    Not much to say. Speaks for itself. Classics sized Blitzwing. Thundercracker and Warpath molds. Turret and treads are held in place with a plastic hair tie. Basically, imagine Jetfire's backpack, but I haven't gotten around (or care to) to making pegs for it.
    He's a leaner, much like Delicate Warrior.
    G1 Motormaster sword. G1 Blurr gun combined with a seeker gun.
    I'm not a professional, Far from it. This was done for the love of a G1 Transformers character.
    CC welcome, but just remember, I'm nowhere near a "Radycon", and don't claim to be.
    Still, I'm very happy with my Blitzwing next to my Protector, and thats what this hobby is all about.
    If you have your own little radycon shop, and feel like being a smartass, just keep your shit to yourself.
    This was just for fun, and I'm just so proud of you for being better than me and the folks like me.
    Good for you.
    Also, my camera is a piece of utter shit, but I'm happy to be able to at least post the gist of my character.
    This isn't going on ebay. This is a fan creation.

    Sorry for the Blurry pics, that's just how I roll.
    Oh yea, he transforms, but I keep my figs in robot mode, so it doesn't really matter. Turret obviously attaches in the same manner when in vehicle modes.....
    Just a lil classics bot, obviously not meant to be MP, but I bet he'll look nice next to Hercules.
    Merry Christmas

    If you could post the alt modes, that would be great.

    Nice, but here's hoping you can provide more (not to mention clearer) pictures.

    I think it looks great, but I'd say there is no need to 1. belittle your own work and 2. be so quick to put up your shields. I haven't noticed anyone being overly harsh in there comments. Believe me, I've seen some bad one. Good luck on your next project and I hope you enjoyed making this. Also, plz some alt-mode pics, even if you don't pose them in alt-mode doesn't mean we the people do not want to see the fruits of your labor. I for one would love to see what this looks like transformed, cuz I might steal the idea.:D

    Looks good. I like the mold choice of Warpath. Most of the Blitzwings I've seen have used deluxe movie Brawl. Your custom is unique and a great match.

    I am definitely liking this ALOT. Altho I really want to see the Alt mode, but I respect your decision in not posting them yet.

    But I've gotta say, your work looks great :thumb

    thanks for the comments! I was afraid I would get put down since I'm not as knowledgable in alot of things like pin removal and finishing techniques.
    I'll go ahead and post some pics of the altmode , but right now I'm a little tired from christmas, I drank quite a bit.
    That's probably why I came off kinda defensive. Also, I was frustrated because the thread wouldn't post and I had to try 3 times before I realized the attachment was needed.
    There are still some things I'd like to do with it, a little silver on the thruster/heels and on that little crescent shaped thing above the cockpit. I also should have covered it with tape before the initial spray-paint, but I was going for DW comics/toon accuracy so the purple cockpit works for robot mode.
    The turret is a pain because it is so heavy.
    And I do have to admit that if I took the time to learn about pin removal I could experiment much more.
    I was also scared someone would take the word flip in the title the wrong way, thank god everyone knows what I meant this time :) 
    Thanks again! I'll try to get those pics up, and I'll try my hand at that Oil Slick to Cy-Kill repaint. That's a good example of how pin removal could help the paint process.
    Later guys!

    looks good, really like the colors, don't worry about the comments, 99% are good here, think once in a while you get a bad one, but they usually get chewed out pretty good lol

    also would like to see the alt modes with the base molds hanging around here, i wouldn't mind trying my hand at it
