    just a fun custom based on LHC idea using dreadwing mold for blitzwing, I just added a cybertronian hover tank mode and a silly face to capture blitzwing crazy look. Cannon has a green led

    I never would have either!....though I think moving the cannon for jet mode (or leaving it off altogether) might make a better distinction between his vehicle modes--well done all the same! What did you use for the head?

    Nice! That mold does make for a good starter for Blitzwing! And I see you used the RID Heavy Load head, which is just about perfect for Blitzwing. I used the same one for my old Blitzwing project... I love the way it's the right colours and conveys the right personality with almost no modification necessary. :D 

    I agree with the earlier comment about the tank mode... if feels a little too random, and it might be nicer to have something more distinct from the Jet mode, but of course that's easier said than done with that mold.

    Kudos for seeing the potential in the Dreadwing mold. :thumb

    Love the creativity. I was thinking of something similar when I found Dreadwing a few days ago.I was going to do a jet/drill tank (Dai Atlas).

    Even better is your paintjob. That color scheme pops - especially with the black details.

    Great work man!

    hey If im not mistaken You were the one who told me to use that head for my custom animated blitzwing but I never finished that project so I started this one, and yeah I made it as simple as I could with no mods, that's why the tank looks that way lol. Im sure some one will come up with a better design using this mold . Thank you man :)

    Haha! Yeah, that might have been me. :) 

    It would probably take a lot of scratchbuilding to get a proper tank mode out of that mold... too big a project for me! :lol  But the bot and jet modes are perfect! :thumb

    Wow, that worked out really well. Even has the canopy under the barrel in tank mode. Nice job!
