    Hey folks,

    I've decided to do my own version of BT Ratchet and thought I'd share a few pictures......I have yet to do the new head, and I am also making some custom accessory parts for this piece. Vehicle mode pictures will come soon.

    In the meantime, enjoy! :thumb

    Let me know your thoughts! =)

    **EDIT: Here is a new picture of the still work in progress head. Thought I would break down and show a sneak peak.**

    Looks like the KO to me Hound had no brush guard (let us know either way though).

    Good work it is looking good. I can't wait to see the alt pics.

    Oh, GORGEOUS work. I really like the colors on your ratchet. The chrome red looks really nice on him. Can't wait to see the vehicle mode pics!

    I will be rounding off segments of the head, and it will also recieve a "horns" piece like the animation model. I have a light bar on order and will also be designing a custom hardtop attachment that will go over the back......I am going to wait to release vehicle mode pictures until the custom is done......Might as well show it off right..... =)

    By the way, how is the quality of those KO's? I am considering buying the white hound to do the same thing.

    Hey Reactor,

    sorry for the delay in responding back. The quality is half way decent. The parts on the pieces don't line up on some parts as well as they do the BT's or ALT's, but they're good. I am actually intermixing parts between an ALT and the KO.

    Where are you getting the lightbar and how did you make the personalized license plate? I think the license plate thing was covered elsewhere but I can't find it...

    Keep up the good work!
