Just wanted to post on the front page that the June Build Gathering is coming up this Saturday June 11th at Gamerabaenre’s house in Placentia, California. Get more information, including how to get on the email list that announces the monthly gatherings at Gamerabaenre’s forum.

April 2011 Model Build Gathering

I know a few of us has picked up the latest May edition of Dengeki with the Wagtail conversion for the RGM-79C HGUC kit, so there may be a couple of those on the work benches. Up for discussion will be the SCGMC, we still need to make up fliers, and nail down some target areas for advertising our event. The sooner we start marketing this, the better. Not going to rely on forums and the online masses. We’ve gotta hit the local colleges and unis, local gunpla selling hobby shops, F&S, and just start getting some word out.
