Gundam Eclipse Member Spotlight: Derringer
Interviewer: Autobot (September 2014)

Introduction
1) How did you come up with your tag (Derringer)?

This specific handle I got from Resident Evil. It’s a weapon that allows you to one shot kill a shark boss fight in the first game.

2) What/who introduced/inspired you to start Gunpla (or plastic models in general)? Any influential modelers that you really look up to?

Got introduced to it through the Wing boom in 2000. I had been tinkering around with model aircraft prior, but Gundam really got me into building. I learned about techniques lurking on ChildOfMecha, GameraBaenre.com, Fichtenfoo, Hobbyfanatics, and some Singaporean/Malaysian and Fillipino Gundam model sites. I still look up to the individuals who were at ChildofMecha back then and I still frequent those places.

3) How did you get into the gunpla business and work with what you love to earn a living?

I just blindly applied at Bluefin’s booth during Anime Expo in 2010 looking for a temporary job. I didn’t know at the time they were the official U.S. distributor, I just thought they were a big Gundam booth. A college friend of mine at the show with me had suggested I apply, and so I did. I sent in my resume, not really expecting anything and assuming it wouldn’t be looked at. I got hired immediately. I was surprised because I didn’t even get a chance to tell any of my references that I had applied (and I’m constantly being berated for that now). My first full day of work was driving a van of stuff to San Diego Comic-Con. I’ve been involved on and off since then. My main focus within Bluefin right now is actually less GunPla related and more market research for various JP media properties. I’m heavily involved with product planning for the figure divisions of Bandai Tamashii Nations and Bandai Shokugan more than GunPla.

My current duties are split between brand management of the different manufacturers and Bandai divisions we carry and also marketing and promotion of those either on behalf of the manufacturer or in assisting with stores. The largest project right now is getting displays set up in close to 200 Barnes and Noble stores, up from the 20 or so from last year. So these new fixtures should be going up this week.

Posted Image

Close to 500 Barnes and Noble stores currently carry GunPla on their shelves, with larger expansion to come next year in the number of different products. For stores like Barnes and Noble and others that are not necessarily familiar with the characters, but realize its selling potential we assist them in selecting product to carry given that the Gundam model catalog is close to 2000 different kits which makes it quite difficult for any retailer to carry. We're trying to figure out the logistics for a GunPla workshop type event in Barnes and Noble also. I want to see if we can get some sort of toolset into Barnes and Noble next year. For a larger scale, we are trying to get some sort of very large Gundam statue into the U.S. Not the 1/1 of course, but something comparable for the 35th anniversary of Gunpla.

Those of you attending NYCC 2014 come drop by our booth 1612 for the GunPla Builders World Cup and a sneak peek at the upcoming ??????? kit that will be on display!


4) Any other interest/hobbies besides Gunpla?

I play the piano, haven’t done it for a while though. I don’t like playing for others, just myself. I do watch a lot of anime and read a lot of manga.

5) What's your favorite animation/robot design/videogame?

I like the original Gundam series. I don’t have a favorite design, but I do like a number of them from Gundam X, ZZ, Wing.

6) How do you feel about the direction the hobby is heading? What do you like to see?

GunPla is more accessible than it was ever before and there are new fans being created every day. It’s important we kindle those flames of passion and interest so that they stick around. I’m more interested in seeing some more practical mechanical detail in GunPla such as maintenance hatches and sliding panels.

Posted Image

7) Would you like to introduce more people getting into this hobby? the forum?

Yes I am always interested introducing new people to GunPla and also teaching techniques.

8) Do you like and enjoy entering a contest/competition? What do you like the most about it?

I do enjoy model contests. When there is a focus on a certain theme or goal or category it makes sure I only do things necessary to meet criteria instead of being open to every idea I can think of for my leisure builds. Unfortunately I’m involved in a lot of the organization, judging, and prize allotments for the official U.S. Gundam model-centric ones and I usually recluse myself from entering. I wish I could try Orangecon, which is local to me and a general model contest, but I always am out of town when it’s happening.

9) Any of your hobby skills that you obtain were applicable to yourself in real life/work?

I guess I’m pretty used to things not happening as they should and just letting things be.

10) Most memorable build?

Posted Image

The Airmaster/Starscream that’s in my avatar was pretty fun. Used a lot of external things like the computer PSU molex plugs for the shoulder mounted cannons. There’s lots of minor things on it like neck extensions, crudely done decepticon markings, reshaping of the forearms. It’s not my best build, and I’d like to re do it. I have plans for a Thundercracker or Skywarp.

11) Was there a build that you think you messed up and wanted to throw it away? What did you end up doing?

