    I made a gnarly ol Photoshop of how this sucker would work about a year ago. I wasn't even gonna build one until I saw Classics versions by Alphamagnus and Tom Servo which pushed me to try.
    .....and, here's what I've got so far. Still deciding on whether I should go full-on cartoon with the chest or try to make the "realistic" jet body work.

    Your work never ceases to amaze me, bud. I'd like to see you go as realistic as possible without compromising the elements that make Blitzwing who he is from the incarnations that we know him from (i.e., the cartoon, the comics, etc.).

    Also, while I know one of those things is the nosecone showing up in the tank mode, I'd like to see you rectify that portion myself (it always bugged me, even as a kid). On the same note, I'm curious as to seeing how the jet mode will look with enclosing the tank parts.

    As always, keep us posted and keep up the great work :thumb

    Wow. How realistic can the Jet mode go? You are going to have to do some magic to hide the tank treads.
    Other than that I say bravo. Can't wait to see this thing finished.

    Blitzwing was one of my favourites growing up. It's looking awesome, and I can't wait to see it when it's completed!

    Hey Wikkid, I love this! I think you can pretty realistic ifyou go for a 1:72 Mig 25 model kit, it's the jet that blitzwing is based on, check it out if you have time. I think it would look a lot better than the f-15

    So awesome so far. I say GO G1 ANIME STYLE like just about all of your other customs. If you go realistic he won't fit the style of your other MPs
