    Yes that’s right; the good doctor popped my Radicons cherry!
    This is my first Radicons post so I thought I might hop on the band wagon and repaint a TF Prime Ratchet of my own. I didn’t intend on him being super show accurate, just enough to satisfy MY show accuracy needs.

    Well as you all know, this guy was WHITE to begin with. So white it was almost racist, that or the toy was designed by a graphic designer. The AM version came with stickers but they really didn’t look good and would probably fall off after a couple of transformations.
    That being said he was in desperate need of some colour! (I’m Australian)
    I masked him and sprayed him with red, gunmetal and silver. Little details were done with brush.

    The only difference between this custom and other regular RID customs are the weapons. He comes with an awesome sword micron which I sprayed as well in light gunmetal (no silly stickers applied). Also as you can see he now has THREE blades! I detached the 2 smaller blades and added 5mm pegs made from styrene to the ends. Ratchet can now have scalpel blades as seen in the show. (I’m afraid to use the term “show accurate”, feels like some ones going to bite my head off and tell me otherwise)

    Anyway, he can have his big sword or a combo of both.

    Overall a little paint does wonders for this figure and I’m really happy with how he turned out. Again he is never going to be as show accurate as some other member’s customs (Cheetimus Prime, absolutely AWSOME, flawless RID Racthet!) but at the moment he is good enough for me.

    Will do some touchups for the siren lights in the future and take better pictures too. Sorry for the bad photography.
