Here it is folks, after 6 months of on-and-off work, my GBWC entry. I have mixed feelings about it. There are some parts that I definitely could have done better, but on the other hand it’s without any doubts my finest piece so far.
Here are the pics I sent when I made my entry. I would have preferred to participate physically but I’m not exactly sure when and where it will be held. It’s the first year for my country and I didn’t quite get the finer details.
That was the first time I used the flat black paper as a backdrop. It’s not the easiest to use (thanks to my lovely wife for her help), but the results are quite interesting. The colors look a lot different than when using a white background.
As for the competition itself, while I’d love to place first, I feel like my work is far from the level of the other countries I’ve seen this year (and the past years). So in a way I hope to win, obviously, but at the same time I hope to have someone with a much better model represent my country internationally 🙂
And now, for reference, here’s the HG Jesta (Cannon) I made when I first started customizing my kits, two years ago :
