    Hi guys,

    My wife and I just had a new baby, so apart from baby sitting, I have had some time to do a custom. This one is really close to my heart and I really wanted to do a triple changer for a long long time.

    The initial transformation took ages to figure out and this figure I have been working on for months on bits and pieces. I have however recently been able to complete this.. Phew !!!! and I am pretty happy with the outcome. I hope you guys like it.

    So, without further a due, here goes and hope you guys like it.

    Also, finally found some fantastic chrome paint. Worked out well on the missiles and the rear wings.

    Please be aware, this is graphic heavy to accommodate the alt modes.

    Bot mode & your paint apps look good. Alt modes just look a right mess.
    Planes mode is the better of the 2, but your proportions a really off.
    Bulky in the back & just very hollow up front. You can even see his head in plane mode.
    Tank mode looks half transformed, not much more I can say about that.
    Personally, I can't help but feel you just gave up on both alt modes.
    I think with more work you could have made those modes look as good as Bot mode.
    I'm not trying to tear you or your work down. I'm just telling it like I see it (IMO).
    The attack dogs can come after me now.

    You've got a good idea there. The execution though is not great. Bot mode is not bad though very kibble heavy. Jet mode is not too bad but shows too much of the tank parts. Tank mode has too many gaps.

    Thanks for the comments. All comments positive and constructive feedback are always welcomed so Nem Predaking, no worries.

    Nem Predaking, its fair comments that you made. Its a triple changer and the largest project I have tried. I am glad you like the bot mode, the alt modes, I have had to make sacrifices due to the triple changer but I understand about the gaps and weight distribution (not something I have had much luck in pursuing). Given that this is my first round of completion on this figure, I am more than happy to revisit.

    Noted.

    Did take me days and weeks to work out, and am glad you like the way it transforms. I think there are things that I can do to make it better.

    Long Haul, it seems I have a bit more to go, once I am completely satisfied with it, we can talk :) 

    Thank you.

    Thank you.

    SCPrime, noted as above and thanks for the comments.

    Rahal, thank you. :)

    Hey, man. We only learn by doing in this crazy hobby.
    I know what you mean about triple changers.
    My Classics Blitzwing took alot of trail & error to get to the stage where
    I was was happy with it. I also got very lucky in some places with what I wanted to do.
    Glad you got what I was trying to say.

    Great idea. Bot mode is great. The alt modes need some work. Great start.

    Love the paint apps, 'bot mode is especially intimidating.

    One suggestion for tank mode, since the tank treads don't fully connect, how about two separate sets of treads on each side instead of the one tread with a split down the middle.

    Every custom has flaws, but I applaud yours because it's the closest anybody has come so far to making a true MP Blitzwing that is nearly 100% accurate in all three modes. Kudos!
