Fun To Build Gunpla! (Video) w/ Katsumi Kawaguchi-Sensei

This Fun to build Gunpla! video, hosted by Katsumi Kawaguchi-sensei is a pretty good visual tutorial for those who are new to building gunpla.  Is a broad stroke approach to some of the basic skills required to complete a gunpla kit, but it does a fine job in showing the viewer some useful techniques.  Even if you are an advance gunplar, this video is still worthy to check out!
Kawaguchi-san is pretty much the driving force behind Bandai's strategy team for their hobby products division.  His 'Origin' began as a model builder who later became a professional enjoying a successful career at Bandai Co., Ltd.  Kawaguchi-san is now consider a living god among gunpla fans.  But he doesn't sit high above out of reach from us common gunplars.  Kawaguchi-san is actually quite approachable and friendly to all his fans.  And just like us, he frequently browse thru various gunpla websites / blogs to see how gunpla is reaching out to the world.  In recent communication with Kawaguchi-san, he even mentioned that he is a frequent visitor at our Gundam Guy blog.  That's quite a boost of morale for us here, as we are trying to do our best to spread our love for Gundam to the english speaking crowds.
