Welcome to the Gundam Australia Forum!
If you feel so inclined, here is a little bit about who we are and what we do, along with a few simple guide lines to keep the place running smoothly.Who we are:
We are the first and original Australian Gundam and Gunpla forum run by and for Australian Gundam and Gunpla enthusiasts. Founded in 2007 at the old evilcow site, we have since migrated to our own domain. Data recovery from the old forum is ongoing, but the friendly and helpful atmosphere fostered by our many valued members remains the same.
Here you will find a wealth of information at your disposal and hopefully a valuable and enjoyable learning experience. We are proud to have amongst our members highly skilled and experienced respected Gunpla modelers and writers the world over who have in the past been only too happy to help out new modelers with their questions.
Our mission statement has always been simple - to welcome enthusiasts both locally and abroad regardless of skill level, level of interest, or commitment, and to provide an open and free platform for discussion and sharing ideas and information relating to Gundam and Gunpla, whilst promoting and encouraging the hobby in our local communities as well as online.What we do:
Welcome people from all places around Australia and the world
Welcome all gunpla and gundam fans, regardless of skill level, degree of interest, age, gender etc
Provide a platform for the free exchange of information and ideas relating to Gundam/Gunpla locally and abroad
Share tips, techniques, news, events, and info
Support and contribute to the Gunpla community, both locally and onlineWhat we do not do:
Talk about religion or politics
Shun people for their skill or effort level
Operate multiple accounts
Regarding bootleg kits:
We prefer it if you don't post them, thanks. We are of the belief that by buying bootleg kits you are supporting bootleggers who hurt the hobby which we all share.
We've always tried to run a pretty relaxed show and it's never really got out of hand. We appreciate that you understand that we give you all a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and so long as everyone is civil and pleasant there should be no need for any stricter policy. You should also be aware that talking about unofficial products is typically frowned upon and we prefer that you do not post links to torrents or illegitimate/unlicensed content in most circumstances. Play nice and we can all have cake.
Welcome to Gundam Australia. We hope that you enjoy your time here and we look forward to your contribution to the community, no matter the size.
Please take the time to introduce yourself here
. We look forward to sharing the hobby together!
If you are looking for advice about what kit to buy please take a look at the R&D section. It has information on a number of kits in various scales with pictures of the box & contents as well as forum members comments on the model and how it went together. Some entries also included pictures of the finished kit. Here
