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.
