There are two events happening this weekend!

On Saturday, October 3, 2015 International Plastic Modeler’s Society (IPMS) Orange County is holding their annual contest. There are usually about 400-500 models entered into this competition each year. Back in 2003, this was also the first live competition I had ever entered, and I got a 3rd place for a MG Z’Gok. This was the start of my interest in model competition that lead to the eventual creation of SCGMC!

Even back in 2003, this club had a Gundam category under the scifi category umbrella. Its definitely a good competition to check out and possibly get some inspiration for your gunpla projects from all the military, aircraft, and car models.

The other event happening this weekend is on Sunday, October 4, 2015. RoboToyFest! They had an event earlier in the year and held a Gundam Model competition that they are also holding this weekend. Those Gundam Guys will be there to judge the competition again.

This weekend is a great opportunity to check out and enter some model Southern California model competition. And it could be some great inspiration to help give you that last push to finish your projects for SCGMC 2015! A bunch of Those Gundam Guys are going to be at these events so come say hi to us!

Last weekend was IPMS OC’s annual OrangeCon event. A group of Those Gundam Guys went and pretty much ruled the Gundam category. One of the tank builders did make the 1/35 scale Hovertank from 8thMS Team, very nicely done. Angel picked up Third place with his Unicorn, I grabbed a Second for my Efreet Custom, and Mike, one of the newer guys to our build gatherings picked up 1st for his Patchwork Sazabi. Which also picked up Best Sci-fi, and with the running of Best of Show, was the one of two kits battling for that award, only getting inched out by Sean’s incredibly well built ship (not a ship guy so, I forgot the name). Not too bad for the new guy who picked up airbrushing from attending last year’s SCGMC.

Which is the perfect segue into the little video I made to help promote the event that is a little less than a month away.
