On August 16th after I placed my order in papermodelstore.com I received my first commercial paper model. It took me about USD 20 for the goods and delivery charge from Chicago,USA to my office in Jakarta,Indonesia. The model was one of my favorite tanks from GPM called PANTHER. Obviously after made this step my hobby is getting more serious. It's not just one way to pass spare time anymore. Maybe some one would appreciate more by maybe buying the completed models from me.
Speaking about gift, I also have a little gift for all may blog readers. Just an update on my vast paper model collection, you can see it below this list.
MS-06S II Char's Zaku Custom

It's almost a year from our first gathering back in September 2009 at Plaza Semanggi Food Court. So PERI Jabodetabek gathered again to refreshed their mind and to share some new tips and tricks in paper model design and building. On August 7th 2010 we gathered in Solaria Sky Dining at 10th floor at top of Plaza Semanggi, Jakarta. It was fun, because this gathering we don't have to discuss about event or exhibition. So it just a fun gathering and we can have a lot to discuss, especially the upcoming one year of our community. But it does really made me surprise that one year ago we established this community and right now PERI had already member from many cities around Indonesia.
The theme for this gathering is MILITARY paper model,many member including myself brought their models. And the star of this gathering was Jules 1:1 scale SVD Sniper Rifle. It was made by Rauf and as by the picture above held by Bobby, another military freak in our forum. But I wasn't be able to attend the gathering till the end, because I have to go to my family in Bandung. So in the last picture I didn't appeared.

The pictures above are my latest military paper model, taken by Mr Adhiwardhana on our last PERI Jabodetabek Gathering on August 07,2010. And to my humble opinion, those models are not quite enough satisfied me. My building skills is still way under those paper model builder in Europe. But, at least I will learn from my mistakes and becoming more proficient in paper model building. To share my knowledge and experience on Diorama buildings, I have wrote an article about it in here. So please check it out.
On early August 2010 it's official that's we had a PERI Makasar. Makasar it's one of the important city in Sulawesi island that located in East Indonesia.
