MG Deathscythe Hell EW Complete… Sorta…
Posted by Tom on August 7, 2011
What happen was when I put in the shoulder socket to the torso unit, it was really stiff and got stuck half way. So I did some twisting motions to disconnect the arms, and the peg TWISTED off with it. Needless to say I was in disbelief… TT.TT
While I do think the reasons were because of paint layers, I believe it’s also because of the design of the joint. Compare to Quanta’s shoulder peg, the XXXG frame’s shoulder peg is a lot smaller and has hallow “indents” at the base. Also the socket of Quanta’s arm has a polycap, so it makes sliding in more stress free compare to the ABS frame of the Deathscythe.
Needless to say, it’s gonna be a while until I can buy replacement parts from Gundam Guy. Once again, the review of a MG kit is postpone until I can fix this. On the other hand, I’m sorta please with how the paint job came out. I do think it’s better then my Wing Gundam or 00 Quanta, but I still have a lot to learn.
In the mean time, I’m probably gonna start on a HG kit to relax. College class are just around the corner (NOOO! DX) so my focus is going to change real soon.
