    So it's still to bloody cold up here in Canada for me to paint anything.
    So I just keep working on different projects, I've had backlogging me for a while.

    I've always wanted to make a Classics Blitzwing,
    but as always I like to try & find my own spin to put on a project.
    Hybrid turret & canon added.

    All mods complete, just prepping for paint left.

    I will be sacrificing some articulation & there will be partsforming.
    It just for my collection & I'm more concerned with the over all look of bot mode, over transformation.

    Update, Alt modes pics uploaded

    Finally got to paint this guy after so long.
    Still got some touch ups (that I saw after taking pics) to do &
    finish off the details on bot mode
    Bot mode pics by the end of the weekend.

    Finally Completed !!!! :music 

    Well after a long winter Blitzwing is finally done.
    Even after all my prep, I still have a few rub issues.
    I really hate working with the seeker mold. *shakes fist*
    Over all I'm very happy with the end result.

    C&C always welcome.

    Very nice NP, would love to see your take on this triplechanger. Quite a tricky challenge eh? But I know you're up to it!

    I say long turret. One of most distinctive features on Blitzwing to me is that you can see his turret looming behind him in bot mode.

    hello i'm new in tfw..

    your blitzwing is great..i prefer long turret one..but imho i think, the upper body tank is too large from the lower body..it's perfect if you can make long turret from the first pic idea, because it's look better in proportion imho :)

    nice start NP!:) 
    i know, what horrible weather to paint....sooo many things that need painting:( 
    i want to try my hands @ Blitzwing, he was one of my favorite triple changers, next to Astrotrain.
    i like the use of the Classics 2pack Megs, then the Movie Brawl.

    It's not that bad so far. I figure, I can get away with a little more parts showing in the 2 different modes after that wonderful Animated Blitzwing Hasbro gave us. :lol 

    Yep, I love that color combo.

    So, if I'm reading what your saying right. Put a long barrel on the Classics 2pk Megs turret ?

    That, I think I'm going to look into.

    Yeah, so do I. you know how much I love that movie line. :lol

    I'd say long turret as well. I really like where the idea for this is going. I honestly wish we could have gotten this for a classics.

    Looks like a couple of folk are trying for this - and both using Acid Storm as the base. Looks awesome so far. Let the race begin!

    I can't wait to see this! I've been thinking about how that would be done. And now, I'm totally going to copy you if that's cool...
