Figure Build – MG 1/100 Deathscythe Hell EW Overview and Thoughts

I just finished my Deathscythe Hell build this morning. This kit was my first Master Grade and the first build where I actually tried to put effort into sanding the parts to try and get rid of nub marks.

By the time I finished the upper half of the kit, it was already around 2:00am so I went to bed.

“Finished” build
Notice how I didn’t include pictures for the cape and legs? I kinda stopped giving a shit about properly sanding down nubs and wanted to finish building as soon as possible.
Overall, I’d say the kit was worth it. I got it for PhP2,350.00 (about $45) from an online seller here in the Philippines. The figure needs more work before I can truly call it complete, but I’m happy with the result. Here’s what I think about the kit based on this Out of Box build:

Design – 8.7/10

The design is definitely cool, but the color scheme is rather bland in comparison to the details in some more recent Gundam models.

Articulation/Mobility – 8.0/10

The joints are pretty damn solid and have a wide range of motion. This would allow more posing possibilities but is limited by how well you can balance the figure. A stand might be necessary for more dynamic poses.

Durability/Materials – 8.5/10

The plastic used for this is quite sturdy, but some parts (just the skirt, really) tend to fall off when you look at them the wrong way.

Build Time – ~ 8 Hours


I’m looking forward to having this kit sanded, panel lined and painted once I get more tools.
