    Made by mashing 2 figures together, with a drop of epoxy for good measure.

    Airbrushed with a primer, basecoat and highlights, then light washes and panel lining done, highlights with hand brush and some drybrushing done.

    Modded the head to fit the ball joint, sword from a lego or something with a new handle which i had to file with my wifes nail file (she doesnt know...)

    All finished off with a gloss and semi gloss coat.

    The rest of pics is at http://s866.photobucket.com/albums/ab226/Kenjopops/Custom Transformer Voyager Blitzwing/

    C&C welcome

    Wow, I've never really thought this method made a good Blitzwing, but now I've really warmed up to it.

    Awesome job. :thumb

    One of the best Blitzwing customs I've seen.


    Good job on remembering that Blitzwing has a sword. Very few Blitzwing customs I've seen before lack his signature sword.

    TWICE! This one is very cool though. I like the colors and the use of the Treadbolt arms.

    GREAT job!!! You may disagree, but I think the tank mode would look even better if the cannons were level or tilted upward as opposed to tilting down...
