Soooo.... Supanova got me hooked
« on: November 07, 2011, 09:03:59 PM »

Hi,

I attended Supanova 2011 and saw the Gunpla stand.  I bought a couple (1/144 Beargguy and 1/144 Justice Gundam) then my mate I was there with pointed out that there was a free workshop.  I decided it might be a good idea to see if I enjoy building what I had just bought. The workshop was great and turns out I love building (I want to paint too, but since i have no experience at painting it might have to wait for a bit).  After one day I had built Beargguy (with my son's "help") and I am eyeing off the Justice Gundam trying to see how long I can hold off opening the box. 

I have not ever built any sort of models.  No Warhammer or anything like that.  I am an MMO and cartoon kinda geek.  I live just outside Brisbane in QLD.

So basically I am here and looking forward to interacting with people and learning as much as I can about this awesome hobby.

Thanks

Epimethius
