    As an Australian, I had no chance to get either of the War for Cybertron Ratchet figures.


    So I'm making my own.
    And HasTak isn't invited. >:T

    I've commissioned someone to 3d model the head so... for now he's G1 Accurate.
    Also this is the first time I've tried VHT Vinyl Dye and... it's hit or miss.
    On some parts it's stunning. On parts like the arms and parts of the shins, it's flaking off. Mmmm, paint chipping. My favourite.
    I probably should have sanded those pieces first. I'm an idiot, I know.

    VHT chips off of painted pieces. Also, it sometimes helps to wipe the pieces down with alcohol prior to spraying.

    Update, thanks to the illustrious Chaos Convoy who graciously modelled a head for me based off my own artwork because I'm vain like that (go commission them if you need a head done, they're great!!), I'm finally getting a head printed off thanks to a local 3D printing service!

    Oh yeah, a 3D printed upgrade part arrived for me today too - so now Ratchet's alt mode is Cyberpunk rather than Cybertronian.

    Latest update, the head has been printed off. It should be sent off soon, and the moment it arrives I'll paint it up so Ratchet can be complete!

    Yeah, that's a custom G2 Megatron head to replace my awful attempt at making a more aesthetically pleasing Megatron.

    good! looks like it printed okay! I was worried I'd modeled the details a little too finely so they wouldn't print clearly. Glad to see I was wrong.

    ...sigh. Update - the dude printed the head halves at a slightly wonky size so neither half fit together correctly. I ended up buying another set from another supplier, and I'm hoping and praying this one turns out well.
    I need to invest in a 3D printer myself... >.>

    HA! Bet you all forgot about this, didn't you?
    Well jokes on you, I forgot about it as well!

    Ratchet is finally done! Not my finest custom for sure... though the head is really the star of the show here. What a gorgeous sculpt.
    IMG_20211024_215915_HDR.png
    And the vehicle mode's pretty good too.

    Where'd you find the roof part?
