Mecha Warehouse is excited to announce our next build-off and photo contest themed "Repaired".
- An entry will constitute an individual picture of a build or diorama featuring a mobile suit or mecha that has been damaged significantly and then repaired in a visible way.
- For the purposes of this contest, visible repairs must constitute more than just recoloring 'replacement parts' and might include, but not be limited to:
- Replaced limbs or armor utilizing parts not from the original kit
- Visible welds from field repairs
- Field expedient repairs such as armored plating
- Mobile suits can be of any scale (SD, 1/144, 1/100, 1/60, 1/48).
- You may modify or paint any way you see fit in accordance with the theme.
- Entries must be a new build specific for this competition.
- Entry must be 100% the work of the entrant, and may not include parts customized or finished by any other individual.
- Photos must be unmodified (i.e. no photoshop, filters, etc)
- Entries will be seeded into a bracket based on public votes through an online voting platform.
- Winners of each bracket match will be determined by the judging team via popular vote.
- Judges will use the following criteria to make a decision when deciding matches:
- How well the feature mobile suit represents the 'Repaired' theme.
- Execution of the build (are there nubs, seams, mold lines and other modeling imperfections visible).
- Presentation and photo composition (how well does the photo display the build).
- Judges who have seen an entry in person will recuse themselves from voting on that match.
