On the subject of models, I will simply and quickly point out that I
attempted to point the person in the direction of
rec.arts.anime.models, where the modeling discussion of today would
have been more relevant. That said, I still do feel that while not
all Gundam fans are modelers, the vast preponderance of them are.
Models are rather synonymous with Gundam, and I for one, have a hard
time imagining a Gundam mailing list that ignores the modeling aspect
of Gundam.
