Hello and welcome to the Layman's Gunpla Guide!
A bit about myself. I, like many Americans, came to know Gundam through Gundam Wing when it aired on Cartoon Network during the 90's. From there, unlike many Americans, found my way to the other series in the franchise and have been a fan ever since. I'm not quite sure when I started with Gunpla but it followed shortly after. Many of my early kits were built by physically twisting and ripping pieces from the runners (shudder) before I progressed toward cutting and sanding. Interest in the hobby faded away through college but returned not long after. Getting into it and learning more than I had ever known about putting together models and Gunpla I thought it would be beneficial to put together a guide built from lessons learned. Thus, the Layman's Gunpla Guide was born.
