**Drumroll

...and the winners are......

Surprising actually!

I envisioned some wild departures from the stock standard grey, and what I got was a couple of shades on the colour wheel at most.  :D

When I initially launched this idea I thought that the design of the kit and the close-to-primer grey that the original images portrayed was a relatively blank canvas begging for some wild alterations. I thought it was a real imagination exciter. Something to get the creativity burning.

As you will see below, all of the completed entries were of a very high standard, not deviating more than two shades away from grey. Silver. Gold. Black. Light grey. We almost had a pink one but it wasn't to be. We almost had a bright yellow as well but that came unstuck as well. Perhaps it is the curse of the Delta Plus? ;)

Spoiler: Discussing the Kit (click to show/hide)



On to the competition:

As with all competitions we have more starters than we do finishers so let me first congratulate everybody who finished and secondly thank all of you who attempted an entry. I still would love to see those who did not make it to completion do so.

By your accounts this was a difficult and trying kit to complete. Well done on making it happen.

All of the completed entries are of a high standard. I would go so far as to call some of them exceptional.

So let's have a look at the entries shall we?

Falldog





...and the winners are......

1st Place: Falldog! Winning a MG Full Armor Unicorn courtesy of Hobbylink Japan



Smooth, fresh, and clean. The Big Boi of the Delta Plus recolour comp. For my liking the most imaginative and professionally executed paint job. Light colours are difficult to apply smoothly and evenly, and the yellow compliments the grey so well. Metallic red pistons for some pop and the medium and darker tones to tie it all together. Bonus points go to Falldog for the awesome base which I really like a lot, for going to the trouble to take 15 good photos, and for transforming the kit once painted. I also enjoyed the addition of the ReZEL Commander's BFG and the extra ReZEL rifle added to the backpack. None of these things influenced my decision however. Solely looking at colours and application.

Falldog you mention having enough MG Unicorns to start a small army. If you wish to swap your FA Unicorn with one of the other guys for one of their HG Banshees that's your call mate. ;)


2nd Place: Wolfman X! Winning a HG Unicorn Gundam 02 Banshee - Destroy Mode courtesy of Hobbylink Japan



For a smart and subdued shift in pigmentation ;) The differences in tone that you have achieved are subtle and really very complimentary to each other. The chrome frame and bazooka bring it to life, and the gold highlights on the pistons, beam saber handle, and shield barrels make it sparkle. I'd love to have seen that gold used somewhere on the upper body and pehaps as a highlight on the bazooka as well. This is pretty close to the ReZEL colour scheme which is something I was really hoping to see. Great to see you advancing with the Airbrush at such a steady pace mate.

3rd Place: Zenma5ter! Winning a HG Unicorn Gundam 02 Banshee - Unicorn Mode courtesy of Hobbylink Japan



My decision was solely based on how well I thought each entrant applied a different colour scheme to the Delta Plus.

Please also allow me to extend my apologies that I was unable to acquire the spare rifle parts prior to closing the comp. The spare parts shipment has been at a waypoint for some time and will arrive in the next few days for those of you who are still interested. I did reduce the number of rifles from 10 to 3 as I couldn't imagine selling all of them at what will probably be closer to $15 each than $10.


Congratulations guys! Thank you for participating in the Gundam Australia Delta Plus Recolour comp! Your prizes will be forwarded directly to you from HLJ. Please now contact me via PM to ensure I have your current address on file.



A special thank you to FuryS12 for your Delta Plus Recolour App, and your ongoing help with the site. You are invaluable to us mate. My sincere thanks.

Finally I would like to say a very special thank you to Syd and Ryan at HLJ for providing the prizes for the competition, for being great to work with, and for their ongoing support of Gundam Australia. You guys rock.

Thank you Hobbylink Japan!


;D
