June 23, 2007: Went down to San Diego today to participate in IPMS San Diego's yearly competition. I was invited
down by a fellow gundam modeler. Unfortunately, he was unable to bring a kit to compete with. The other guy that comes up to Orangecon
every year got to the event late and was unable to enter his three gunpla kits. There was another fellow that hails from LA who primarily does
armor kits but recently started on building gunpla. He brought a Dom and Kampfer that he added some rivets and accent beads. Cool stuff.
Looks like I have a couple of people who will be coming up for the nations and bringing gunpla kits, so this looks promising for a nice little
gunpla show of force at the nationals. Time for the gunpla army show some strength. Time to get more folks to bring gundam to the nations.
Lastly, I was able to win second place in the Misc. category for my dark elf and first in the scifi(figures) - they split the sci fi into
figures and vehicles, so the gunpla kits were labeled "figures". It would have been great of James and Robert were able to enter their gunpla
kit, then it'd really merit a "Gundam" category under the Sci-Fi umbrella.
Another fun convention to go to that's a local event. Will be going again
