    I did this a while back. I took some pointers from people who were doing it at the time but couldnt figure out how to attach the tank turret to the back or in jet mode. I eventually sat it down for about a year or so. Accidentally stumbled upon it again at a later time and had an epiphany. I finished it up and never took pics. Here it is for you guys to check out. My "Classics" style Blitzwing....by the way...it IS a lot harder than it looks to build a triple changer. Kudos and many thanks to those that had gone before.

    I'd like some details. What was the epiphany? How did you attach the tank parts?

    I thought and thought on and off for like ever about how to connect the parts. The underside of the turret...Galvatron arm has lego pieces attached to it so that it can connect to the tread portion in robot mode. In both other modes the connection happens between the screw holes in the legs and the existing piece under the cannon of Galvs arm that allows rotation during his tank mode. Bit of a parts former but I can deal with it. Thanks for the comments guys.

    Originally when I had looked at it, I thought "magnets" but the lego parts would definitely make it more solid. I really like how you incorporated the tank treads folding into the wing section.
