A quick run down on us, we are a independent club established by the Manifest organizing Committee. For a few years we have been running the manifest Zoids workshop and only started running monthly sessions late last year. We stock all tools and products requires to build a model kit including a air brush set up for attendees to use. We also supply cheap beginner friendly kits at cost price and a roster of experienced members to help beginners. Our workshops are a very friendly and lay back, we also provide entertainment like mecha anime screenings. Membership not required all are welcomed to join us...

Small but really fun turn out (expected day after grand finial) a great time to lay out some experiments. The new primer is awesome, the tarp replacing the drop mats is awesome and we were able to manage one staff member down with out issue. In talks with George to have one more meet late October then break around November for some drinks at Robot bar dates to be confirmed.   

and dont forget to bring in a small container to get some of that mig powder i got as well

Great to see another good turn out. Looks like fun was had by all.

Wolfman I would be interested to see a new WIP from you if you can find the time ^^

Post by: Hoardz01 on September 27, 2010, 07:39:25 PM
Looks like great fun, good to have a little crew all getting into it when normally it's such a personal thing building/painting your kits.
Maybe in the future us qld folk will have a similair event.

Post by: Wolfman X on September 28, 2010, 12:15:59 AM
mousemuffins, october being the final one followed by drink ups on november so you got plenty of time to consider. date is yet to be finalized but it will be mentioned here.
Sonar all in due time now, but coz im capped im down to having restricted dialup kinda speeds so surfing is a pain but what else is new on my side. Hopefully i could get the little bugger done that way i dont need to have to do a WIP at all. speaking of which, my GN-X......
Title: Re: Mecha Workshop Melbourne
Post by: Sonar on September 28, 2010, 08:23:26 AM
Damn you're still getting capped? Hopefully my last 2 weeks of painfully slow internet were last month and I will be switched over to my new plan before I hit my limit with my existing one. Unlimited, no throttling. Yeah.

Post by: Wolfman X on September 30, 2010, 12:28:10 AM
indeed sonar, but thats coz now im dling a bit more after that upgrade. i think i should show a bit more restraint though. getting capped too early leads to "meh" kinda days
Title: Re: Mecha Workshop Melbourne
Post by: Wolfman X on October 09, 2010, 08:15:32 PM
hey alan, i got a lot of seed and s-destiny kits im scrapping out due to new cabinet i bought from ikea. so what im proposing here is to donate my unwanted kits into the bits box. trust me, i thought it through and im more then willing. besides im more into the bigger kits ^^

just be ready to get a bit of space. i think mike might want some replacements for a few of his kits too like his dom tropper he was working on for some time and i got 2 dom troopers ( had 3 but broke it)
Title: Re: Mecha Workshop Melbourne
Post by: mokana_man on October 09, 2010, 10:30:03 PM
Sounds great we will be able to find some space of corse I have no problems with Mike helping him self (he does it all the time  ;D). If there is anything cool I may pluck for my personal bits box will fling some cash to ya.

Also I came back from the Manifest AGM, we are good to run and expand for next year. Will be submitting a full report next year, I'm happy to email the report after is offically released by request.
Title: Re: Mecha Workshop Melbourne
Post by: Wolfman X on October 09, 2010, 10:58:21 PM
or do so during mecha workshop. im in no hurry to know the report of the workshop. trust me,m youll find whatever i got useful indeed, though a few of the ktis were painted with enamel so hopefully thats not a problem for you. btw, seems the vollunteers meeting is on the following day after mecha workshop so ill be attending that for sure ^^

Good question, our farther organization Manifest can't get there sh!t together. For those not in the loop Manifest has had there AGM and power has changed handes with a management restructure on the books. All I can say so far is it is not looking good atm with our requirement being very low on there agenda. Am still planing an end of year break up in the city which you are invited to.

