    Okay, so I usually get someone like Venksta or Andy to draw these up for me, but they are very busy, and I wasn't even sure what I wanted for Lightspeed, so I'm going to attempt it myself.

    For those who don't know, this will be for another of my non-transforming WST figures. When it came down to Computron, there was very little to work with in terms of pre-existing micro-Technobots. The only ones are Nosecone and Afterburner. Lucky that they were the coolest of the G1 Technobots.

    Now, I can't stand the characters for Scattershot and Strafe, so I'm just going to pretend they died, and this model is from the future, when Lightspeed finally gets upgraded to that spacecraft mode he's been dreaming of, and he takes command of the Technobots. I think I'll just use random Minicons as two or three new Technobots, and I'll use a Micromaster combiner group for connector kibble.

    So anyway.. here's the concept I have for his vehicle mode. It's based mainly on his G1 car mode, but now it's a starfighter instead of a car. I also figured he'd base his new flight mode partially on Scattershot, in honour of his late leader. So that explains all the guns.

    Thoughts?

    i say it's great though I totally thought it was strafe before reading your paragraph, what software are you using to model? rhino? sketchup?

    i would add a fillet or chamfer to the front edge of the wings to make it look more aerodynamic.

    it's also great you detailed up the bottom but the back portion with the wings looks like it was just stuck onto a flat plane on bottom of lightspeed....for a more integrated look you can extend that "ramp" shape onto those two front things and cut out the middle so that turbine/intake thing is still visible.

    I think this looks pretty awesome, Delta. I like Scattershot and Strafe, though :p

    I think the Jetmode looks really great, and a nice upgrade from his car mode. :)

    Lightspeed was always my favorite, too. Was kinda disappointed the rest of the technobots were triggerhappy as they were.
