    Hello boys and girls,

    for this week I show you up my next small custom.
    It's deluxe-class Ratchet from the new DOTM line.

    A very great figure I think, much better than the old ROTF version!

    You can read my german review of him here:
    New Transformers Archive - [Custom] DOTM Deluxe Ratchet

    I think I do my best to complete it with my own colors.
    All parts in robot mode are painted, the green parts are a mix from
    yellow, green and white.
    For comparison, I've added a comparative picture.

    The MechTech-gun is not on the figure, because I think it does not look good on him. But he becomes an other gun next time.:cool: 

    Please leave comments to my work, it will help me for my next customs:)

    Holy crap, I had no idea the mould was so accurate in the sculpt. (mostly because of how lost all the detail is in the sea of green) Absolutley amazing. I might use this as a guide for when I eventually get one. :D

    Thanks guys :) 

    I don't know, it's just a small painting, but the figure looks much more better than before...

    Maybe because all the sculptured details are only painted light green?

    @SPLIT LIT: Yes sure ;)

    As I said over at NTF before:
    I really like this repaint. It's something, that isn't so catchy at the first glimpse but when you look on the details, you'll notice the fine details and the great drybrush!
    Good work! ;)