Now I will give this thread back to the z'gok girl...
Title: Re: Mecha Workshop Melbourne
Post by: Sonar on October 22, 2010, 06:14:17 PM
Damn that's unfortunate news. Hope it gets sorted out to an agreeable outcome.
Title: Re: Mecha Workshop Melbourne
Post by: TheGhostofZeon on October 22, 2010, 06:22:15 PM
What sort of involvement does Manifest have with the club? Is it possible to continue on without the Manifest backing? It would suck if the workshop couldn't continue due to the new organisers not being Gunpla friendly...
Title: Re: Mecha Workshop Melbourne
Post by: mokana_man on October 22, 2010, 06:58:21 PM

We did have some serious issues with Manifest but that has been resolved. Mecha Workshop is an independent club and can leave Manifest at anytime. What Manifest offers us is a venue and public liability. Plus we are comfortable.

The issue is the Manifest committee itself is in a self destructive mood of late and are neglecting all there sub groups including us. Worse case scenario we will not have any meetings for a little while.

On a another note if anyone has access to a venue for 20 we are happy to move in, I can get my hands on free public liability...

cant due to work restraints. hyeah i figured i shouldnt have posted my address there. tried to delete that msg, but xperia just crapped on me during lorne.
i was suppose to get it this month though. i dont mind the postage anyway but if you want me to reimburse you on postage, then ill do just that

Official announcement:

Mecha Workshop will be closed for the year and will reopen in early March. We apologizes for the October meet never got scheduled due to difficulty booking the office while Manifest reshuffled its Committee and currently reorganizing itself. We would like to publicly thank Avi, George and Animasia for what has been a successful year. We would like to invite anyone interested to a end of year party on Friday December 17 even if you have not attended a meeting and are interested in the club. Will plan a light dinner followed by drinks at Robot bar in the CBD.

Title: Re: Mecha Workshop Melbourne
Post by: mokana_man on December 13, 2010, 10:20:18 PM
This Friday is the Mecha Workshop Christmas party. Plan is to meet at the main stairs at Flinders street station facing the young and jackson hotel. Will be there to meet people from 5:30pm to 6pm and will head off for a light dinner before drinks at robot.

My number is 0403651032 if anyone is lost or running late and can't find the bar/ restaurant.

Also bad news, we have lost our manifest social coordinator PD George due to a long term disagreement with the committee. He became a good friend of mecha workshop and worked hard in helping to get this club where it is now and will be missed. Mecha Workshop is thankful for his services to us.

I'm playing my last card atm which is reliable but with consequences, I saw this coming and we are still good. Sonar, the politics are that deep and pointless to the point of playing dumb. This convention wishes to destroy itself…
Title: Re: Mecha Workshop Melbourne
Post by: Wolfman X on December 14, 2010, 08:09:41 PM
majprity of em dont see gunpla or any anime related kit building as a viable thing to hold. and they had a leader reshuffle since avi stepped down from his position. it might be a interesting year forecha workshop from next year
Title: Re: Mecha Workshop Melbourne
Post by: Sonar on December 14, 2010, 09:48:19 PM
Do you need 'em that badly? Why can't you just abandon them and go solo? Sounds like they take what we do lightly anyway.
Title: Re: Mecha Workshop Melbourne
Post by: Wolfman X on December 15, 2010, 12:34:23 AM
other then the venue, i dont think so. however unless we find another venue or an agreement with the MOC fellas it seems bleak from here on out. which really sucks though and we had a good thing going as well.
till on october i thought there was a final mecha workshop meet but instead it was some moc meeting instead.
Title: Re: Mecha Workshop Melbourne
Post by: Shifty on December 15, 2010, 05:52:14 AM

Title: Re: Mecha Workshop Melbourne
Post by: mokana_man on December 15, 2010, 06:40:28 PM

There are a few plane and tank clubs around Melbourne, we are the only Gundam club and according to the IPMS the only one in Australia to there knowledge. Other clubs do accept Gundam as we do accept people bringing in planes and tanks (which 9/10 turns into a mecha musumes).

it seems bleak from here on out.
You know I'm better then that, I have a trick or two up my sleeve even if it invloves closing the club for a year or two. We will rise again as Neo Mecha Workshop and call our new home Axis.

Was a small turn out but heaps of fun looking at vintaged tin robots and smashing down the Saki. Due to the interest I've received we will plan another one mid January. This was a bit poorly planed due to lots of people hosting family trips or Christmas partys. The funny parts was we spent more money at the hobby store then on alcohol lol.

The new Victorian Hobby center has reopened and is currently stocking a large amount of unusual subjects and gunpla, yay. Make sure to check it out...

