Will models posted be required to be completely paint-free?
For example, people assembling models that have been primed or bits of those converted models have been primed.
As painting is sometime easier before assembly is completed the after picture does not have to be bare plastic/metal. However, this competition is for conversion not painting so any painted areas should be there to avoid difficulty painting the model later. If anyone attempts to abuse this then then the rules may change in the future.
