WINNING G-SHOT IMAGE
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.
Adam Sonar (Gundam Australia Forum)
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.