During the party/ meet we discussed our problems and success of this year and belive the good out weights the bad and plan on running the working in 2011. We are still sticking to the early March start date.

Thanks for your support everybody and a Happy new year from Alan and Richard...

Back n kicking tail!

Over the break period i acquired a bunch o different and interesting kits to move at workshops.
For people who are unfamiliar with the way this works, I hunt around YJA auctions looking for bulk lots, old, unavailable in the west stuff, and oddities.  I then flog this stuff on at cost. Usually iit comes out to around $10 for a normal ungraded 1/144 kit.

Stuff in the stock cupboard at the moment incluides:
transformers gashaphon kits.
1/144 ungraded (but approximately HG) Victory, G gundam and turned A Kits.
First grade seed kits
other weird stuff. Got a pocky grade zaku, cup noodle mobile suits, a few SD's, and some realy old ZZ kits. in a few days (once the house mate packs up the Xmas tree and i can get in there and do a proper count) i'll put up a list o everything.

when i toss up the list its for two resons:
1) so i know what to bring

Hey Rant,

How much for the pocky zaku and some cup noodle mobile suits shipped to me in NSW as I hear Australia Post is insanely cheap?
grin. Got 4 of the cup noodle minis, 30 bucks for the 4, and 15 for the pocky zaku.  Shipping to metro sydney is approximately 17 bucks.  Add 4% if you pay via pay pal, nothign if you direct deposit. If you give me a post code I can work out a more accurate price. Will also have to wait till my housemate packs up his Xmas tree and i can get the kits outa the cupboard

If you need some help with the posters, let me know as I've got Photoshop and a little knowledge of it.

It may be a little picky (it is what I do for a living, sorry bad habit!) but there are a few grammatical errors which take away from the purpose of the poster-makes the info a little confusing
eg
'Club meet new members welcome'
'Bring a kit, all tools and paint available on the day we meet every month'

I'd also move the heading in the middle (Mecha Workshop Melbourne) up to the top and have the minor details in the middle

Title: Re: Mecha Workshop Melbourne
Post by: Wolfman X on February 01, 2011, 01:36:08 AM
there was only 1 airbrush machine there so i would be suprised if theres another set up. you might learn a great deal from alan since he airbrushes his kits everytime im there. as for me, ive tried to but its always been handpainting for me as ive been so used to doing since the get go.

We airbrush on site, you are free to watch but if you have an unpainted kit I can give you a lesson. You will learn more by doing it under supervision...

Victorian Hobby Center has an awesome delta setup cheap, I can fix you up...

Hello,
Besides the flooding and Metro train system dieing in the arse once again we had a fantastic turnout for the first meet of the year. With a new year means a new project so every body for snapping and planning out there kits while catching up with each others antics. This time around we had some regulars and new faces with extensive hobby experience. Everybody clicked together straight away and had a great time with like minded buddy's.

The second to the right is Raintinan/ Richard the grand-poo-bar and right to him is Andrew a Manifest committee and a founding member. He owns the Nobel Gundam. Jason is a member of Hobby Fanatic and only builds kits out of the box in the correct Mr. Hobby colors, no acceptations but is really good at it.

This is a picture of Wavehawk to tie you over.

The only abusive substance we push is plastic crack, we normally never go beyond the point of tipy so you will not have to go though that awkward stage of being the only sober person there. It's just a nice social element to the meet plus we normally move from the venue shortly as it's hot and crowded...

But seriously is there a number it anything that I would be able to text of some1 that would be there for if I manage to get down there on the day?

Name: Alan
Number: 0403651032

Everybody is free to note this number down as I already have stalkers (from posting online) and normally scare them off with my freakishly perverted fetishes. Really handy to have at large events or if a member of the club.

so how can I know which group are the right one.  I don't mind to shout " gunpla " in the train station but someone need to response it.  Or someone carry a gunpla box so I know where I should go

Got home a bit after midnight was a fantastic night. We had a turnout of 5 and started out at Victorian Hobby Center followed by a nice Japanese meal. We made our way to Minator and broke up at Swanson Street. Me and Linky marched down to J-bar Shogun and had some nice beer and plum wine.   

It was great to meet some of you in public...

