I'd suggest a good 5 to 6 months to give a month or two to get kits and parts together. I'm not sure if that would suit anybody else but more of a minimum than maximum for me. Not that mine will be near as good as anybody else's even with 6 years to work on it.

I'm going to be completely honest and probably blow some people's minds...I don't get the appeal of IBO

I get where you are coming from, it is not because you like gundams that you necessarily like any new serie coming out, also some of the IBO designs are quite different. I found the serie quite average tbh but I'm interested by a few mecha design so IBO got my vote, I would suggest at least 6 month if not until the end of the year for the timeframe.

Just because there is one I'm interested in, would a resin entry be ok ?

Yeah there is something about the designs and animation, just can't get past it. Don't get me wrong though, some of those kits have a lot of potential.

Well, since I have a few Zakus and GMs in my Backlog but no IBO kits :)

Oh, regarding the timeframe: The more, the better, 'cause I already have a few projects to finish.

Amen Steve! I'm with you on this one buddy... I don't care for most of the designs from IBO... U.C all the way!!

I'm not sure myself about the time frame for the build off.... 4 months?

Which ever way we go Im going to need to order kits etc so I will need 3 or 4 weeks just to gather materials so a time frame of 4/5 months sound good to me.

Whichever build-off wins, we will refine the entry requirements :)

Good call there, Simon. For some reason competitions were popping-up left and right the past months and with great prices too.

Good luck in those other competitions guys, I was interested in Zack's competition
but I have way too much on the go that needs to be finished before I start anything else..
Been buying more than building lately  :-\

Looking at my stash of un-built kits I have 5 different HG G.M's,
an MG Rgm-79 Q and I just ordered the absolutely stunning new GM Sniper II.
And my Zaku collection, well, I won't go there. ::) :P :o 8)

Needless to say I'll be ready for the mecha lounge whenever it starts. Can't wait!

GM's are oh so pretty. They're awesome 'canvases' I think for heavy mod work.
