White Rock Shooter inspired Mecha-Scythe done!
After assembling and gluing the pieces together, I glued a couple of pieces cut out from thin plastic sheet to add detail. Then came painting... gray works here it because matches Strarf's black/dark theme (thanks Mikuo!).
The violet blade edges are removable (had to remove them before painting) and can be replaced with other colors, but I like how it looks now.
Strarf as Black Rock Shinki
Progress was faster than I originally anticipated... which is a good thing. With this project done, I can start focusing on other things for now (Howling's leg armor painting, shinki segway, giant spiked mace, etc.)