Ops my bad stop the press!!!  The nerf meet has been canceled and replaced to a normal meet due to Animania also being on the same day. I was asked to postponed to a latter date this year as next month is also a issue. Connex would like to apologize for any inconvenience caused.

But if you still fancy the idea bring one anyway...

I have to apologies but will have to turn down your request. I've never felt commutable in asking for money or promoting charities especially from the club. If it happens to come up in conversation I'll bring up this forums appeal. Plus the Red Cross normally hangs out in front of this venue during drives.

Disappointing that it seems few of us here at GAF share my enthusiasm for helping in such a horrible situation but you are your own man and I won't hold it against you. I appreciate your personal donations immensely.

I've never asked anyone for a cent for this forum, but this disaster is different. I feel it is so tragic that so many people are able to distance themself from the immense sadness of the situation because it is not happening on our shores.

Anyway, thanks mate and I shan't derail your topic any further.

you shouldnt be dissapointed. theres another forum i go on to which specializes in a certain car brand ( yay hondas! <.<)
they do have a red cross appeal post made and put part of my weeks earnings there. besides what am i gonna do with it but spend on gunpla and other nonsense!!
every bit counts ^^

I appreciate there is no bad blood and had a chat with a some of the club members and decided to stick to the rule of 'no political and worldly issues' as they are all controversal and leads to personal conflict. It is not so much my personal view as I support the GAF drive but is a club decision.

Now that's done here are some photos from the Victorian Hobby Center social meet. More or less we drank, ate and talk for a few hours. We are also welcomed to come back.

she came unexpectedly and shes none of our missus ( thank goodness). shes one of the manifest committee from what i gathered
building the 1st grade 1/144 exia for the kids in kinder or something. she would only partake in building a kit if it didnt have a gun. exia has some sort of projectile wrist weapon but she doesnt know that :)
Title: Re: Mecha Workshop Melbourne
Post by: mokana_man on April 03, 2011, 10:44:27 PM
She was invited to attend and the AV manager of Manifest and the current replacement of my old Job. She was conducting research on promoting Manifest to schools and wanted to learn why we were popular amung kits. Her boyfriend is a war gammer but has little to do with us, she probly will not attende again.

We have had women at our meets before plus heaps attending our Major events including half a dozen skilled regulars. As far as I'm aware non of them are members of any forum.

I'm also glade you like my Lalah fig.

Sorry for not being able to be there on Saturday, had my sister and her daughters over at my place, and Caitlin wanted to have a go at the Xbox 360 Lego Harry Potter (Years 1-4).

But looking forward in two weeks time cause I am getting the o-sake for the group! Japanese Shopping at my best!

You are correct as normaly Linky and I apoligise for not breifing the everyone on what's going on. I'm assisting Amanda in designing a lighting rig while she is helping in keeping this club alive from the ton of political crap we were under. Amanda is extremely out going and a friend of Mecha Workshop but it seamed she didn't click well whit the kits she was working on and feel the hobby isn't her cup of tea. But I'm glad she gave it a go to understand us more.

As some of you know that I brought the Gundan RX-79 Ground Force set at VHC, well I have been painting a bit of the model (the hoover trucks) into a mid-olive green (first coat) which it will get a second coat soon but I will be needing to get some finer bushes to do a camo design on both trucks so that would look different than the usual dull green or grey colour that they are oe should be.

I will try and be at the Mecha workshop to so some more painting of this but also I will be spending time working on the event that is happening on the weekend after the Japan Festival on the 15th May (Box Hill Town Hall from 10am til 5pm). Plus need to organise this thing of a friday night eat, drink and buy mecha social that we have been having, as I need to go to Fujimart to buy the o-sakè. :)

For those who can't see it very well I am holding the ZakuII bazooka and hand painting it to a Matt black colour withthe decals already on it to give it a even old looking bazooka which came out well. will do a close up of this shortly.

