2010 IPMS Philippines BA National Scale Model Competition

"The IPMS Philippines Bert Anido National Scale Model Competition is the largest and most prestigious gathering of scale models and modelers in the region.

The Nationals is an annual, week-long event that has been held at SM Megamall in Madaluyong, Metro Manila since 2003; an event that draws much foot traffic and onlookers.

The Nationals are normally scheduled for early November in the build up to the Christmas season. Models are entered free of charge and are scrutinized by a panel of expert judges within their respective category. These categories are based on the scale, subject and modifications, if any."

Thank you IPMS Philippines and see you again on the 2011 Nationals!


MG RX-78 NT-1 Done


Late post, since my cam broke. This is my NT-1 build and entry to a local compe by Mechapinoy. The inspiration behind this build was both the RG line by Bandai and some garage resin kits. I wanted to detail it up but I also dont want to put too many add on parts/MSG's or PS sheets that can make the outcome very busy. Instead I resorted to armor cuts and addition of new panel lines. The stock head unit was also replaced with an MG RX-78 OYW version, I think it fits the theme well and it looks better. Ankle joints extended by 2.5mm to allow greater articulation for the feet and better stance. Paint scheme was based on the G3 Gundam. Some panels painted in gray to achieve the RG feel.
