  4. The latest announcement, we have some vendors. http://thosegundamguys.org/2011/07/17/vendors-at-scgmc/ Robot4Less AND TatsuHobby will be vending at SCGMC, so you guys can get your plastic gunpla and resin gunpla fixes. Oh yeah, for the Northern California folks, TatsuHobby is holding a contest for you guys, full rules and details are here: http://tatsuhobby.com/webstore/index.php?main_page=page&id=28
  5. The general awards for the contest came today, check it out: http://thosegundamguys.org/2011/07/05/scgmc-trophies/
  6. There's always the option of coming down here for a day trip? Ok, 2 day trip I guess. Again, we're hoping that this is successful, tons of models and such especially in our niche subject of model building. Sci-fi is already niche enough. But if a show like wonderfest in KY does what it does for garage kits and figure modeling; there's hope for this show to do the same with gunpla and other anime mecha models.
  7. 1st annual Southern California Gundam Model Competition presented by http://thosegundamguys.org is set for Saturday, November 12, 2011 at the Fullerton Holiday Inn. Full details are here: http://thosegundamguys.org/southern-california-gundam-model-competition/ We have open categories for all things mecha and anime related. So there will definitely be some Macross Representation. I was chatting with an old friend of mine from HS over at Frank & Sons and he told me that I should post this information here. So save the date, and if you guys know fellow modelers that are interested in the event, please help spread the word.
  8. Hi, this may better answer your question: http://www.gamerabaenre.com/panel_line_wash.htm And there is a larger scaled version of the video from the front page. Hope this is helpful.
  9. I held a workshop that focused on building mecha and resin figure kits. It was held on 3 of the 4 days of the con. There was also a model contest, a little lacking in the mecha department. I didn't get to spend too much time in the exhibit hall, too busy running around between the damn art show and the workshop rooms. Only got to take pictures of folks while I was between places, so sorry for the lack of hotties. Next year AX will be at LACC.
  10. I had fun. Here are my pictures and little con review: http://gamerabaenre.com/ax_2007.htm
  11. Update: Got the times and location for the model building workshop that I'm presenting: "Gundam Models & Resin Building Seminar: Basics" Friday, June 29 Workshops 1 (LBCC 104C) 1:30 PM - 3:30 PM "Gundam Models & Resin Building Seminar: Advanced Techniques" Saturday, June 30 Workshops 2 (LBCC 103) 3:30 PM - 5:30 PM "Gundam Models & Resin Building Seminar: Start to Finish" Sunday, July 1 Workshops 2 (LBCC 103) 1:30 PM - 3:30 PM
  12. Anime Expo June 29 - July 2 Long Beach Convention Center Long Beach California I'm trying to help promote the model contest this year to get more participation, so if you're local or hell, if you're going to AX and you build models, bring something and enter: http://www.anime-expo.org/?q=professional/...t/model_contest Additionally, I hosted a Gunpla/Resin Figure building workshop/panel/seminar thingy last year at AX and I will be doing this again this year. The schedules have not come out yet, but I have gotten confirmation that my presentation is on the schedule. I'll update this thread when I get more information.
  13. I thought was pretty cool. The same guy built the Tachikoma reading the magazine. Granted, it's no Jesus statue built entirely out of chocolate, but pretty impressive stuff regardless
  14. Ok, decided to post this here for a few reasons. I met someone from MW over there this past weekend, Nick. There where two Macross kits in the contest. And I have a picture of the vice con chair from the event dressed as Max Sterling next to Mari. http://www.gamerabaenre.com/tekkoshocon07.htm Enjoy!
