Part B: The Categories
We have three major categories: Figure, Robot and Diorama.
Figure Clarification
  • Entry will count on the KIT only. The base or any add-on will not be considered as part of the judging criteria.
  • Figure must be in resin.
  • Add-ons can be made of any material. They would not be considered as part of the main body and should be removable while the kit will still be able to stand on its own for display.
  • Scratch building or conversion of existing resin kit is highly encouraged.
Robot Clarification
  • Entry will count on the KIT only. The base or any background element will not be considered as part of the judging criteria.
  • Robot must be in resin UNLESS the entry is a Resin Conversion Set with plastic frame.
  • Add-ons can be made of any material. They would not be considered as part of the main body and should be removable while the kit will still be able to stand on its own for display.
  • Scratch building or conversion of existing resin kit is highly encouraged.
Diorama Clarification
  • For Diorama, display base, add-on or other accessories must be present. These elements will be part of the judging criteria.
  • At least ONE model in the scene must be in resin.
  • Add-on can be made with other materials.
Judging Criteria
A good diorama must tells some stories, action or event. Thus items in the scene must consist of interaction. Customized works are highly appreciated. In other words, putting a few unrelated models on a fancy base will severely affect the judging result.
Some good examples
Diorama 2012 -- Le Piege
Diorama 2012 -- tribute to the animated film Swan Lake
Diorama 2011 -- A break in the day
Diorama 2011 -- Relax in the beach
A description can be provided to describe for the entry. It may help others to understand more about the work, but it is absolutely NOT a channel for telling the story or action and thus will NOT be counted in judging.