Best way to make your own is to go to places like jaycar and buy a buncha gator clippers and then go to woolies and buy a pack of kebab skewers. Assembling them for uae is easy. Rubber off the clippers and whack em on the blunt end of the skewer then clamp and tighten the end section. Speaking of which i need a bigger drying block as well as more clamps.
Btw ask alan in regards with ab and compressors as he got me a very nice set

That is what I did as well. 30 odd cents per clip and come in two different sizes (small or large). Best investment ever!

sadly I have to miss out as I am having a First Aid lv2 course to do on that same weekend. good news is that I will be showing you some mechs that I just put together or in the process to. This is so I can see what they look like before I start the paintwork on them. One is a Gundam SEED Zaku.

Due to venue ventilation is not so good and we have got more than attendees walking around, the ab might not be allowed to be used, but hand painting would be fine if the ground tarps are in place. alan, myself and a few others willbe doing a venie walk through to see what we can do for the mecha workshop.

Don't forget the next event is the Model Expo at Sandown Racecourse this weekend, and the other big event for the Mecha Workshop Melbourne will be Manifest which will be held on the last weekend of August at the Melbourne Showgrounds http://www.manifest.org.au (http://www.manifest.org.au)

I just did a listing of Gunpla and found out I have got 8 Gundam SEED mecha (all in 1/144 scale)  :P

Post by: potchip on June 08, 2011, 07:01:17 PM
mmm....it's really the having to pick up the model(s) afterwards that annoys me at the Expo. I have no interest in the swap and sell either so really cannot find an excuse to return again on Monday..

Post by: TheGhostofZeon on June 08, 2011, 08:44:49 PM
You can remove your entry early if it doesn't win a prize. Only the place getters and the commended entries are required to stay on the tables until 5pm Monday.

Post by: mokana_man on June 09, 2011, 09:21:15 PM
Well this is official as it gets, people wishing to contribute to the Mecha Workshop display table can hand in there kits during the same time as competition kits are being accepted. We have two tables to fill and would love to get snapped and painted kits alike with a range of skill levels. In other words I do not want to hear the 'Oh I'm not good enough crap' we are hear for the fun of it.

Sorry for the lateness and lame reply I had a bad week looking foward to a good weekend. Bought a table cloth and have an awesome sign.

I have now been asked by a few people when the next Mecha Workshop will be as they are wanting to attend. Personally I think that we have had two weeks in a row this month and if we were going to do anything in July it would be getting ready for Manifest 2011. As well some members would be heading off to SMASH in July.

Eeeerrrrr OK we need to talk. On the way home pedo bear and Mr. Duel shared a box and one way or another he isn't standing right any more. The ball joint snaped off in the polly cap of the leg so I will make sure to fix it in a clean manner before returning him. I'm sorry about that dude...
Title: Re: Mecha Workshop Melbourne
Post by: Wavehawk on July 19, 2011, 08:15:02 PM
Don't worry. I think I can fix the problem--the Duel is using the Regen Duel extended legs, so it shoudl be an easy fix.

Are you busy Thrusday? Maybe I cna pick it up then.

Alan, good to hear the spacing problem has been fixed.  Did you pay them money for that?  THe induction you mention in your post is the OH&S for the showground right??  I complete that form and they have me a approval paper.  So i just need to bring the approval paper to the menifest right?

Wonder what went through their heads by downsizing us with such a small amount of space. Glad you got it sorted out. Was supposed to be there as well but I slept in no thanks to the major migraine I haf that night. Head was pulsating like a drummer on crack

The reason for the downgrading as such was due to the fact the Mecha Workshop is not in it's usual spot for this year's Manifest. This year Manifest has got more traders than before and this is the main reason why certain areas where moved to a newer building that Manifest hasn't used before. Don't know if size diamentions were given to the Venue Team in regards to the size the Mecha Workshop required, which could of also caused the reduction of space.

Don't forget not many Manifest people knows anything about the Melbourne Mecha Workshop and what we do.

You will have school groups during Friday plus attendees during the whole weekend so we are also hopeful to have a bumper attendance tothe Mecha Workshop including me as I do my walk around.

