Filipino hobbyist James Marc Quinsaat won the second place prize in the recently concluded GunPla Builders World Cup 2018 Finals held last December 9 in Tokyo, Japan.
His entry is entitled “Everything starts with a Proto type”. “The main concept is to have a Prototype Gundam designed and built by “Gyanko”, assisted by G.U.S.bot (General Utility Service bot) that is not weaponized but instead meant to help people. The 1/6 GM Worker E.R.U. (Emergency Response Unit) Prototype – Search and Rescue is born.” Quinsaat’s comment about his work
Yusuke Sato from Japan took the championship this year with his Gundam Exia R II diorama while Thailand’s Vichayuth Eiam-Ong bagged third place.
