    So, ever since me and my friend saw the Deluxe Ratchet mold, we couldn't help but notice that it seemed kinda... well, feminine. Since he's a lover of all things Fembots, he threw out the idea of giving it a new head and painting it red and white to make it into the Red Alert from Animated.

    Well... thankfully, the Rescue Ratchet deco came out, and saved me just a bit of work.

    For the head, I used a ROTF Chromia and a bit of Apoxie Sculpt to fill in her face and to make her nurse hat. I shaved off a good bit of the collar around the neck joint to allow the new head to fit on (she's got okay range of motion, going side to side and a bit up and down) the two massive heels, and a good chunk of the front of the feet, then sculpted on rounded tips on the front of her feet, and a solid heel on the back. After a few splashed of white on the shins and hands (and a bit of red for her underbust) and she was done.

    This is actually the most extensive mod I've done so far to a Transformer (then again, the only other things I have done are just little details here and there, and one total repaint), so, please, go easy on me.

    I really like this idea. You did a great job! I think I may go out and make me one of these, if I find the mold.

    I was wondering if this might work! That deluxe ratchet even transforms similarly to TFA red!

    You've pulled it off with aplomb! I'm impressed, and more than a little envious. Well done sir!

    Darn, darn and thrice darn, thought I was the only one going to do this (me so :crazy: )

    Are you going to try and do Red Alert's matron hat?

    I can't make her hat as tall as it appeared in Animated because of clearance issues. I'm realizing right now it's hard to see in these pics, but, she has a hat similar, just nowhere near as tall. After it was all done, it kinda reminded me of RiD Prowl's head, to be honest.