Post by: Wolfman X on August 21, 2011, 12:53:49 AM
mmm yeah alan did tell me the majority of whats going to happen esp with the school groups. this fixed issue should give us the neccesary space to fit the whole school groups and not having to tell them otherwise. we dont want that at all. also its gonna test me at my peak since with them teaching them basics and what not. im guessing the friday will be no airbrushing but saturday and sunday were allowed?! i got a project i would like to work on but will bring a backup kit im willing to snapfit together incase such things happen

as for display, how much space we have for such a thing coz im thinking of displaying 4 or 5
Title: Re: Mecha Workshop Melbourne
Post by: GS_Zaku2 on August 21, 2011, 01:05:57 AM
Wolfman X, sadly I do not know that answer of how much space you wil lhave for the display. Even the OH&S officer has been kept dark on this as the Venue team thought it would be good to not pass on all info. :(

I will find out on Tuesday or Wednesday the size of the display that you guys wil lbe having plus the Pocky Gundam wil lbe there too! :P
Title: Re: Mecha Workshop Melbourne
Post by: Wolfman X on August 21, 2011, 01:50:23 AM
if it involves mecha workshop it would have been handy to pass it through just so then we can prepare what space can be use simply for display and what can be used for that takai competition. though in all honesty, we will be glad to just have a table for such a thing which was plenty for us like last year

at least thats some good news. we were afraid we wouldnt have something large to display like last year.

Yes, you need to carry it with you during manifest.

Don't forget not many Manifest people knows anything about the Melbourne Mecha Workshop and what we do.

Reason I got was they lost my GLD, Amanda looked out for us and had a back up plan which was the same as mine.

I will find out on Tuesday or Wednesday the size of the display that you guys wil lbe having plus the Pocky Gundam wil lbe there too! :P
 

I stuck my foot in some collective asses and got all the answers I needed. Thanks for the offer :)

The display is across the hall because they will be buildng it during the con and need heaps of space. Next year I will spam the old GLD so this will not happen again.

Big nay same rules apply to workshops excluding the extra rules for the attendees which will be posted in the booth for people who do not know how to behave around models.

All good then. Will be mostly around the spraying area. Done with handpainting :)
Having said that, most of the parts which I will need to ginsan ill wont work on so that those whoare looking and want to learn can see me spray up other parts. I can gladly teach em what I know from what I learnt from you. Btw how many compressors we got for the 3 days?

Only I and Richard are to bring electricals for red tape resons which sucks.

I wouldn't say it is an issue of trust or doing something dishonestly. She has foolishly put way too much on her plate and is making poor judgement on what she should be focusing on. It is moc's fault allowing her to take on that much responsibility. as a group we spend too much time rapping our selfs in red tape and should share the work load.

I do not think the activity hall is a good lay out even if the theme is is video game next level what ever. How are things bigger and better when all workshop spaces are smaller?

I know its in wrong place but what the hack....

I was looking at my backlog today and realized that I have several kits that I will realistically never get too,

MG Unicorn Gundam HD color+MS cage Kit

Price: Pick Up in Melbourne $90
Delivery: Anything in Aust $110

I was going to start on him few month back, but changed my mind, most of the runner had taken out of the plastic wrapped, some of them its still in plastic wrap, Unbuild! all pieces still intact with runner.

Bring them to the meet and you might be able to flogg it there. I can't see why we shouldn't use the club as a swap sell as long as it is at a reasonable price.

I was in Ozanimart on Monday cause I had some spare time after having a volunteers meeting for the Japanese Summer Festival. I will most likely be there on Friday too. Oh got to see a few kits at Ozanimart and lack of funds managed me not to buy anything.

Check Dalong. Should be scans on there.
Title: Re: Mecha Workshop Melbourne
Post by: Wavehawk on January 25, 2012, 09:33:20 PM
Managed to copy scans, but as my printer has gone dead, I was hopign someone who'll turn up at MechWorkshop will have one or allow me to photocopy theirs for a hardcopy.. :( I'll try to see if I can get to an Officeworks tomorrow to have it printed out (hopefully not too costly) as my new job doesn't give me a lot of time to move around and I'm usually half-dead during weekends...

This isn't the first time this has happened. I usually get by with scans online for HG kits, but for the Unicorn I'll need the actual printout while working on the kit. And since I've already pestered Bandai for a new hardcopy of the MG Zetaplus kit a year or two back, there goes my one freebie from them... :(

Alan,

We understand that you have been very busy at work due to short on staff members to do the tasks required that is okay. If needed let us know ans we can help you out on the Mecha Workshop side, after all when it comes to Manifest we need to know what we are going to do! like charge money to those who want to steal our tools! :P

June 15 boys and girls at VHC, last one for the year or longer. So call in sick/ quit your job burn down your office anythin to get here. We will party like it's 0079.

