    Good afternoon fellow TF fans. Here is my attempt at Prime RID Ratchet.

    Vehicle Mode:

    Not the best paint job in the work and I didn't have the right color paint that I was looking for so I figured I go for an orange style ambulance. However it does show that my skills are improving and that's never a bad sign. Progress is essential for a customizer and we all have to start somewhere.

    Robot Mode:

    Robot mode I feel that I did a better job on and it truly shows. The blades were painted over with Silver Acrylics and detailed with light blue enamel. Prime RID Ratchet is not the most fun toy out there when compared to his Wave 1 and 2 mates, however it does work for the character I feel.

    I'm in the process of repainting all of the Prime figures alongside some newer ones. So far Optimus, Cliffjumper, and Arcee are thoroughly finished. Things have been rather slow but progress is still being made. When I'm finished prepare for an avalanche of custom works from me. :D

    Tape off lines that you want to come out straight. Looks good for the most part but it does need to be cleaned up. Continue to improve and take your time. Rushing to finish something will only lead to mistakes.

    I hear you on that one mate, I've become a bit of a perfectionist in a sense.
