Gundam Deathscythe Hell Custom…


I have Gundam Deathscythe Hell Custom HG 1/100! Bought this model in KL during my one week holiday. The only one left in this one shop in Low Yatt.


Never had I thought that I would be seeing that Gundam again.

Very rare indeed.

The only Gundam that I really like from the Gundam Wing line. Still, all in all, the Gundam Wing’s Gundam designs are still one of the best and unique. The best to me is Gundam Deathscythe Hell Custom!
Other Deathscythe’s designs are not really that awesome. I am glad Gundam Deathscythe Hell Custom design did not turn out bad. If not, it would be a shame…

Anyway, I had started to build Gundam Deathscythe Hell Custom. Have not cut the parts off the runners yet. I mean, not all of them.

I usually like to do most of the panel lining and painting while the parts still stuck to the runner.
Make it easier for me to do my work. Only if some area of the part is easier to be accessed by cutting it off, then I will do it.

So I had panel line some of the parts.

The horn was painted gold. Basically, that is pretty much it.

This is one of the Gundams that does not need too much paint and panel lining.


Hoping to be able to finish this one pretty quickly…

Good Bye Fullmetal Alchemist! Thank you!

At last, after being released for nearly 9 years, one of my favourite manga has come to an end.

First chapter came out in August 2001 and its final chapter 108 draws the curtain in June 2010.

I would not want to spill the whole story for you here… But I had always enjoyed the remarkable plot and storyline of Fullmetal Alchemist. The number of characters is not too overwhelming and quite distinct with their own unique character, adding more flavor to the manga. The characters support the plot well.

The best part of the story is the moral values instilled. The manga encourage studying and the main characters never stopped studying. They never give up when they could not understand something and persevere until the knowledge is in their grasp.

It has been a long journey and it is sad to see a good manga has come to the end. Still, the ending was a good one, putting the whole story into perfect balance. Anti climax marvelously done I will say.

I had enjoyed waiting for its new chapter’s release every month from the first day I read it in one of our local magazine. I do hope Hiromu Arakawa will make another good manga.

Fullmetal Alchemist’s new adventure?

Anyhow, thank you so much for the manga,
Hiromu Arakawa! You are the greatest!
Fullmetal Alchemist should be one of the gems of the comic world!

Read the manga!
It is really that good!

Trust me…
