    GBWC 2017 Eligible Parts?

    Hi all,

    I plan on entering this year's GBWC. I'm almost done with painting my main kit, the HG Origins Mobile Worker, but I suddenly became worried about the eligibility of some of the additional stuff I'm adding. The majority of additions were taken from other Bandai kits, but I also scavenged a few things from old military kits and kotobukiya MSG parts.

    List of questionables
    • Waterslides from a huey kit
    • two small handle bars and some small armor parts from kotobukiya MSG sets
    • A wire tow cable with plastic eyelets from a KV-1 tank
    • Nuts and bolts by Meng


    The rules seem super strict and I've seen somewhere that decals have to be made by Bandai. I couldn't find any clear answer online, so I'm hoping people here can shed some light on this matter. Thanks!

    Yea seems like they reworded the rules in general, but generally its as long as the main kit is bandai you're fine.

    Thanks for the quick reply/reassurance Squee! I was worried that judges may see these non-bandai additions and label it as infringement or counterfeit or something.

    If you have facebook, you could contact bluefin corp. They run the US leg of the judging.

    OK I will ask, if no one else will......can we see it!?!?? Or do you have a WIP ? Or is it like the HLJ contest where you cannot post it online or in a forum, or a WIP, or basically anywhere.

    List of things to do today. 1. Get a sword. 2. Name it Kindness. 3 Kill people with Kindness.

    It's GBWC. I think it's fine to post things online. However, I personally don't like to for some reason. Still needs final weathering, but here are some pics to show the questionable additions.

    That sneak peak is nice. The damage looks great from here.
