Each year a company called E2046.com runs a garage kit competition which showcases custom model kits from around the world. It’s an amazing competition to follow even if you don’t intend to enter as the creative approach to some of the models is just unbelievable.
The competition is divided into three categories:
Figure – Any human character based model kit
Robot – Any single none human kit
Diorama – These should ideally tell some sort of story or feature a scene from the series
Each year e2046.com receive entries from all over the world and the talent these competitions attracts is really inspiring. These are kits which skilled model makers have put maybe a hundred plus hours into and the love and skill really show through.
The schedule for the competition runs over months as follows
03 January 2017: Registration & Submission Begin
31 May 2017: Registration & Submission End
07 June 2017: Entries Posting Up
14 June 2017: Public Polling Begins
30 June 2017: End of Public Polling
05 July 2017: Announcement of Results
Garage kits are something I’d recommend every model builder or toy lover to take a look at. They are a great art form which let you be as creative as you like. You can build them, paint them or even modify them to make an even cooler model.
