I've been out of the game a long, long time, but I finally have some free time to pursue a past hobby. I've been wanting to paint the version of Ratchet I want since the moment I saw the Siege Ratchet figure. There is so much detail left whitewashed out in this mold. I want to strike a balance of bringing out the finer details without making it too busy. While I originally started out wanting to make a more cartoon acurate version, I have seen a lot of repainted versions of him lately that match that scheme. So I decided to go for the red-helmet Marvel Comics version, which honestly was the best G1 version in my own opinion. So this thread will be my day to day, W.I.P. journal. Here's to getting back to business after a dozen years! Edit: Project complete, final pictures further on in the thread.
