    At long last, I've finally got all 11 of the original medium sized Autobot cars from the '84 line. Used a white Hound knock-off for this, plus the front bumper and grill from Rollbar, some custom made Red Cross stickers, a little red paint, a Prowl head and some police lightbars off of Ebay. Enjoy.

    I love being able to see the Red Crosses on his doors in bot mode. A throwback to his G1 look with the Red Cross on his shoulder. I left the windshield up in bot mode so you could see the lightbar, and it's also another little throwback to his G1 bot mode, even though the windshield is behind him instead of in front.

    Great work. I like the Scion better for Ratchet, but this works really good

    Meh, I'm not a big fan of the Scion mold. Looks too chubby. Works for Skids I guess, and Blaster, but I just don't see it going with Ratchet. Plus I think it's more likely for an emergency rescue Jeep to exist than an emergency rescue Scion. Of course...we did have a Fire Department Lambourghini in G1, so what do I know? :) 

    And I just don't have the patience to repaint a whole body. This was much quicker and easier.

    May I suggest replacing the crosses made out of two red strips of tape with ones that are actually painted on.

    Otherwise, great work.

    Haha, you noticed I did that, eh? Yeah, I should do that, or make some real Red Cross stickers. I tried cutting some out of red electrical tape but just couldn't get them perfectly symmetrical. So I just did what you see there. I'm sure it'll bother me enough to where one day I actually go ahead and paint some on. :)

    Hmm, and I thought having two of each factory Alt was being an addict...
    Eh, I'm just too lazy to make two of each custom.

    Pretty cool, man, and a very impressive display.
