Here at Cake we are all about discussing interests rather than people 😉. We are still a tiny community with a wide range of interests, so please don't be discouraged if you can't immediately find some who is interested in gunpla. Hopefully they'll join soon.
It is really cool that you can just get a kit and assemble it yourself: https://gcu.tactical-grace.net/hg/juaggu/#p/1
