The Lagoon’s First Decade!

I can hardly believe it, but it has been 10 big years since the I first posted here on the Sprue Lagoon. It was on Remembrance Day, 2012, that I came home from the annual ceremony at the downtown cenotaph and posted my first article, the Matchbox Mirage III B-2 (RV), which was followed the next day by my first car kit, the 1/32 Monogram Ford EXP! It seems like forever since then, and I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for your support of this site.

I don’t make any money off this site – I just do it for fun! The great part is that I’ve gotten the chance to know a lot of awesome people along the way, and have learned as much, if not more, than I’ve taught!

I always try to make my articles a bit different, give some context and have some fun, too. It has meant a lot to me that people have commented to me that they like my site and my style. It can take a while to prepare an article, and it is rewarding to know that people out there enjoy them and can see the effort I put in.

Over the years, the two most popular things on this site have been the Academy 1/72 Ju-87G Panzerknacker and the Marui 1/35 Mercedes G4. I’ve also been amazed that the Stargazer Gundam has been a perrenial favourite, and since I have a personal attachment to it, I am always heartened to see that.

So, in short, a giant thank you to all those of you who spend your time here with me at the Lagoon!

Here’s to a few more weird and wild decades!
