Gunpla General
« on: 2016-02-10 01:04:41 »
Building Gunpla (short for GUNdam PLAstic models) has been a hobby of mine for basically as long as I've been into anime. I'm curious if there's any talent or enthusiasm for it among the current members of the club. It would be great if we could use this thread to show off our work and share our best techniques and information.

Pic related is an example of some of my better work to date. It's a 1/100 scale No Grade Gunner ZAKU Warrior (Lunamaria Custom) from Gundam SEED Destiny. It's not painted, but I detailed it with an ink pen and sanded down the surfaces for a smooth, finished feel.

If anyone wants to know more about this hobby, feel free to ask right here!

I've never built a Gunpla or other like model before, but I used to do a lot of DIY RC cars and planes. What would you say is a good type of kit to look for for someone just starting out?
