🥇1st Winner [bEXM-132 Rozen Nova]

Modeler: Daniel Cunningham

Base model: [Portanova / Cielnova]

30 MM contest winner 1

Rozen Nova. This suit exhibits both originality and creativity combined. All the panel lining and painting, up to the pistons and pipes, is immersive and clean. The decals and other prints all emphasize the quality of the build. Together with Cielnova Option armor as knee blades and a new way of using Portnanova legs as arms, this encapsulates the essence of the 30 minute mission’s customizing feature. Purple, Pink, and a Mono-Eye makes this a villain or anti-hero worth remembering.

 

🥈2nd Winner [Nightmare Gundam]

Modeler: Aaron Ishaeik

Base model: [Alto / Portanova] 

30 MM contest winner 2

Very little decals. Very little paint palette. Very little mercy. The execution is phenomenal and execution is its will. This model boasts a lot in the miniscule details such as the perceived size of the build, the chaos it brings in its wake and the worn down look that still feels unyielding to any foe it faces. It has combined various parts that wherever you look, there is a weapon ready and locked on its target. Truly a Masterpiece.

 

🥉3rd [Final Sekiha Tenky-Haro]

Modeler: Caleb Lunt

Base model: [Alto]

30 MM contest winner 3

 Explosive! Gold! And Haro! This build takes your eyes and definitely sets its presence. While we can wonder how a Haro can be this big and utilized as a weapon, there is no doubt that the painting and detailing is superb. Great use of effect parts as well as the rock bits flying away. Great use of the color palette to try something new. The freedom to break your limits definitely is here.

Detail: Kimaris Vidar Katana, Cielnova Armor, Alto Close Combat Armor, Portanova Otion Part, etc such as Other Paints and Weathering Detail.

“Close combat and Full Throttle! This Alto has the perfect blend of Sci-fi aesthetics and mecha-killing intent. Unique in design with asymmetrical shoulder frames, this solo unit is no stranger to victories on the battlefield no matter what the cost. The little mobile armor is a nice touch to the solidarity of the build.”

 [Cielnova]

Modeler: Brandon Lazaro

Base model: [Cielnova] 

Detail: Painted w/ Tamiya brand paint, weathered and additional decal water slides.

“This Cielnova unit is Ready for Battle! No scuffs, scars, or battle-damage will stop this model to carry on the mission. The use of orange in the hangar is a great contrast to the dark green of the figure and is a perfect fit to the theme. The weathering is on point and this build proves that even a basic kit can be impressive.”
