A new place to buy Gunpla, or Gundam Plastic Models

Back when I started web design, one of my first sites was related to Gundam, the popular anime from Japan that has been around since 1979. The site, called Gundam Plus, was quite popular. I ran this site for 7 years during my youth and learned a ton about Gundam and technology, and eventually it helped propel my career towards web development.

Fast forward to today, where I'm friends with a local toy store with aspirations to become a leading supplier of Gundam model kits. They are Galactic Toys, based out of Grand Rapids, MI. Seeking to help my friend while learning more about their platform Shopify, I built a new site called Gundam Plus Models. It takes some of the branding of my old site and shifts to an eCommerce-based source for finding the latest Gundam model kits. It utilizes the Galactic Toys product lineup and orders are fulfilled through them. My goal is to give their catalog more exposure while providing a simple resource for Gunpla (Gundam Plastic Models) shopping online. They also offer free shipping and have very competitive prices compared to Amazon!