I'm also thinking about selling tools so people starting out can keep going at home. I mean if I was an attendee and thought this was manifest gear I would pitch it. Plus it's going to a good cause over sitting in a tub months on end.

If you can't find your way from the train station call Alan on 0403651032 then someone will pick you up. Please feel free to bring in your favorite  tools, kit your working on or a finished kit to show off. Don't forget you can always buy a kit off us to work on the day...



Alan,

We understand that you have been very busy at work due to short on staff members to do the tasks required that is okay. If needed let us know ans we can help you out on the Mecha Workshop side, after all when it comes to Manifest we need to know what we are going to do! like charge money to those who want to steal our tools! :P

Could you please call me in the next two days regarding a little task I need done for the club if you are free to do so (if not wolfman will do). would be a massive amount of help...

Thank you all who helped at Mecha Workshop @ Manifest here is the report I sent to the Manifest committee. Also pic's will be posted tomorrow...

Quote
Mecha Workshop

Biggest and best year yet we had record numbers of attendees. The sponcers were extremely happy and want to invest more resources into us. Bandai said after leaving china we are really good outside Hong Kong and Japan (he bought us lunch). 80% of kits were given away/ sold by Sunday 2pm with just enough resources.

GOOD:
Always outsourcing volunteers from the monthly club and managing our own HR needs had all staff happy and well rested between shifts. Myself (Friday Saturday) and another important individual (Sunday) fell ill had no impack as the others were trained to keep the area running.
The space was perfect with all power tables and seats more then enough with heaps of exposure. The VG area had no impact on us like last year. Shop lifting of stock and tools were at a all time low as tables were not cluttered.

According to our records we seated around 600 attendees who built at least 1 kit or started a larger kit.
no more ligers

BAD:
No major incidents reported

Conclusion:
The crew requests the exact same space and requirements as this year. We have space to expand attendee numbers if we  work with our sponcer to change the free kit and have 600-ish units over 480. Also I'm interested in having a ball jointed doll display

Also special thanks to Helen Amanda and Daniel

Report edited to remove my name/ rants and other peoples last name at end of report. I like to be transparent with you guys :)

Possibly not Sept, but maybe October. And PLEASE don't make it between Oct 19-31 as I am either working or going to a seminar or cleaning the damn house. Too much stuff planned for me in advance that I can't cancel (if it was just one I could but not all of this stuff flat-chat)

I like glue kits. I've only made one gunpla myself, an old zaku I kit. i'm used to working with vinyl models... but that was when i was very young, did a bunch of aliens models and a couple of guyver models.

Are u actually back down under now alan or still in the land of the rising sun?

Yeah I'm back

It's actually his evil twin.

If I had a clone of my self would I sleep with me? Would this be incest or wanking? Would one really be more evil then the other? Is this possible? Does angry Wavehawk regret this?

Things at manifest is complicated, I would deal with it if I was being paid danger money as the BS has reached carcinogenic levels. Things are settling down and should be safe by the next meet. I do apologize but can't predict politics.

Attn: All Mecha Workshop Melbourne members and friends.

A lot has happened against our interests during the Manifest workshop 17-18th August with no clear official record or actions issued to us. A lot of rumors are spreading across word of mouth and online about a series of incidences involving us. It is important for everybody sake not to feed public discussions no matter what until the matter is put to rest. After mediation talks I will inform you all our official movements and standing.

Richard and I would like to thank all workshop staff and friends on the day for your support and standing behind us during our hardest times. This means so much to us we are proud to fight for our community.
 
Please note:
1) Richard is well most importantly.
2) We will hold a open discussion meeting within 2 weeks from now (most likely a Saturday afternoon in city) the topic will be a debrief and our future movements. Everybody is entitled to input in what ever decision will be made.   
3) Dissolving/ burning of bridges will not be an option

We are a transparent organization but again until this is resolved for our image lets keep public/social network opinions quite until the meeting. Also please do not lash out or attack any parties involved even if we are receiving it. The record will be set straight in due time I promise you. A lot of individuals and business have high respect for our work and love for the hobby in including Bandai.



