Red Shadows - black and red gloves

Red Shadows - black and red gloves
Hiya guys. Hope all is cool with y'all on this sunny weekend - nice to be inside on the PC, d'oh! Okay, I really should know this and I'm sure this has been answered elsewhere (but I can't find it) so I was hoping someone could answer a query for me please?

Basically, what's the difference between the red and black gloved variants of the Red Shadows? I always thought that the black gloves were for :vulture: (Red Vulture) but I've just noticed that I've got around 25% black glove versions in my soon-to-be-sold Red Army. I know there are a few differences with the eye designs, but was curious if there was anything signficant or rare with the black-gloved dudes? Any help would be appreciated, as I can't find the answer online.
:vulture: :laser: :shadow:

Cheers, Steve.

PS: I bet after all that, it IS :vulture: and I've just somehow got 4-5 versions of him down the years... but I'd love to know either way.

Steve,

you are right the black glove ones are Red Vulture.
When confronted by a difficult problem you can solve it more easily by reducing it to the question. How would the Lone Ranger handle this?

Awesome, cheers matey. Of course I knew that was going to be the case.... staring at me right in the face! Thanks for clarifying - I can now at least put each :vulture: with the Shadowtraks I'm selling (he didn't go to Shadowtrak advanced driving school for nothing you know).

Thanks again, Steve

I think some red gloved shadows were also packaged with the Shadowtrak, also some black gloved vultures have been sold carded as Red Shadows.

Im sure someone else will clarify this :)

The archive is a very good guide for colouring and painting.

First one I've seen. But in fairness not been looking long. The "shad moc variant obsession" is only a relatively recent illness. Now for a "shadow rossa" (Italian carded one) and I'm getting about done!
