    this is a repaint from an Ironhide, because I could only find one
    Ratchet right now, when I get another I will use him due to already
    being white.....

    anyway this is a kind of bad version of what I will do when I get my
    other one, the paint is thick and kind of aggravates me I didn't do it
    better, but I decided this was only a rough model of what I wanted
    and to mess up here was acceptable.

    the real Ratchet I use will be sprayed and look much better, but this is how he
    will look when finished, although to the Alt mode on the front I will add
    "Ambulance" to the part over the grille, and put "Fire / Rescue" somewhere
    and I also want to do the Rescue Ratchet version.

    for anyone wanting to see my other customs....

    Just make sure you paint the word "Ambulance" backwards when you get to that part. I think this looks a lot better with the white arms and thighs.

    The different light bar makes a world of a difference. Where did you get it?

    the lightbar is from the 07 movie Barricade blue / grey repaint
    with a piece of foil tape wrapped around it to mimic the G1 bar
    minus being red..., but I think the blue bar looks better.

    I don't like the comic looks of most of the Transformers, I model mine after
    the cartoon, I didn't like Ratchet as a red head, I never was much into comic books anyway.

    I like that you lost the rear side windows. Whiting them out made a huge difference.
