Finally, would you please describe how you were introduced to Gundam and what
lead to building your first model? I was in a comicbook store, getting
my weekly fix of the X-men, when I notice this really cool model, the
Tekkaman Blade (1/8 scale). I bought it, put it together, and loved it so
much I had to go back and get another. They didn't have any Tekkaman models
left, but they did have some new kits from another series, called Gundam. So
I bought a Neo Gundam, and I just couldn't get enough. Later, when I was in
New York, I happened by some Gundam LDs. Of course I had to get those, just
to see what Gundam was all about. And that's just the beginning ... as later
on, I found the web, and followed the Gundam trail to Hobby Link Japan.
