My first was the original 1/100 Gundam, what a mistake! Two more
disastrous mecha kits (a Dougram and another forgotten mech) after that
and I sworn off mecha kits completely. Went to miitary kits and (almost)
never come back. I think it was 15 or 16 years before I built another
mecha, the first kit that brought me back to Gunpla is 08MST Gouf Custom.
But I used 2 crappy Arii Valkyries and a Musai to built up some skills
before I took on Gouf.

Coming from an artist like you, it makes me feel less guilty about being
lazy on my kits. :)
