    That's going to be the fun part. Blending it all together.

    Thanks

    Yep, I basically have a balcony in my Apt. I use to paint inside in the winter,
    but with my daughter in the house now. I really don't want to take that chance.

    This looks great. I love the visor. I think both modes are perfect and that was a great use of the seeker launcher on the top. Can't wait to see this painted. I think you may have come up with the ideal Blitzwing formula.

    Are those Movie Deluxe brawls tank turrets? or someone else's?

    Also, does the turret detach and stay off the figure in jet mode? any way to trim it down to tuck underneath or just too thick for that?

    Looks great.

    NP, this is looking great! Much better than I expected it to be, I really really like this. Only complaint is that it looks.....stiff, you know what I mean? But that's the seeker mold for ya. Wow, now I can't wait to see it painted, it's going to make all kinds of difference!!!

    Getting closer to the finish line now! I'm giddy with anticipation. I may even give this a shot too! Seems to be a few great versions going on here!:thumbs2:

    I was trying to figure out a way to slip, at least one seeker launcher in there.
    Thanks for picking up on it.

    :lol , DO IT !!!!!

    Yep, the turret just comes off for plane mode. It's way to thick & personally
    I'd rather remove it, then have a tank turret hanging under a plane.

    He's not mush worst then the seeker mold. The only point of articulation,
    BW has lost is shoulder front to back, but I get what you saying its a "blocky" design & that was kinda part of the plan.
    I wanted to be "G1ish" but with a Classics update.
    I'm not big into posing my figures, so for me this is just perfect.

    Thanks bud :thumb 

    Ah how about, ..................... NO :stick:

    Both alt modes look really nice. Very clever how the wings fold in on tank mode.

    Duuude, this is amazing. I think Blitzwing benefits when the alt modes aren't made to look realistic, but more futuristic. o: (at least, I THINK that's what you were going for - sorry for any misconception!)

    If I could commission you (alas, cannot spend moneys at the mo') I'd totally love to own a Classics Blitzwing like this <3

    Thanks again, everybody.
    I really didn't think BW would be such a hit.
    Now the pressure is really on to knock out a great paint job.

    dude i love this. and as superquad 7 told me, sometimes when things turn out a little different than you planned, it works in the long run. I think you have done a bang up job and i cant wait to see the bot mode.I totally dig where you are going with this and think its top notch.
