Hi there,

Our names are Derick and Robert. Together we have been modeling Gundam kits for around 20 years.

Around 20 years ago, Derick started with making the typical model planes and tanks, but it wasn't until he saw the TV show Robotech and Gundam that he was introduced to these wonderful robot kits. They were a thing to be marveled at, and here, stood these robots lived only in fictional the fictional world. Something about these kits which allowed me to truly express himself and let his imagination run wild appealed to him. thus He changed from traditional model kits to these wonderful robot kits.

Robert's story starts in 2004 when he saw the first Gundam series aired on N. American TV, and was hooked ever since. Then in an anime convention he met Derick where they both shared their passion for this great TV series. From there a great friendship in building Gundams was formed.

We created this hub page to be a collection reviews of the wonderful robot model kits so that hobbyist and Gunpla enthusiasts can be aware of it's pricing and value before spending their hard earned cash on these kits. We currently write reviews on a website we Moderate and manage called Plamocon.com, and are currently one of the very few reviews in english.

So on to a brief history of these great kits called Gundam. They are produced in Japan by Bandai. These model kits have been around for more than 30 years starting in Japan!

The word Gunpla is an amalgamation of two words: Gundam and Plastic. The Japanese have shorten Gundam to Gun, and Plastic to Pla, and thus the catch phrase Gunpla was born.

Many professional and amateur modellers in Asia have been enjoying these kits, and it wasn't until recently that these model kits were introduced to the North American Market or rather the english speaking market in the past decade, from the popular Anime series Gundam Wing. Since then many other series such as Gundam seed and G Gundam have begun airing the airwaves of National TV, and thus began the prominence of Gunpla model kits in North America.

These model kits are great for modellers of all backgrounds and levels. They also make excellent gifts for children of all ages, wait, we take that back, ages 6 and up, and what child/teenager does not like robots?(well the boys anyways)

If you are a modeller hobbyist, you can use techniques that have been used in armor tank building to make them look weathered and rusted, or even car and airplane techniques to make them look shiny or war ready. The only limit is your imagination.
