This is a Kontest that we mods have been planning for a while now. We just needed to wait on Fulcy to get some kustom aluminum and resin parts made. They're koming soon so we decided to announce the Kompetition now to get you guys planning and started. Here's the info:

Kontest Rules:
[list=1]
  • Only the Gundam Master Grade Kampfer Kit is allowed. You may use parts of other kits for kit-bashing/scratchbuilding.
  • Kit cannont be OOB (out of box). This is a Kustom Kontest so all entries must be modified. There will be seperate kategories for light and heavy modifications. Judges will decide what is konsidered light and heavy.*
  • OOB (Out of Box, no mods) Builds allowed.  OOB will have it's own kategory. OOB's must be painted or finished in the "no-paint style".
  • Must be all new kreation unfinished at the start of the kompetition.
  • Must be obvious and not blurry mods/photo dokumentation of the build process to prove what mods were made. In-progress thread must be kreated in Kontest forum. No secret projects!
  • Post in-progress threads in this forum.
  • If prizes are offered, prize donator reserves the right to request that prize winner kover shipping kosts. Overseas shipping isn't cheap!
  • FFF staff cannot enter/win, but can still participate just for the hell of it.
  • Deadline for entries is June 1st, 2007 - July 1st, 2007
  • Winners announced by July 1st, 2007 - August 1st, 2007
  • Entries eligible for Model of the Month too for month finished entry was posted.
  • Rules subject to changes without notice.[/list:o]

    Available soon!

    MechaSkunk.com will offer a $5.00 coupon (for orders over $10) to all members that use MechaSkunk parts on their entries. This coupon will be given to all entrants that finish their builds before the contest deadline and used MechaSkunk parts. Coupon is for Future orders at the MechaSkunk.com store and not valid towards any prior purchases or before contest deadline.

    Award Kategories:

    Heavy Mods

    Light Mods

    ∙ Gold
    ∙ Silver
    ∙ Bronze

    *Klarification of mods as follows:

    Not a mod:
    ∙ Custom paint/decals
    ∙ Switching limbs, heads, weapons, etc... with no structural changes. (No FrankenGundams)
    ∙ Seam filling

    Mods:
    ∙ Adding MechaSkunk ®© parts
    ∙ Modifying mobility
    ∙ Structually changing anything by adding/removing plastic, metal, etc...
    ∙ Creating NEW weapons, backpacks, etc... (Weapon mods only would still leave the base kit OOB)

Wow, I literally JUST got an MG Kampfer, and a second spikey shoulder from R10.  I think FF is spying on me.   :shock:
I'm in, I can't wait to be a member of the KKK...K (good thing it's a 'Krazy' competition, or I'd have to call the Southern Poverty Law center on y'all).  It'll be fun.

Maybe we need to start a thread on good places to buy the Kämpfer from...

Most people who enter probably got them from the Amazon.com sale a while back. Another reason for the Komp.

Though, it is a good question - RainbowTen has them for $27.50

http://www.rainbowten.co.jp/english/

and HLJ has them for $34.30

http://www.hlj.com/product/BAN900366

and there are several available off the always popular evilbay...

Kampfer

In any event - this is exactly why we've set the completion date so far in the future - both to give me time to get my ass in gear, but to also give everyone who wants to participate some time to save to get either a Master Grade Kampfer, or if they already have one, somce knick knacks to really trick it out...

Looks like I'll be finally getting a Kampfer! I've been looking at getting one for a long while now and, well, I've finally got the motivation to get one.

All of these K's remind me somewhat of Mortal Kombat.  :shock:

Okay, I gotta ask-  :?

It says:

4. Must be all new kreation unfinished at the start of the kompetition.

I have an MG Kampfer I built a couple years back in what you'd call the "no paint" style, so I didn't bother buying one from the Amazon sale. Back then I would have called it finished, but by my current standards it's very unfinished. If I take this unpainted model apart, rebuild it the "right" way, add mods and paint it, etc. is it OK for the kompetition?

I'm sure I'm not the only one who has a Kampfer they'd like to re-do rather than buying a new kit.

That is fine - #4 was more in reference to any person who may have a kampfer that he's already been working on, and is close to completion of it.  If you are going to tear it apart, and redo it specifically for this competition, then that fits this competition perfectly (though I'm not eligible, I've got two that I'm going to tear apart) .

It'd be sweet to have some custom "Skunk Works" decals to add to the kits.

Do you mean the warnings I designed for the MechaSkunk store or all new Kampfer-specific ones? :?

Sorry I wasn't specific.  I meant Kampfer specific ones.  

Of course, if this has been discussed before let me know and I'll go do a search on it.  I wouldn't want to be a forum nub.  :D

Alright, mike and I just discussed this, and we decided to try and drum up more interest in the comp, there will now be a best OOB prize - total still to be decided, but it'll be some sort of assortment of detailing parts from my store, to help you get past the OOB phase and into at least light modifications...

Are multiple entries allowed? Probably a stupid question, but no one else asked it yet. I've gotten tons of ideas since this was announced and am still trying to sort 'em all out.

I was also wondering which of the kit's thrusters Fulcy's K-Thrusters are intended to replace.

Sure, enter as many times as you want!  The more the better (and the more stuff I'll sell ;) ).

As far as the thrusters go - yes.  They are intended to replace all the thrusters on the Kampfer...
