Not having these photos may negatively affect the judge’s ability to accurately judge the quality of your work.

Judging Criteria:

Entrants will be judged in 4 categories with each category receiving a score ranging from 1-10 for a maximum of 40 points.  Categories and descriptions are as follows.

Cleanliness - How clean is your build? Are seam lines and nubs hidden? Is your paint job free of debris and imperfections?

Concept - How well actualized is your original concept in this kit? What story does your kit tell? Does your model have a place in the story? What was your goal with this model and how well did you achieve it?

Customization- How well have you integrated custom elements into your kit Custom weapons, armor, and paint job and how well they align with your cleanliness and concept will be judged.

Presence - Is your model a showstopper. How is it presented? Does it have a stand or maybe it's in a diorama.
