Hey guys, this is my first try, thanks to Superquad and Plowking for their tireless motivation and guidance... This is Ratchet, Alt style. Now I know everyone is doing this now, and I thought it would be a cool and relatively simple way to get my feet wet in KB. I did want it to stand out, so I weathered and dirtied him up using drybrushing a mix of silver and black paint, which also helped the grey plastic on the white KO hound look more realistic and more like a solid metal. I do think I may have a little too much weathering on him, however, I wanted to make him a bit different in having him look like he has truly been up to some rescue work in the woods of Alabama. He looks kind of like my buddy's four wheeler after a day of muddin, but I think it fits the situation. He is close to being complete, save for a prowl head, and lightbars over the top of the windshield. I am going to also apply some sort of decal on the doors (maybe State of Alabama rescue/trooper seals) and a script "A" in Bama style on the spare tire. Also, I know the pics are blurry I will work on that once he gets finished... After that, is a touch up of 08 BB, based loosely on the one David had on his website (i.e. copper) but not as detailed or professional, and I am adding gold where the yellow robot parts are. Please give me feedback as it can only help me in the long run. Again, this is my first KB/repaint and I welcome all sorts of constructive criticism. Thanks!
