    Thank you

    It seemed like a great way add "extra" armor to tank mode & not have to hide them.

    Acidstorm just happens to be the seeker mold I have extra of, could have easily been SS. I've got a spare of him too.

    I don't mind, best of luck to you.

    Love Blitzwing, luv classics, this is full of win.

    I would use brawl turret, it seems flatter, especially since you wont need it to transformer into anything.

    great work so far!

    not that i know anything about painting, but the temperature here in the Toronto area is very desirable. what temp/how far north are you?

    Thanks BH. He totally started off as another "Big Hank moment".
    I've tried to carry that on with the whole project.
    I keep asking myself, WWBHD? :lol 

    ;) 

    I'm in Brampton. The weather is getting better. Problem is I work nights in the winter. Still a tad to chilly at 1am in the morning.
    I'm hoping I can get some paint on this bad boy on Sunday

    Blitz is a conehead very unique. To me if he's a conehead then he's a conehead...besides its your project and well if you're happy then I'm cool with it.

    I think it'll pretty much depend on how you pull off the whole project. I think if it works overall, there won't be a huge problem with it. From what I can tell, this seems to be the case right now. You're pulling the whole project off quite nicely, imo :thumb

    I agree with everyone else, this is coming alone quite nicely.

    As it is "now", the cockpit/cone stands out a bit in tank mode but that's likely because it's still unpainted. Once it has a fresh coat of paint on there, it'll make everything blend together that much more.

    Why too cold to paint, You paint outdoors? I just open the windows with a space heater indoors, don't tell my landlord. Looks great, a tough challenge to take on! I think the dual turrets are cool but if you're only going with one, get the long barrel. Good luck!
