Serpent Custom appeared as the most advanced grunt units in the OVA Gundam W Endless Waltz with almost impermeable defense against the Tallgeese III and the Gundams. Built with toughness like tank, Serpent Custom equipped itself with double-barrel gatling guns in both arms, just like the ones Heavy Arms Gundam Custom is having. With its stout built, Serpent Custom could carry weapons, deemed too heavy from other MS like the bazooka as well as beam cannon attached to the backpack even under the force of gravity.
For a non MG grade, this 1/100 scale is an ideal size in projecting the hunk of Serpent Custom. The dull khaki colour scheme of the MS give it a raggard look, very close to the anime appearance. Some minus points are that the plastic quality seems inferior with noticeable gaps when the parts are snapfitted and mine came with left thigh & shoulder armours not molded properly (Some plastic putty on the joints would solve the issue). The head rest flat on the body rotating 360 degree but have difficulty tilting up and down.
The shoulder armour can slide open for missile launching and despite the bulkiness of the shoulders, the well designed joints between shoulders and arms, gave a lot of articulation. The legs on the other hand, lacked articulation hence kneeling pose is not possible. The legs also hang loosely in mid air when held up. There ain't many parts so the snap-fit so this process should be quite a breeze. The pics above are just straight build of the kit with panel lines drawn and weapons sprayed black. Minimum touch up because I intend to change its colour scheme to blue/white scheme alike the Sangokuden BB Xu Huang Serpent Custom.
