    So here we go, my first ever Customised Triple Changer!

    Blitzwing was a bit of a challenge with getting things to line up properly and with finding ways for him to actually be a triple changer.....

    Blitzwing guns and missiles I have altered the tank parts on the legs to receive the guns, giving him a more menacing and 'bristling with guns' look when in tank mode. He also has his jet mode!

    paints were airbrushed on after washing, priming and basecoating the figure, Highlights and drybrushing were applied with a paintbrush to acheive a weathered and shaded appearance

    I also chopped up some other tfs and used about 2 shitloads of epoxy resin!

    Let me know what you think, C&C most welcome

    Hmm, this is very nice! The Jet mode is spectacular, but the tank mode is slightly hindered by the nose cone of the jet. Also the bot mode is awesome!

    Thanks, yeah agree about the tank, theres just nowhere for the nosecone to go unless i Magnetised it which wouldve been a real pain in the backside.....
    I tried to compensate by adding the guns as a distraction technique ha ha

    thanks for the compliment

    It looks good. Tank mode looks a tad compromised but overall it turned out well considering. Just one nitpick though: couldn't you have given him his visor look with, I dunno, mighty putty or something?

    If you saw how big my hands were you would see why I couldnt do this haha:eek: .
    Ideally I would have liked to have stayed true to form and did this just for toon accuracy

    Great mod there. I agree with ECR, a visor on the bot mode would make him a dead ringer.

    very nice!, but i never liked blitzwing's color scheme, i mean the purples fine, just the one shade of tan makes him look unfinished, but its just nitpicking, great job!

    I think this custom has a lot of personality to it. It definitely reminds me of Nemesis Predaking's custom, but it's very obvious that you've infused a lot of your own personal touches, takes, and details to it. I'd echo the sentiments about the visor, but I think you did well with both modes. The tank mode for Blitzwing was always compromised with the jet nosecone, so I don't see any problems there at all. I'd recommend going back over a few of those detail ares (like the cockpit cage) just touch 'em up.

    Overall, nice work :thumb  I hope we continue to see more work from ya :)

    wow thanks to everyone who likes my work!
    He is a partsformer so some parts need removing and moving about and the wings do have to be taken off unfortunately for tank mode......

    The cannon i cut in such a way that the inside of it slots inside the canopy when in bot mode...

    thanks for your comments and I will be taking your criticisms on board for a voyager blitzwing i have in the pipeline
