Unfortunately, it didn't work as well on the Redemptor.  With the Vindicator, the lines of demarcation were quite clear, a good portion of it is more hidden on the Redemptor.  The reason makes sense when you look at the fluff too.  Basically a standard sarcophagus plugs into whatever chassis is needed at the time.  By that measure, literally the only yellow 'should' have been the sarcophagus.  At any rate, I weathered it up and it's fine for table top, but I think I may try another in the future with more of a standard yellow Imperial Fists paint scheme.
