This October I participated in the 8th minikiyakon plastic model contest organized by Kiyahobby, one of the most well-known plastic model shops in Japan. This time the topic was Tamiya's recently released 1/35 US Tank Destroyer M10.
For comparison you can see what other people presented here, here, here and here. Our plastic models also appeared on the Armour Modelling magazine, one of the most famous plastic modelling magazines in Japan. You can see the final winners here. Unfortunately I didn't win anything but being a beginner I wasn't expecting it either. Participating in the contest was good as motivation.
