Is the Blue Destiny ok?

Also, if I am feeling ambitious, can I submit two entries? I might try to do a Zaku and a GM if my schedule permits.

I'm also interested to know about multiple entries. I have an Idea for a diorama that would have more than one kit involved.

Sorry old chap, the Blue Destiny is in the RX series so no, also only one entry each allowed.

Muliple kits in a single diorama I think will be ok as long as it's clear which kit in the dio is up for the contest part of the build-off.
