Default De-planing Titans Return Megatron

I was fiddling with TR Megatron last night and decided I didn't like the jet mode, primarily because I didn't like the profile it gave him in bot mode. I also wanted to make him look a bit more different to Blitzwing.

So I popped the wings off and took out the cockpit (it's attached by a single pin) and pose the tank mode backwards (making it a jet-powered tank!). I use his shoulder pylons as a cow-catcher thing.

Taking the cockpit out does leave a gap. In robot mode it's not noticeable and in tank mode the cannon barrel goes over it, covering it a bit.

It's a reversible mod. I left the tail fins in because taking them out would be pretty permanent, and they're not too noticeable in tank or bot mode.

Not a bad idea, you clipped his wings.

It probably wouldn't be too hard to fabricate something out of styrene to fit in the gap left by removing the jet canopy, if the gappy-ness was troublesome in tank mode.

Good mod!