Thank you
Alan Britten

Attn: Mecha Workshop friends and members

A quote from Richard:
"The Chinese charter for disaster contains the charter for opportunity."

This weekend Richard Chris and I attended Armageddon as staff of Animasia. We ran a small workshop giving out kits across 3 tables over 2 days giving away 280 kits. The atmosphere was amazing the convention, staff and security were friendly and we walked away ecstatic. A big shout out to Chris for being super helpful.

This weekend we are looking forwarded to attending our first meeting at Altona which is also our true first day of total independence as a club. Our goal is a first impression which I have been working hard on with the Men's Shed. They are very excited to receive us into there community and so far showing us grand hospitality and a welcome letter in the local news letter.

I would like to return the favor in our strong support of our hobby and passion though our action on our first day. I do not normally ask for much and will not make a habit of it.
-Please bring the yearly member ship fee of $30 exact change if this is a problem message me and I will sort you out.
-If humanly possible rock up as closely on time as possible so we can all fill out the form and do the induction together. Try to bring ID if possible.
-This one is hard for me so good polite behavior and language to the locals and host. They are as crass and cultured as us but are un familiar with our interests. Lets leave the wifus and mecha musume futaries at home. I'm looking at you Gogg!
-Bring a good finished model for display so we can show what we are capable of.
-Bring tools and a project to entertained our selves for the day. Richard and I will not be bringing much and I have nothing stored there yet.
-Most important bring on the fun as we usually do!
I promised at least 7 on the day, not to force anybody but lets be in full numbers I know we all want to see each other as soon as possible.

I have high expectations for this venue, it is a beautiful beach front site with a awesome colonial and military history attached to it. For now we have little in the way of space and storage but as we progress and grow so will our use of the venue. My expectations is to keep a few tubs for parts and paint, and a permanent set up airbrush booth and 3D printer and workshops once a fortnight. We will have the dinner hall which can sit around 20 people at a push.

I am excited and am looking forward to seeing everybody. Lets make this place our new home.


Thank you for your support,

Finally I am back with nearly a 2 year no comment but most of you would of seen me during at Manifest, Armageddon and Supanova. Don't know if I will be able to attend the next mecha workshop and yes I am starting to build a backlog of Zakus and other mecha to build! As you guys would know that Manifest is dead (reasons I am not going to go into as I have got more intel on it than most Mecha Workshop members would know) but there is supposed to be 3 new Anime Conventions trying to start up.

Please note that I am not going to get involved with any of them cause of what burnout (life-draining) issues from Manifest and I can see will be dragged into some of these three events (if they do run). Anyway great to see you guys at Supanova and yeah things should of been done better and my boss should of told you guys prior of what they would like you to do if it's possible. But none of them build Gunpla before so they have no idea.

Quote
He's gonna take you back to the past
To build the ishty kits that suck ass

He'd rather have...a Chorizo
with some milk white coat poured into his rear

He'd rather take...a vienna sausage
oiled up with gunk and shoved up his nose

He's the angriest builder you ever heard
He's the angry Bandai Nerd
He's the angry Hobby Japan Nerd
He's the angry Gunpla Nerd

BTW if James Rolfe AKA the AVGN hears about this, nobody knows me, got it? NOBODY HERE KNOWS ME.

16 May meet kind of got derailed as Gundam Universe was closed (car accident involved). The rest of us just spent the rest of the afternoon raiding other shops for kits. So while not the best at least it wasn't a wasted day for some of us. (why only on days I don't need to turn up to work and CAN make it to the workshops do things like this happen?)

Hopefully things will be up and running next meet.

I'll try to turn up on 25 Jul, but may be very late. If I don';t turn up, watch the news as I may have already killed a large number of co-workers by then.

A reminder to all Hobsons Bay Men's Shed Mecha Workshop members. We will be returning to our Altona site August 22nd and all of our membership fees are due at our first meeting at $30. Also we will be doing a massive BBQ on the day so bring something to cook or bring $5 to pitch in. Last but not least a massive thank you to Viet of Gundam Universe for looking after us while the shed has been closed. We will be sure to visit shortly.
