    Okay, I know the Henkei is out in January and TFU version not long after that. But I have a spare TFU Ironhide after getting 2 Henkei Ironhides, so to kill some time while figuring out the detail bits of my Menasor project, Classics Ratchet is my way of kinda ad hoc filling up my Classics shelves.

    It is still WIP and pardon the crummy pics, cellphone cam, you know.

    Borrowed a camera - Clearer pics added!

    That's a cool repaint! Though if I were you I would have repainted him in his Diaclone colours seeing as you're planning on getting the official Ratchet repaint.

    And here I thought you said you weren't getting yourself a Ratchet.

    Nice paint job.

    I agree with a person. Then you won't have an "ad hoc" fill-in, but a cool permanent addition. That, or make a Diaclone Ironhide... ...what ISN'T sexy in black in the TF universe?

    That's pretty good right there. I really like how the head chevron is smaller on your version than the one on the Hasbro version

    Looks good.
    Any problems with the red bleeding in to the white at all?

    Thanks guys for the comments, we'll I was drawing some concept mods on my other classics project and I was bored out of my mind, so Ironhide became Ratchet.

    As for the red, it does not bleed into the white, I use masking tape to ensure there is a segregation of the colors.

    Diaclone Black Ironhide?...hmmmm...sounds yummy...

    UPdate: After careful consideration, I decided to go for the IDW look / color scheme. :D

    I picked up 2 as well before it being confirmed that ractchet was being released, for this reason. I have put that idea on the back burner, but this is very inspiring.
