So the very wonderful Kimbo got me a Mirage Fox as a cheer up present after I lost one of my chickens and took it very hard — sort of doubled as a sweet ‘hey it’s been 10 years since I gifted you your first zoid’ thing, which was a classic Tomy Shadow Fox. Since I was up here not only could I pick her up, but I also got to sit down today and customise her while Kimbo worked on her Gil Dragon!
Awesome how things work out, huh?
This was a day build — pretty much every part was customised, including the standard Shadow Fox armour pieces should I ever want to swap armour out. I don’t think I will though, because I’m too in love with the redux pieces for the mirage-only Foxy armour and wing blades. The new canopy piece and cheeks are really stunning too. I did the feet in silver, and at Kimbo’s brilliant suggestion I did the caps in purple because they go nicely with the eyepieces.
Best decision. Also bless enamel paints because it allowed for them to be painted.
Teeth were painted with titanium gold because ew, white teeth, and all the grilled panels on the leg armours and body were silvered where they hadn’t done it (because they were selective with it for some reason) along with a crapton of panel lining. Some of which isn’t even appreciable because of the armour.
I just wanted to give this kit my total love, and I sure as hell did. Being a Tomy she puts together fast as hell, so it was like an incredibly gratuitous finish to a day of touching up.
Awesome kit. Totally snap one up if you appreciate the classic Fox, especially because of the new armour and headpieces.
