    I had this junker Armada Megatron that I got in an ebay lot, and I actually like the mold quite a bit but hate the colors. I was inspired by a single panel in "All Hail Megatron" to do this custom.

    Krylon metallic paint for the gold.
    Some gold paint marker for touch-up.
    Some grey parts were dyed purple with Rit clothing dye (check my other customs for more of this).

    The gold spray paint I figured was a good approximation for his beige in G1 but then I got to thinking that it's sort of flashy. And since this guy has no jet mode he can't be Blitz*wing* so I was going to call him just Blitz. Now I am undecided between Blitz or Blitzbling.

    Hope you like.

    have you considered modding him through the lower arms so he can use a energon jet lib figure as a jetwing shield ala g1 overlord?

    Hmm. No I haven't considered that. I am not really a heavy modder.

    Very well done. I think the only thing I would do different is the head, but the paint apps are spot on. :thumb

    Great Idea. He matches the TF Club Astrotrain very well!
