Don't forget to view the full size!

3rd Up is DeathScythe Hell! One of my favorite designs from Gundam Wing, I randomly came across this kit after having never seen it before(physically) so I just had to grab it, and Glad I did!

Only 12 more kits to go! Woooooo.

would you recommend  getting this kit?

It depends, the kit itself is old, really old, MGs and even the newer HGs are much better design-wise. Heck, they don't even use Black plastic for the black parts, but a dark midnight blue if I remember correctly.

But that being said it is the only kit of the Deathscythe Hell that exists to my knowledge so it kinda has that going for it.

In the end, if can/want/will take teh time to do the kit right along the lines of what I've done here, it would probably be the cheapest way to acquire something like this and being at 1/100th scale it is nicely sized for display. Otherwise you would need to look at the various figure companies to see if they've even made a Deathscythe Hell Figure, usually it gets overshadowed by the original Deathscythe, the Endless Waltz Deathscythe and the new Deathescythe Ver.KA MG kit.

Valid points there, but if you were to recommend a Deathscythe gunpla, which one?
MikeTehFox's avatar
MikeTehFoxHobbyist Digital Artist
Well there is basically only 1 of each variant, so just go with which ever variant you like best.

OH YES! I have an idea for a custom gunpla. The idea is a Unicorn as a base with banshee claws on both arms using the Deathsythe's ver Ka backpack. sound good to you? (Also blue psychoframe)

Personally there isn't much I'm a fan oh when it comes to the Ver.KA, which is really sad because all the other Ver.KAs for GW area really nice, except maybe Wing but they also have MGs for the Anime Wing and Wing Zero/prototype so it's fine.

So much cooler than it's Endless Waltz version. The wings don't look too gimmicky, and the scythe has TWO blades! And a rocket booster on the back!

I know right? The new Gundam Wing Ver.KA MG kits are all fantastic, except for Wing and Deathscythe, luckily I've already done Wing, so it just means I'll need to do a LOT of work to make Deathscythe look decent.

You painted the black parts, right?

Can you tell me what other parts you painted and what color paint you used?
MikeTehFox's avatar
MikeTehFoxHobbyist Digital Artist
The Entire thing is painted.

I mainly used Privateer P3 Paints, but I used Games Workshop blood red for the red and Mythril Silver for the metallic parts.

Did you use primer?
MikeTehFox's avatar
MikeTehFoxHobbyist Digital Artist
Yes, everything was primed while on the sprue and painted as it was assembled.

Just some spray primer from a hardware store.

Thanks. They always seem to look a lot better painted.

And my friend is sending me a white colored model to paint for him, and likewise I'm getting DSH myself.

1/100th or 1/64th or horror the 1/144th scale(I had one and it SUCKED)?
MikeTehFox's avatar

1/100th, I didn't think DS:H came in any other scale, I know the Endless Waltz version of DeathScythe coems in 1/144th, 1/100th and recently/soon 1/100th Mastergrade.

I had the Endless Waltz model, fell apart, got a D-Hell MSiA(Mobile Suits in Action) figure that makes up for that design failure of a design the 1/144th scale is.
