Seeing this post on PLAMO: http://plamo.outthere.info/forum/showthread.php?tid=8431
gives me a new thrill to enter bakuc i mean Bandai Model Kit WORLD CUP!!!! Yup you heard it right.
As of now only US and i think Malaysia have announcement so it may be a new competition or this will replace BAKUC.
Reading through the US rules there are new options for all modeler's out there:
Main Category and Second Category
Main Category focus on an all modification war! This is where all modified kits battle it out to be their countries representative. There is also a new option for us! Group entry! yup there will be a group category on the Main category.
Second Category is mainly for the OOTB (Out of the Box) builds where it focus on mostly the basics, sealing, painting, and clean finishes.
Though the prizes indicate a Medal so we will not be seeing the BAKUC Trophy anymore i guess :(
Hope this will be implemented on the Philippines as well :)
