Meijin Modeler - Ogami

Plastic modeling as a hobby is a lot like music. There's a long list of different genres to get into: mecha, tanks, aircraft, cars, figures, and so on. A hobbyist can be into more than one of these at the same time, just as one can enjoy listening to rock, jazz and hip hop, and maybe the occasional Taylor Swift record.
