Just a thought..
To All Gundam modelers out there,
We don't play with toys, what we build are not toys rather they are Fictional Models designed to be scaled down representations of the mechanics that are present in the Anime. They do look like toys to the usual people but the way I see it, there isn't much difference between GunPla, real life Scale Model kits(Airplanes, Armor, Automobiles) and business dioramas like the ones you see on malls near real-estate booths. A thing in common about them is that building them is serious business. A hobby which requires the patience of a teacher, keenness of an engineer, precision of a doctor and imagination of an artist or a philosopher. That is what our hobby is about for me.
