I had finished this Gundam for a while now but never get to put him on my blog. So here he is, Gundam Deathscythe Hell Custom.

He is one of the five main Gundams in Gundam Wing Endless Waltz OVA. This model had been around for quite a while, but I manage to get hold of him just last year. Better late than never!

One of the main things I like about Deathscythe Hell Custom is his grim reaper motif. Designed by Katoki Hajime, Deathscythe Hell Custom looks creepier and grimmer compare to his television series design.

One thing about Katoki Hajime design is his Gundams are usually shorter than the other Gundams. As you can see, Gundam Astray Red Frame and Gundam RX-78-2 are slightly taller than Deathscythe Hell Custom.

The hand, although movable, cannot really hold the scythe well. I had some difficulty trying to get him hold his scythe in different positions.

Not much details on his body, but painting his face is quite a challenge because there were lots of details on his face.

The three red stripes on his cheek really test my skill with the brush. Should have painted the eyes with metallic green so that it can appear as if the eyes are glowing… Maybe I will do that.

Overall mobility of this model is not really that spectacular. His knee cannot really bend much and thus his poses are also quite limited.

All in all, the model is quite plain. The wings especially could probably look better with some details…The wings can be folded to cover his body.

I will probably get the Master Grade Gundam Deathscythe Hell Custom and compare how technology can make a difference.
