I proudly admit that I am a child of the Ď80s, and that growing up my favourite things were giant robots. It didnít matter to me if they were Transformers, GoBots or piloted mecha from cool shows like Robotech or Voltron. Big robots = awesome. Thatís true math.

Since growing up kinda sucks, I think I decided not to bother, and I still love robots today! However, thereís something about Ď80s robots and Ď80s mech anime that just grab me and wonít let go. The art style, the character designs and the slightly looser constraints on what was allowed in terms of mech design really combine to make an irresistible product.

Thatís why I was so excited to not only get to watch Metal Armour Dragonar (albeit with questionable subs), but to get my hands on pretty much every 1/144 kit from the series! The first one I built was the Schwalg, an enemy flying mech known, appropriately, as a Flug Armor.

Check it out, and see why these simple but awesome kits are some of my prized possessions!

Check out Zombster. They used to have build meets, not sure if they still do.

Hi, I was indeed referring the mesh, because again it just look amazing.

And for me the biggest gunpla frustration has to be the nubmarks. I absolutely hate cleaning nubmarks. I either clean them with my hobby knife or I just sand them down when I feel way too tired of nubmarks.

Hi Duckie,

I ended up reading that first line twice thinking 'wow, Duckie has really high standards.' Ha ha, thanks.

Are you referring to the areas around the mesh? If so, I'll put together a tutorial for that on my blog and link it back here.  I do recommend giving painting a shot! It's very rewarding.

Can you do me a favour and share what is your biggest Gunpla frustration? I'm looking for possible blog topics.
