This was commissioned by my special lady, who wanted a pink zoid that was still boss. His (her?) name is either Lady Redler, or Redler Stardust (see #8). If you think yellow paint is hard to work with, try using pink sometime! (Maybe if I had used a white primer…)
Inspired by Tilly and Rick R, I affixed a CP-24 onto my Red Wing. Be sure you have some extra caps for it, because the white ones that come with the CP match nothing! I tried to put them in other places that might look better, but no amount of ski11z or spare parts could help me.
OJRs are never cheap, but somehow I lucked out and found this one in a lot for a not obscene price. I wanted it for the slightly lighter-than-NJR shade of wings (either for my chromie, or to paint clear blue in attempt at a recreating the ultra-rare Genesis version), but I think I like them better where they belong.
I’m not sure why they didn’t make the body armor chrome too, but oh well. I love the orange wings on this one. Though the box shows black under-parts, and my model has them, the standard issue was grey. I gave away my gray parts, thinking I had spares, so for these pics I raided the under-bits off an NJR Redler. (Some Redwings did have black parts, but those were factory escapees and never officially released.)