I’ve been working on and off on a MG F91 Harrison ver since 2008 or so. Every time I’ve worked on it, something’s broken or gone missing in the period where I don’t touch it. As of now, I don’t like the way the blue and yellow look on the kit so I have opted to strip it when I get the chance. I’ve also lost some of the rear leg thruster flaps. Still working on I, will get finish it eventually.

Posted Image

12) How did you stumble on the GE?

I stumbled upon GE looking for more active Gundam model boards. ChildofMecha had disappeared at the time, Fichtenfoo no longer had a large mecha following for existing Japanese IPs, focusing more on scratch-build stuff, Hobby Fanatics had slowed down.

Current Build Experience
14) What are you currently building?

I am currently building some sort of Tallgeese 3 using the MG Tallgeese as a base and also an F91

13) How do you like the build so far and why did you make any modifications (if any)? Influences, etc? Tried something new compared to previous builds?

It seems pretty simple, but because I want my kit not to get lost in the sea of other Tallgeese 3 using MG Tallgeese that are already out there I have to approach it a bit differently. As opposed to making it 100% accurate to the lineart I want to do some additional things to it whether that be additional details or reshaping of certain portions. I’m actually doing the one chest vent configuration that the Tallgeese 3 is supposed to have, as well as the pop out energy generator on the mega rifle.

14) Toughest challenge(s) in the build?

I’m fairly terrible with faces, I’m trying to get that sort of bird beak look that was seen in one scene of the EW OVA/movie. I think Keita is the only modeler I’ve seen done a tallgeese with that different face.

15) Were there changes that had to be made midway in the build?

I’ve redone the face a total of 8 times already, not having been satisfied with its look and having difficulty recreating its appearance.

Posted Image

16) Do you recommend what you build/did to others and what level of experience/age group do you think is required to reproduce similar work?

No I don’t recommend it because then my ideas aren’t so original anymore. I don’t think age has anything to do with it. Just whether or not you are dedicated to your goals and willing to keep going.

17) Like your results so far? if you have an opportunity to redo certain parts or steps, what parts/steps do you want to do differently? or leave it the same?

Nope don’t like results because what originally started as a simple conversion has taken far too long. Outside of just slapping on the old HG 1/100 parts onto the MG kit without accounting for their different level of detail and proportions, I don’t see how I could do this without feeling I half-heartedly did it.

18) Something new you want to try on your next build? Something new to learn?

There are some Gundam wing fanart designs based around the Madoka Magika characters I wish to try. Also I do want to try spotted camouflage.


19) Any kits that you dream of having, even though no manufacturer has made one yet?

I would like to build a VF-4 that's not some incredibly obscure hard to get garage kit.

20) Any news on upcoming releases for the rest of 2014?

There's a couple of high profile announcements coming soon near the end of September that's going to make for a real perfect December for fans!

Final Thought
21) If you could offer one piece of advice to someone starting out with the hobby, what would that be?

Just read and look at pictures. Many people have already asked the same questions you have. Many people have already answered the same questions you have. Many people have done the same trial and error for methods. Do some digging on message boards, their use as a repository for questions and answers can help you.

Gundam Eclipse Member Spotlight: eire
Interviewer: Autobot (August 2014)

Posted Image

Posted Image

Introduction
1) How did you come up with your tag (eire)?

It is funny because many people often pronounce it as eerie (ear – e) which means strange, spooky, and creepy: really not what I’m going for! Eire is the Irish name for the island that they inhabit (Ireland). It is pronounced in the same way that many would say the word “era” (air – uh). I spent a bit of time in Ireland finishing my schooling, have quite a bit of heritage from that country, and feel a strong connection to it. When coming up with a forum tag, eire was a short, interesting word that would probably be unclaimed. It really has no relationship to modeling, robots, Gundam, or mecha in general.

Posted Image

2) Real occupation and residence?

I live in Alaska, the land of the midnight sun. Right now it is summer and there is very little darkness, which provides a lot of time to build models. I am an elementary teacher at a public school.

Posted Image

3) What/who introduced/inspired you to start Gunpla (or plastic models in general)? Any influential modelers that you really look up to?

I grew up building and painting fighter jet and car models with my dad and brothers in small-town Montana. My favorite plane was (maybe still is) the A-10 Warthog, so I loved building different versions of that plane, painting them up in camo, and hanging them from the ceiling in an intimidating attack stances. That was a time where you could find models almost anywhere that toys were sold: drug stores, department stores, grocery stores, etc. Kits were ubiquitous and cheap! We had only a few TV channels, so we weren’t exposed to anime or Japanese culture really, but when I was 12, I found a Robotech model that was completely amazing at a hobby shop in a larger town. I remember building it and then cutting the box down to the front illustration and taping it onto the inside of my desk at school (the desk tops lifted up). I was so stoked on it! Many, many years later, my son was getting into building Legos a lot, and I was looking around for other building type activities that we could do together. I had long since stopped building models, but I remembered that Robotech kit and started searching out mech models to see if my son could handle building them. My local model shop had some Gundam kits, which wasn’t really what I was looking for, but I ended up picking up an HG kit and a really old Wing kit: the 1/144 Vayeate. Those builds pretty much hooked me, and I’ve been building non-stop since.

