One of my first 1/100 similar to my 1/100 Deathscythe Hell Custom. I built this model back in 2001 and thought I share it with everyone for what it is worth today.
As far as I can remember, the basic body of this Gundam is exactly the same as the other four Endless Waltz Gundams with the only difference are design details unique to themselves. What I mean is the construction method are the same; clap two half pieces to form leg, two half pieces for arm, polycap on polycap for joints, etc. The things that makes this Gundam different are all the missile stuff and its open chest gatling cannons. The chest cover can become frustrating to plug into. If you’ve built one of the 1/100 then you can pretty much go through the others almost without the need for its construction manual. It’s that easy.
The completed model is one of the most impressive of its line-up at the time and it sure is accurate to its OVA counterpart and it does look very good. Proportions are nice and details aren’t shabby. Out of all the EW 1/100 models, this is one that can actually stand still without much issues such as weight problems or tilting to the side. Over time, the joints will wear because it’s all polycaps. Action poses are limited though despite the rather unrestricted clearance of its joints. Full Open mode is probably the best you can do with this model but it is a sight to behold.
This model is great for nostalgic purposes ^_^ I plan on buying another one to replace the original one but that’s at the very end of my list.
