General Comments from Judges
Every work is very excellent so it was hard to decide which one is better. It took me much time to select just 3 works. The age of applicants ranges from 5 to 63. I wish I could evaluate the works by age. If more works could be selected, I love the theme of “Place where the Insect Mechas live” and want to vote for “Robot that can help you” that is strikingly cute. I appreciated applicants’ works and was impressed by their imagination and also got inspirations. It is a good opportunity for me to expand my imagination. I would like to express my gratitude again for inviting me as one of the judges. Thank you very much.
I felt the energy from model lovers of different ages. I will participate next time!!
Thanks to your support, we could hold the 3rd model / miniature contest at SMALL WORLDS TOKYO and many people (38 works in total) participated in this contest. The age of applicants ranges from 5 to 63 and a wide range of people of different ages and genders participated in this contest. There are many unique works with variations. I was happy to watch the works, but at the same time I felt difficult to make judgments. Moreover, many customers came to SMALL WORLDS TOKYO during the exhibition period and they seemed to enjoy taking photos and talking with each other while appreciating these works. It is a “Full Scratch Building & Mixingbuild” with the theme of “SF Mecha”. The world of science fiction was presented through Full Scratch Building & Mixingbuild and all participants showed us unique works. I feel again the depth of your works that cannot be described SF in one word. It is really an exciting contest and thank you very much for your participation.
About the Scratch Building & Mixingbuild Contest of this time. What parts were used? What objects were used?… I gazed at every work. As a maker, I am always thinking about “This could be used. What a waste…”. I care much about all kinds of junk parts and am not willing to throw them away… (lol). This project is marvelous that it is a little bit like SDG. It motivates us to… create new life from the spirit of always keeping acute insight and taking good care of things. The contest gathered unique works filled with enthusiasm. We also enjoyed them. Thank you very much.
As a person who usually creates dioramas and miniatures of actual landscapes, vehicles and other infrastructures, I was concerned about what perspective I should take in judging when I learned the themes were “Scratch Building” and “Mixingbuild”. However, when I saw all the submitted works “lined up in rows”, my anxiety was blown away immediately, and my surprise and strong interests were unleashed at once. I was completely attracted by the worldview. Lactic acid beverage containers commonly found in supermarkets, caps, tooth flosses, etc. Though the materials are these everyday objects, I had no idea what the works were made from unless I was told. The transformation from “materials” to “parts” was beyond my imagination. They are all excellent works. From the above perspective, I voted for the works that had a particularly great impact on me this time. I served as a judge in the past contests. But this time, it gives me a great experience to see the works with such a fresh feeling. I personally think the contest is fantastic. It leaves me a strong impression.
