30 Day Gundam Build Competition
Animeggroll presents the first 30 day Gundam Model Building Competition. This competition allows Builder to work from home for 30 days and then bring in the finished product on Sunday March 26th to be judged. There will be a first, second and third place winner selected. Registration fee will be $5.00. There will only be 16 slots available.
The registration will open on Sunday February 12th and close on Sunday February 26th. The builder will register themselves and the model they are building. On February 25th and 26th all registered builders must present the un-built model at Animeggroll to ensure that all Builders only have 30 to complete their work for judging.