I am constantly scouring life and the internet for inspiration and motivation for modeling. I’m always impressed by the work of GE members when it comes to Gundam, FSS, and anime kits. Julius Lim is an extremely impressive and versatile modeler that inspires me. There is a guy that goes by the name of uzazo (tract+) that does amazing figures and Ma.k stuff. Klav, Lin.k, Jason Eaton, and Brian Krueger are also Ma.k builders that inspire me to spend time modeling. Lastly, there are a few guys that frequent mech model forums such as SingleMedia,, Ogami, Tigrillo, and J. Twobad (just to name a few) that push me to get back to the workbench.


Posted Image

4) Any other interest/hobbies besides Gunpla?

I am a voracious reader, so when I don’t feel like building, I’m often doing that. Hiking and camping are also activities that I’m often involved in.

Posted Image

5) What's your favorite animation/robot design/videogame?

My favorite anime is Ergo Proxy. A lot going on there! I love the animation style. As far as robot design, Kow Yokoyama is a favorite designer as well as Kobayashi Makoto. Pretty much anything those fellows design tickles my fancy.

Posted Image

6) How long have you been building Gunpla/when did you start?

Been building gunpla and mechs seriously and continuously for about 5 years.

Posted Image

7) How do you feel about the direction the hobby is heading? What do you like to see?

I think it is a pretty good time to be a builder of robot-related obscure model kits. There are so many sources for this stuff now, and between resin, plastic, and other materials, the span of available subject matter is huge! It seems that there has been a bit of resurgence in availability in the US with companies like Barnes and Noble carrying Gundam MG and HG kits in store.

My hope is that a new generation of builders are locating these models and giving them a try. Modeling in general seems to be becoming more and more of a niche activity in the US, and I hope to see it continue on instead of die out. On visits to my local hobby store, the shop areas containing RC vehicles, Warhammer materials, and figures/toys are usually very populated, while the modeling section is usually just me and an 80 year old fellow scouting model train goods.

I have really liked to see Bandai creating HGUC kits for obscure MS (often resurrected through the Unicorn series). A few years ago, who would have imagined ZSSA, Gallus, Zogok, and Doven Wolf in official plastic kit form? It has also been excellent to see all the new lines in recent years such as RG and the new 1/100 Reborn. Pointing back to the previous comments about the hobby dying out, I believe that a wide range of offerings at different price points is the best way to attract a variety of consumers.


Posted Image

8) Would you like to introduce more people getting into this hobby? the forum?

I would love to see more people building model kits. It is extremely rare to find anyone to chat with about this hobby and all of its facets outside of a forum/youtube/online community. The average IPMS meeting is filled with very knowledgeable folks, but the focus is usually planes and armor… definitely not Sci-fi stuff. That said, I don’t introduce this hobby to people I meet casually. People who are friends obviously see stuff around the house and we end up talking about it, but it is never on my list of things to chat about initially.

Posted Image

9) Do you like and enjoy entering a contest/competition? What do you like the most about it?

I do enjoy contests. Over the years I have entered a handful. I am not a super competitive person, but contests push me to challenge myself and make gains in my own ability. I also really like the contests that require work in progress threads, as I believe that it ups the ante and really pushes others to go further than they normally would when they see other contestants doing great things.

10) Any of your hobby skills that you obtain were applicable to yourself in real life/work?

At my school, I mentor students for the First Lego League robotics challenge, so that’s a fun way to connect kids to building, engineering, and robots in general! I also believe that one gains a lot of general construction knowledge and an understanding of tools and paint and problem solving through modeling. All of that applies directly to “real life.”

11) Most memorable build?

Posted Image

My most memorable build would be the MG Ex-S. That kit is gigantic, part-heavy, and ultimately ends up looking pretty impressive out of the box. I had the box sitting on my shelf for around 2 years before I really felt I had an idea of what I wanted to do with it and felt comfortable executing that plan. The build really forced me to organize an approach for building and painting it in order to not get burnt out. I spent quite a bit of time on that one, but I still really enjoy looking at the kit and thinking about all the different things that went into it.

Posted Image

12) Was there a build that you think you messed up and wanted to throw it away? What did you end up doing?

I have reached that point with a few builds. One such incident happened with the Wave 1/100 Junchoon kit. The frustration level with that kit is astronomical. I got pretty far along with the build, but ultimately put it in the box before I allowed myself to throw it into a wall. It still remains in that box, tucked away, far under my workbench. There may come a day when it resurfaces…. but probably not!

