ZR-42D Archangel and Archangel Plus

I can't believe I didn't think of this until whenever it was that I posted that LDView pic of this fighter in orange and dk blue.


On the left is the original (sort of, click here to see the original coloring), which uses 4L bars and technic half pins to hold the wings.


But on the right is more my original vision for the thing, with the wings tucked in nice and close, giving it a much more polished look. That's only been possible with these new flick-fire parts, which are a technic half-pin with a 3L bar (2L from the half-pin).


Also, I found some of those pyramid wedges on BL, which are what I originally wanted, but didn't have in dark red.


Now all I need are those big wedges in dark blue, and I'm good to go.


PS - the lighting sucks b/c I was playing around with a new lamp I bought at Staples.

    While I like the tucked in wings more, I look the smooth curved wedges more on the original. Guess I'll have to update mine next time I go home. :P

    You should see it in profile or a rear angled shot - it looks pretty mean.

    I'm going to try an put an all-black one together, but I've gotta wait on some wings. That should look pretty sweet. The only grey would be the thrusters.

    The fighters as such looked pretty good when I saw them a while ago, but they seem to look even more menacing against the background. Nice work.

    The 'meaness' is being helped by that sunk-in cockpit, methinks. I'll have to remember that.

    I still think the one on the right looks more 'stable.' But on both, the engines look soo juicy..

    yup, definitely my two SECOND fav fighters of yours.
