Good thing today's featured builder has been in my life for quite some time. So without further ado, I proudly present a builder fairly new to Gunpla and the Gundam franchise, Indigo!

Gunpla Origin Story
July 2014: the height of one of the best summers ever. I had recently purchased a pre-HGUC HG GM Sniper for the long distance beam rifle as a cheaper option than getting the Builders Parts System Weapon 004. With this purchase, I also obtained an extra mobile suit with a variety of weapons, and a 1:1200 scale Apsalus III. Using the beam rifle on my Jegan Sniper Type, I had no direct plan for the rest of the kit.
While talking to Indigo one evening, he showed a decent amount of interest in Gunpla. I decided to give him the remainder of the kit as a way to kick off the hobby (without having to invest in anything).

At the time I was working pretty hard on finishing the Strike Senketsu so most of the kits I ordered and received were on backlog. As Indigo finished the straight build of the partial kit I gave him, I thought it would be appropriate to pass the HGUC Z'gok to a new builder.
