is taken into consideration, but the main point of assessment is the model kit itself. The final work reflects the efforts of the modeller (ranging from cutting parts, sanding, seamlines removing, panel lining, and decal placement), and yeah of course it could only be proven through a decent picture quality :).

    ReplyDelete
  117. I think there should be a standard requirement for straight build photos.
    Like, a standing full body photo + closeup detail shots. Kinda like gunpla promo images XD

    It would be better for judging the skill of the modeller. Straightbuild shouldn't be about who can make the coolest poses or the prettiest pictures (Hey,those have their own category)

    ReplyDelete
  118. Found a violation! :O

    Brandon's RG Strike...
    The vents on the front skirts are painted black. It should be light gray like the upper half of the skirt.

    ReplyDelete
  119. Now, everyone's checking out the other contestant's RG's front skirt lol...

    ReplyDelete

    - coolest poses or the prettiest pictures DOES have advantages. especially who can build the kit nicely.
    - we never know what kind of pictures the contestant was submit for pic extra1 and extra2. the only displayed here only the main picture. So, definitely contestant will show other angles of their model, to show judges the quality of their own straight-build skill. IMO only. cheers..

  121. to G.G. and Judges...

    Hmm, just noticed something, the Crossbone by Najwan Bin Abdul Rahman looks like it has flatcoated, cause I have this crossbone ver ka too, and it really looks different, from the texture, color, it looks flatcoated or topcoated, plus look at the ends of core fighters, the yellow bits near the booster, it doesn't look like stickers, but looks painted, I might be wrong but, can you double check it, cause it will be unfair for all of those who entered the contest. Thanks

  122. Next year there should be some consideration into separating by grade. Straight Build is for beginners but the first round elimination guys are all Master Grades, Real Grades and even a perfect grade. Aside from SD Unicorn, it looks to me like beginners might as well not even enter.

  123. nope,its not top coated.this picture might not clearly shows it because of the lightning and the cape didnt help neither.still the other extra pics i sent have the whole body shown without he cape and he still have its plastic shininess.heck,i can still show it if you want.i still have it as it is as in the picture.=P
    btw good luck to the others.may the best wins.

  126. i'm a bit confused, cause there are seven pictures there but underneath it, it only says four names from the seven pictures..does that mean the bottom three are already eliminated?

  129. Semi-Gloss clear coat. Almost indistinguishable from real plastic. Hides plastic swirls and minor blemishes. You're welcome.

  130. Somewhat disappointing .. I see that the judges selected based only on pure straight built kit (no lining, adjusting & trimming decal, or fixing seam lines), which means ignoring the efforts of the other participants who have worked hard and spent lots of time to do those things. Btw congratulations to the participants who have passed the preliminary round. Good luck :).

  131. @Anonymous above: On what do you base your comment? We don't even know why they choose those kits yet. Is more disappointing that people make baseless claims...

  135. good work henry. could the judges probably give some feedback on the other kits that made it to the final selection perhaps? i'm curious what your opinions are on the finalists.

    ----yeah.what a winner..:)

    also to Team G.G., i agree with the comment above, can you guys show us the comments on the first elimination?like how you picked the seven finalists..:)

  140. so in order to win this competition you'll have to get a master grade, because it has decals and clear stickers,isn't it? I think it's unfair for those who had post pictures of their HG because it doesn't come with decals although the pictures are taken well..
    Gundam Guy, the next time that you'll make a straight build competition I think you should divide them into different categories, like straight build HG, straight build MG or straight build PG. that's all...

  141. It's one of those things that has to be done. We'd ask people to give themselves extra travel time if they have to go in that particular area.
