I am Don Suratos aka donc0023 / DC23, I am a Freelance Artist. I have 3 lovely kids, 2 girls and a boy and a very supportive wife.
I started Gundam modeling back in 2008 and I learned all my Gunpla modeling basics from lurking at FichtenFoo.com. I continue to be inspired by great modelers and friends around the world wide web like Toymaker, Matt Tomczek, Matt Mrozek, Julius Lim, Izakku81, Eday, Kriz to name a few. I am very lucky and fortunate to have won as BAKUC World / Grand Champion back in HongKong on the same year ( 2008 ).
I am the first Pinoy Filipino modeler to have won as World Champion since the Philippines started participating in Bandai Model Kit Asian Cup ( BAKAC - international competition, now GBWC - Gunpla Builders World Cup ) since 2003.
I started this blog last November 2009 and this blog features my Gundam collection, WIPS, artworks, a few of my toys, M.A.C. forum updates, featured Mechas / model kits by modeler friends and anything I want to talk about.
I am currently focused on illustrations and miniature painting as of the moment.
