    With Blitzwing seeing an awful lot of love recently I figured I'd throw my humble attempt in the ring as well. This has been one of my WIPs for far too long (kinda jumped on the Classics wagon & have yet to get off)(...no snippy comments please...) :sly: 

    Let me be the first to admit that I approached Blitzwing with nowhere near the talent level that someone like Wikkid has. (I am in absolute awe that you can turn a MP into a triple changer):bowdown:  So I opted to just make a seeker version of him. I'm still considering making one that only transforms into a tank. (PSSST Wikkid...what kind of tank is that you're using on yours?)

    Anyway like I said he's still a WIP, gaps need to be filled, cockpit needs major work, paint needs to be touched up, etc...

    As for decals I think I'm going to go with some sort of light brown/red decepticon/Russian star logo. Well it's too cold around here to do anymore painting outside so I guess he'll have to wait 'til spring...oh the agony...

    Beautiful! A very convincing transformation (pun intended!) from F-15 to Mig (Foxbat, I believe!) !!!:thumbs2:  Paint choices are perfect, and you'll knock out those few touch ups and have a great MP Blitzwing! Bravo!:thumbs2:

    I like it, although I wouldn't have painted over the window but if that's what you wanted then it's all good

    I didn't paint it.

    I removed the entire window assembly and the top of the jet was re-molded from styrene from what is now the cockpit window all the way back to the engines(heels) to make the overall profile look more like a Mig Foxbat.

    The front of the window now sits about an inch back from where it was originally.