13) How did you stumble on the GE?

I remember having GE pop up continuously when searching the webs for model kits, WIPs, Gunpla news, and other mecha related topics. Gundam Eclipse is by far the best place to find news and product discussion that I have located. I initially joined just to check out people’s finished work and WIPs, but it took me awhile to start posting. The level of talent shared on the site is quite impressive, and the members are incredibly welcoming, humble, and encouraging!

Current Build Experience
14) What are you currently building?

At the moment, I am finishing up my Rick Dom to Dwadge conversion build. I have the kit built, painted, decaled, and such. I am working on a simple base and once that is complete, I will finish weathering the kit. I am also working on a MG RX-78 3.0.

Posted Image

15) How do you like the build so far and why did you make any modifications (if any)? Influences, etc? Tried something new compared to previous builds?

So far, the build has been a bit up and down. I am really excited about the look of the Dwadge. The resin conversion ended up with solid casting and good fit, so that was a relief. I have had to modify a few components of the original plastic Rick Dom such as using C-connections in the knee joints, but overall it has been a pretty straightforward build.

16) Toughest challenge(s) in the build?

I ran into a few issues on the resin chest plate and legs, and those issues slowed things down a lot. The chest plate shrunk considerably in the casting process, so I had to do some chopping and puttying to get it into line and make it fit precisely. The resin portion of one leg piece snapped off at a very structural area (the knee attachment), so I had to scrap the resin legs and modify the plastic legs into the Dwadge versions. I also just had the ankle attachment break on the inside of the leg while positioning the kit, so I am in the midst of coming up with a solution to that!

Posted Image

17) Were there changes that had to be made midway in the build?

I had planned on really knocking this kit out quickly, but it has taken much longer than anticipated. Also in the process, I’ve decided to take a break a few times to build/paint other stuff. I usually like to stay focused on one kit, but the breaks during this build have allowed me to problem solve and reduce frustration caused by part breakage and lack of motivation.

18) Do you recommend what you build/did to others and what level of experience/age group do you think is required to reproduce similar work?

This Dwadge build has required quite a bit of tinkering to make it work. I would recommend it to advanced builders and those comfortable with resin, putty, and problem solving.

Posted Image

19) What kit(s)/project(s) are you planning to build in the near future?

The Kotobukiya 1/400 Evangelion kit has piqued my interest and that will be a kit that I plan to build soon. I also have a HGUC Victory clipped and ready for cleaning and painting. Lastly, I have an SMS MKII to Barzam conversion that I have tinkered with for about ½ a year. I really need to get back to that!

Posted Image

20) Something new you want to try on your next build? Something new to learn?

I have aspirations to learn how to cast in resin. I’m still working on it at the moment, but I’ll get it down one day!

21) Any kits that you dream of having, even though no manufacturer has made one yet?

I have been so excited about all of the material getting released lately. Honestly, huge chunks of my dream kit list have been created in the past few years, especially with Bandai releasing so many amazing RG and HGUC kits. Wave has rereleased a load of classic Ma.k material, and Hasegawa continues to produce quality material from that line as well.

My set of dream kits that I would still love to see in the future would be a resurrected line of 1/144 HGUC kits from the Gundam Advance of Zeta and Sentinel lines. With the Sentinel version of Zeta coming soon, maybe more new kits from that line are on the horizon (FAZZ, S-Gundam w/ Booster, Nero, Barzam please). We have a few suits from AOZ in HGUC kit form, but there are so many other amazing MS that deserve releases (Woundwort, Stutzer, and Gaplant variations to name a few).


Posted Image

Final Thought
22) If you could offer one piece of advice to someone starting out with the hobby, what would that be?

My advice: take your time. Take time to enjoy a build. Take time to research new techniques in building and painting and learn how to do them well through first-hand experience. Take time to let your glue cure and your paint dry. Take time to appreciate the kits that you already having and spend less time worrying acquiring new kits.

It's a great way to take one of your backlogs that you've been wanting to build or take a dive into something different from any V-fins or Monoeyes and test the water!

Just contact one of the staff members to include you and your project in the group build.

I look forward to see more participants and I want to see you there!

So what are you waiting for?

:Pop2: Today's Youtube Spotlight is the unboxing of the MG Turn X by Ryc03. This model was presented to him in recognition of his efforts with the wonderful Hildolfr Warwolf project, which Ryc submitted as his contribution to the "5" group build. :Pop2:



You can find his WIP here: http://gundam-eclipse.net/topic/5453556/1/

And his finished Warwolf here: http://gundam-eclipse.net/topic/5546832/1/#new


I look forward to Ryc03's next build and I hope you will, too!
