Hi guys,
Here is another Gundam that I had been working on for around a year. The 1/100th Deathscythe Hell Custom from Endless Waltz. TUNA took these at the same time as the RGM-79 GM. For this one I wanted a semi gloss finish for the main body and a flat finish on the wings. The paint scheme is "canon". The majority of the time was spent removing, filling and sanding the multitude of ejector pin marks inside the open areas of the wings.





It's a little different for me because in keeping with the way it is drawn in the anime, there was no weathering done at all. Hope you like it. I'm just glad it is finally done. :-)

Nice! It's all too rare to see a clean paintjob on one of these that doesn't just look like a toy, but this is one of those few. While I personally think this would look great with some light weathering, you've decided to go clean, and done a good job of it. Good work.

I'll second Wraith's comments. I'm not much for Gundams, but your's looks pretty darned nice. Even though there's no weathering, it doesn't have the cartoon look.
Good work! :-)

Wow, Dixon, that thing rocks. I am weathering the heck out of mine for the Winter Build. Poor feller lost an arm and everything...
But, I like yours way better than mine.

Thanks guys,
Keenan, lets see that thing soon! I'm drooling waiting for a seriously battle damaged Gundam.

That thing is majestic! I would like to ask to draw a black ink on the panel line on the mouth of the unit. That is somewhat like an exhaust for I've been researching some Gundam kits a long time ago.

Below is a fairly poor picture of the beat up Gundam guy. A couple of other pictures are over in the Winter Build thread...
First try on one of these but I think I will do a couple more... HAd fun blowing the arm off and adding the hanging stuff.
